What is mould?

The appearance of mould in our home is very common, especially in damp or poorly ventilated areas.

Given the conditions of temperature, light and humidity that it needs to proliferate, the area where mould most commonly appears is the bathroom because it is also usually a room with poor ventilation.

What is mould?

Mould is a fungus, and if the colony grows it can affect our body causing health problems. It is one of the most prevalent fungi inside our homes and usually goes unnoticed or is invisible until it has already affected a large area. This is why
it is important to eliminate it and above all take the necessary measures to prevent its appearance.

We give you 4 basic tips to eliminate and prevent mould in the bathroom:

  1. To prevent mould, it is very important to air the bathroom every time you shower.
    Most moulds need 24-48 hours of moisture to start growing. Therefore, if the right material is damp in your home for more than 24 hours, then you are at risk of mould starting to grow.
  2. It is important to avoid water gathering in the corners as far as possible.
    This encourages mould growth. Dry the corners and joints with a cloth to avoid settled water, especially if there is poor ventilation
  3. It affects the drain area in the bathtub or the shower.
    It is that which offers some resistance when draining the water and can lead to a build-up of debris. Spray Sanytol Anti-Scale Bath Spray on the area to be disinfected and then spread the product with a clean, damp cloth to leave a bathtub that is clean of germs.
  4. Clean and disinfect the bathroom regularly, at least every 2 days.
    To eliminate mould from the bathroom, use Active Bathroom Disinfectant Foam – Eucalyptus. Apply it direct on the mouldy surface and it will eliminate the mould, make the dirt disappear easily and kill 99.9% of germs. If the joint is stained, Multi-Purpouse Disinfectant Bathroom will eliminate the fungus but will not bleach the joint. A bleaching product will be needed for this.
