Shower’s silicone sealant is an ideal area for black mold because it’s a flexible surface that retains moisture in a wet and dark environment.
The moisture amount, along with the lack of air circulation lead to mold growth. Cleaning the mold is important for the sealant appearance and for everyone’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.
Pour 2/3 white vinegar in a spray bottle and add 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Whatever product you use, simply spray the mold from the shower sealant and let the mixture act for about an hour. This will kill the mold spores and will prevent it from growing and spreading.
🟨 Black mold removal
Once you’ve killed the mold spores, it’s now for cleaning the shower silicone mold. Use a toothbrush and an old towel. Clean the sealant and rinse with hot water. Mold grows in warm, moist areas, but extra heat will kill any remaining spores after washing. Rinse the sealant with very hot water and dry it with a clean towel.
🟫 Black rust prevention
In order to prevent mold recurrence, avoid creating 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.
