How to Prevent Mold on Grout

Steps You Can Take

What Is the Black Stuff in My Shower?

Moldy grout is a quick way to take your shower or bath from relaxing and cleansing to uncomfortable and yucky. While there are ways to get rid of the unsightly dark fungus, your easiest solution is to take steps to prevent mold on grout. Read on to learn what you can do.

How to Prevent Mold on Grout

Let the space dry. Mold thrives in moist areas, so it’s no wonder your bathroom is an easy spot for it to appear. Leave your shower door or curtain open after a shower to give the space a greater opportunity to dry out. You can also use a squeegee to really get rid of the water.

Seal your grout. Your tile is a non-porous surface that is hard for mold to cling to. Your grout, however, has the perfect texture for moisture to get stuck and for mold to grow. You can make it more challenging for mold to grow and for other stains to pop up in your grout by sealing it. It creates a protective barrier. If you’re ready to seal your grout, you can follow our how-to guide.

Clean regularly. Don’t give mold the opportunity to spread! Clean your shower on a regular schedule to prevent mold. Consider using a daily shower spray that helps keep mold and mildew at bay.
