Mould in showers can be a sign of excess water and moisture sitting in the showers and can be an indication that your shower is leaking.
Most people use bleach to try and remove mould, however bleach generally only changes the colour of the mould and does not completely kill the spores.
Superior Sealed Tiling and Waterproofing recommend using a mixture of 80% vinegar to 20% water to clean your shower and kill the mould spores.
If you have mouldy silicone and grout in your shower, you can try using a bleach type of mould killer to bring the area back to life.
Because bleach is so strong, it is important that you are very careful not to damage the silicone work in the shower as this is part of the waterproofing of the shower. This can be considered an ‘invasive’ cleaning method, and removing silicone or using very powerful cleaning products can void your warranty for your leaking shower repair.
If you are unable to remove the mould from your shower, a de-grout re-grout service can help to bring your shower back to life with new grout and silicone by our professional and qualified tradesmen wall and floor tilers and waterproofers in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie & Sydney.
