Preventing Bathroom Mold with Acrylic Wall Systems

By | Bathroom Maintenance, Uncategorized | No Comments

Mold spores are most likely to develop in warm, damp areas. Unfortunately, the bathroom is often a high-temperature, high-humidity space, making it very susceptible to this issue. Routine use of vented ceiling fans or leaving bathroom doors and windows open after hot baths or showers will moderate temperature and humidity, however, this may not be sufficient for preventing all instances of mold and mildew growth. The good news is that the following tips will make it easy for you to maintain a pristine and mold-free bathroom.

Removing Mold:

Mold is best removed with a disinfecting solution of bleach and water. You can mix one-half cup of bleach in one gallon of water and use this to treat all affected surfaces. For stubborn areas, this solution can be sprayed on and allowed to sit for several minutes before wiping surfaces clean.

The best way to prevent mold and mildew is to remodel your bathroom with Acrylic Wall Systems.  Acrylic Wall Systems are a new innovation in bathroom designs that are easy to clean, relatively low in cost and aesthetically pleasing. Best of all, these surfaces are naturally resistant to mold. Installing Acrylic Wall Systems is a highly effective form of mold prevention, especially when paired with regular efforts to vent the bathroom and use cleaning solutions that include chlorine bleach.  Contact us today to learn about the many benefits of Acrylic Wall Systems, and explore your bathroom remodeling options!

Remodeling Your Master Bathroom

Your master bathroom is your retreat, your place of luxury.  Remodeling a master bathroom has its own unique challenges and also advantages, since it is a more personal area of your home.  Keep these tips in mind as you plan your design:

• Make sure that there’s a comfortable flow from your bedroom to your bathroom.
• Make sure to allocate spaces in your bathroom for different functions.
• The fixtures and materials you use in your bathroom remodel should match your tastes as well as the character of the rest of your house, but, remember that there is room for a little more creativity since it is one of the most personal spaces in your home.
• Your new, remodeled bathroom should have a pleasant view from multiple perspectives. If the bathroom door is open, make sure that the first thing you see from the bedroom is the beautiful bath you’ve installed. On the other hand, make sure that when you’re relaxing in your bath, that you can see the view outside your bedroom window, rather than the hamper overflowing with dirty laundry.                                                                                 • Consider what you want out of your new master bath, and how much time you will be using it.  Do you intend to spend a lot of time relaxing in it, or is it simply a place to shower and get ready for your day?  This is one of the most important aspects to consider as it will affect a lot of the different parts of the overall remodel.
