Shower’s silicone sealant is an ideal area for black mold because it’s a flexible surface that keeps moisture and is generally wet and dark.
The moisture amount, along with the lack of air circulation in a shower can lead to mold growth. Cleaning the mold is important for the silicone appearance and for your family’s health.
Kill black mold
In order to kill mold from the bathroom sealant, you can choose several chemicals such as chlorine and ammonia, or you can choose a natural product you can mix it by yourself. Put 2/3 white vinegar in a spray bottle and add 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Whatever product you use, simply spray the silicone mold from the shower and let the mixture act for about an hour. This will kill the mold spores and will prevent them from growing and spreading.
Black mold removal
Once you’ve killed the mold spores, you can have the fun job of cleaning the shower silicone mold. The best way is to use a toothbrush and an old towel. Clean the silicone and rinse with hot water. As mold grows in warm, moist areas, the heat will kill any remaining spores after washing. Rinse the shower with very hot water and dry it with a clean towel.
Black rust prevention
To prevent mold recurrence, it’s important not to create a proper growing environment. Simple things like: drying the shower when you finish using it; spraying the shower walls with vinegar once a week; using a fan or a dehumidifier in the bathroom and letting in plenty of natural light – will help prevent the recurrence of black mold.
