How Mold Accumulates in Locker Room Showers
- Ventilation limitations.Ventilation is a must for keeping relative humidity below levels that are ideal for mold growth. Water vapor from showers instead clings to porous surfaces like towels, rugs, and cleaning brushes. Keep porous items clean and dry to prevent the spread of mold.
- Excess humidity.Too much humid air combined with hours of hot water usage a day can quickly lead to mold growth—lower mold risk by setting the AC lower or investing in dehumidifiers for your facilities.
- Dirt buildup.Mold is not an indicator that your showers are dirty. Still, it cannot grow without the right environment and consumption of organic material like dust and dirt—clean showers daily, especially in hard-to-reach areas like ceilings and grout.
