Do You Know What Lurks in Your Toilet?
At a glance, your toilet looks spick and span. So you assume that it is hygienic and free of germs. But is it really? A closer look might reveal that your toilet isn’t as clean as you believe it is.
Upon closer inspection, you might catch sight of less obvious stains, dirt between the tiles and soap scum – the white, chalky residue that appears as a film layer over surfaces. If you actually run your hands under the sink, or at the corners of the wall, you might find a blob of slime that you are not going to like or even black mold! Many of these may blend in with your toilet tiles or fixtures so well that you miss them altogether! But these are exactly what you don’t want in your toilet. Mold, germs and bacteria are unhygienic and can cause health problems.
Why is mold so common even in the cleanest of toilets? The toilet is often wet, thus making it moist and humid, an environment that is perfect for mold to thrive. When surfaces are not cleaned or dried, mildew begins to form. Eventually, mildew turns into mold1.
You don’t want to ignore mold for they are more than just an eyesore. Mold spores can possibly trigger allergies. Furthermore, for those with pre-existing respiratory conditions, mold spores might irritate the lining of their lungs and increase the risk of asthma attacks1.
That’s why it is important to regularly use specialised mold cleaners. Mold grows by extending roots into surface matters and ordinary cleaners will not be able to remove them effectively.
