1. MOLD (Bathroom Remodeling tip #1)

  • Mold (a furry growth of minute fungus occurring typically in moist warm conditions) can form from soap scum and grime build-up.
  • This build-up provides a food source for mold and the running water from the tap provides a source of moisture.
  • Mold may be small, but it can pose serious health risks. Toxic levels of mold vary but can affect breathing, irritate mucous membranes, suppress the immune system, and cause excessive coughing, sneezing, and headaches.

With the bathtub being a place for your sanity and sanitation.

What to look for: Brown mold, and sometimes darker black mold are commonly found on bath tile grout and in sealers in tiny spores grouped together. Hidden bathroom mold may be present in wall cavities around bath tub or shower controls that have leaked into the wall cavity.

2. MILDEW (Bathroom Remodeling tip #2)

  • Like mold, mildew can also cause all sorts of breathing problems, rashes, allergies, migraines, and nervous system issues.
  • Mildew usually grows in a flat pattern and appears either powdery or fluffy. It can be easily identified as a patch of white, gray, or yellowish fungus and commonly found in moist areas.
  • Touching or inhaling mildew can cause a wide range of health problems in both allergic and non-allergic people.
  • Dirt, grease, soap, or hair are all culprits leading to a backed up shower drain. This barricade makes for pipes to stay wet longer due to inadequate draining, giving time for mildew to cultivate.

What to look for: a thin whitish coating consisting of fungi. If found its time for a bathroom refresh or remodel.

3. LEAKING (Bathroom Remodeling tip #3)

  • Uh oh! As if dealing with the cleanup of a surface-level leak isn’t bad enough, there are always the unknowns behind the unseen damage a leak potentially creates!
  • As discussed above, mold and mildew are invited in moist environments where water sits for long periods of time. A leaking tub is definitely worth replacing because of this.
  • Beyond that, a leaking tub is costing you more! It’s literally money down the drain as water is not just a consumable but also potentially damaging areas it is escaping to.

What to look for: Draw a full bath of water then plug the drain. Let it stand for a few hours to monitor if the water level decreases over time. If it does, you should think seriously about a bathtub replacement.


  • Nothing says ‘relax’ like a clean environment.
  • Not only do stains make a bathtub less alluring, they also carry heaps of harmful and unhygienic bacteria and germs.
