How to Clean Mold in Shower
Showers consistently provide the perfect environment for mold growth. Moisture mixed with body oils, hair and soap scum buildup are common cellulose materials on which this fungus feeds and survives.
Not only is it unsightly, it is also bad for your health – mold releases microscopic spores that can cause allergic reactions, runny noses and sneezing, as well as irritating odors.
Simple Green d Pro 3 Plus Antibacterial Cleaner can control and inhibit mold growth on hard, non-porous surfaces such as your shower walls and shower door. The triple threat cleaner, disinfectant and deodorizer rids your shower of both the off-putting sight and smell of mold.
Before cleaning, be sure to protect yourself from contact with mold by wearing a long sleeve shirt and long pants as well as plastic or rubber gloves and goggles. If your mold removal project appears to be larger than what your experience level or comfort level is, professional services may need to be consulted before proceeding.
- Prepare your Simple Green solution. Use 2 ounces of Simple Green d Pro 3 Plus Antibacterial Cleaner for each gallon of water.
- Apply solution. Apply your solution to the affected areas with a spray bottle and cloth, sponge, brush, mop or sprayer. For spray applications, spray 6-8 inches from surface. Do not breathe spray. Make sure you thoroughly wet the surface and keep it wet for 10 minutes. Rinsing of floors is not necessary unless they are to be waxed or polished.
- Wipe dry. Wipe the area dry with a clean cloth or allow it to air dry.
- Repeat to prevent new growth. Repeat this treatment every 7 days using a fresh Simple Green solution each time. Repeat more often if new growth appears.
