Cleaning Shower Curtains –Cleaning tips and tricks from maid service company in Surrey BC.

Mold is a problem all over the bathroom, and the shower curtain is no exception. Mold thrives in warm, damp environments, such as your shower. The mold can trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. In addition, bacteria can grow on a dirty shower curtain. This can be dangerous for people with respiratory problems, young children or the elderly. Keeping your curtain clean is the best way to prevent illness.

Clean your shower curtain with a cleaning solution that is made to kill mold. Most materials used in curtains can’t be put in the washing machine. Check the cleaning instructions that came with your curtain. If it can be machine washed, use hot water and a little bleach to kill mold and germs. Another option is to wash the curtain and apply lemon juice. Set the curtain outside in the sun. The sun reacts with the lemon juice to kill mold.

Once you have removed the mold, it’s important to prevent it from coming back. Here are some things you can do to keep the mold away.

Make sure your bathroom is well ventilated. Use the vent when you shower. If you don’t have a vent, consider having one installed.

If you don’t have a vent, open the bathroom window. This isn’t as effective as a vent, but will help.

After washing your curtain, soak it in salt water before drying. The salt water will help prevent future mold growth.
