How to Get Rid of Bathtub Mold

November 1st, 2018

Relaxing in a hot bath after a long day of work can help you melt away the stress of the day, but a bathtub full of moldy grout can be anything but relaxing. Guaranteed Plumbing & Heating, Inc. provides more than just Philadelphia heating repair—we’re also the experts in bathtub replacements! In fact, we’d like to share these four simple steps to help you destroy grout in your bathroom today!


  • Gather your supplies. To remove mold from your bathroom grout, you’ll only need two simple supplies: plenty of baking soda and a strong brush. Mix a bit of tap water with your banking soda until it forms a paste-like substance and spread it over the mold growth.
  • Let it sit. Be patient and allow the baking soda to work its magic on your grout by sitting. If you have very dirty grout, don’t be afraid to allow your baking soda mixture to sit for an hour or two before cleaning.
  • Get to scrubbing. The most effective tool against mold is good old fashioned elbow grease! With a firm hand, scrub away the mold and rinse your brush after every few minutes. If your mold still isn’t coming off, apply another layer of baking soda paste, wait a while, and repeat the process.
  • Prevent mold from reforming. Just like you have to visit a dentist for regular checkups in order to stop cavities from forming, you need to clean your bathroom regularly before mold can take root in your grout again. Once you’ve gotten rid of the mold in your bathroom, take steps to prevent it from re-growing. Remember to leave the fan on or the window open after you shower, add a weekly bathtub disinfection to your chore list, and mix up a spray bottle of equal parts vinegar and water for an anti-mold spray that can be used after every bath or shower.
