In spite of intense cleaning, mold always appears on bathroom ceilings. Here is the most effective natural way to get rid of mold on bathroom ceilings.
Simply cleaning it every time isn’t enough. In order to eliminate the fungus in your bathroom, you must actually kill it. If the mold on your bathroom ceiling is around ten square feet or less, you can easily remove it. Here are the steps to a proper cleaning.
Protecting yourself is the first step. For this reason, you will need gloves, goggles, and a cotton mask.
Before beginning the procedure, ensure that all vents are closed so that spores cannot spread. In addition, open a window to prevent intoxication.
1. Cleaning The Mold From The Bathroom Ceiling
In order to accomplish this, you will need to wash the area with a DIY solution. The solution consists of mild detergent, tea tree oil, and warm water. After applying this mix to the ceiling, let it dry. Next, prepare a solution of 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide and 1 quart water and spray it over the problem area. After half an hour, apply the second layer and let it sit for another half an hour.
2. After cleaning, get rid of the bathroom ceiling mold source
In order to prevent mold growth after cleaning, you should also treat the ceiling. That’s how you will kill any remaining fungus spores. To do this, you need to apply Borax to the entire surface of the ceiling. Borax has stain-removing properties and helps control bacteria and fungi, so there’s no need to rinse it.
3. Make sure there are proper conditions in your bathroom
Cleaning and eliminating the mold source is not enough. You will also need to make sure you check everything in your bathroom that might bring moisture back. Whenever there is moisture present, mold will reappear. That’s why it’s important to solve the moisture problem as well. You need to identify the reason why moisture is accumulating in your bathroom. Here are a few things you should check:
▪ water leaks
▪ plumbing leaks
▪ wrapped pipes
If any of these have issues, fix them right away!
