I am doing some improvements to our bathroom - we have problems with mould
growth on grout. Can anyone recommend a way of removing and keeping joints
clear in future. If I retile is it ok to tile over joints that have had
mould growth? The tiled area is around the bath but we have a shower over
the bath that is used at least 3 times a day.
clean off the mould using any proprietory cleaner (available in supermarkets
for mould in showers)...
If you need to, scrape out and regrout or use a white grout pen to re-whiten
The only way to stop mould growth is to regularly clean the shower (after
every use) and dry it down, whilst maintaining good ventilation - open
window or fan... you now get dehumidifiers that work using chemicals rather
than plug in to dry the air.
