The bathroom is a place particularly exposed to the occurrence of fungus. Good conditions for fungus development are created by the prevailing conditions – high temperature and high humidity. In the absence of good ventilation, the fungus on the masonry wall.
The fungus on the wall not only looks bad but also harms.
Mudging on the bathroom walls not only negatively affects the aesthetics of the interior. It can also be harmful to the health of the household. Mushroom usually appears as a result of poor or no ventilation, improper damp proofing of walls or insufficient room heating. As a rule, a small bathroom space in which a large amount of water vapor is collected is an ideal environment for the development of fungi and mold.
Remember that permanent removal of fungus requires above all eliminating the cause of its formation. Otherwise, the problem may (or rather will) come back, even when using the best methods and preparations.
The formation of efflorescence on the wall or ceiling of the bathroom has a specific, often invisible at first glance, a reason to be located and removed. The best effects are quick reactions before the fungus spreads over a larger area.
The fungus can be caused, for example, by moistening of walls by a leaking pipe or by continuous flooding of a given wall fragment. An important role in its creation is also played by the lack of proper bathroom ventilation. The efflorescence visible on the walls and ceilings often conceal the problem of improper thermal insulation of the building. However, then it may be necessary to perform wall insulation and to install an effective heating system.
If the plaster is not damaged as a result of fungi, then we do not have to get rid of it. However, before starting work, first of all, thoroughly dry the surface. After this treatment, rub the mouldered wall with a sponge soaked in water with bleach. This simple procedure will allow you to clean the substrate and remove the spores of the fungus.
Then we can put a fungicide on the cleaned, dried surface. It should not only be effective, but also adapted to indoor use. Suitable for this include aqueous preparations, sold in ready-to-use form. The product is applied to the wall behind the brush, roller or by spraying.
After the time specified by the manufacturer of the preparation, wash the surface with water, then wait until it is completely dry and apply the preparation once more – to ensure that the fungicide works and destroys the mycelium.
Places covered with fungicide can be additionally painted with paint that covers stains and stains. Paints of this type isolate dirt. They can also protect against the re-emergence of fungus.
