How Hazardous is Black Mold in the Shower?

April 14th, 2011 by admin

My roomate and I have been smelling a horrific mildewy smell for the past couple of months. We only smell it after our suitemate takes a shower, so we’re not sure if it has anything to do with the mold, but we blew it off. Today my roomate finally decided to clean the shower and when she lifted up the mat she found the underside to be completely covered with “black mold“. We cleaned it thouroughly with what we had, but I was wondering how harmful it might be to us.


Hi, in the long run mold of any kind and color is very bad to breath in. Use the homemade Mold remover. Borax is a natural mold retardant. If you live in an area where the humidity levels are high, try adding a cupful to your soapy water whenever you wash down the walls. 1/2 cup borax 1/2 cup vinegar 1 cup water In a spray bottle, combine the ingredients and spray generously on black moldy surfaces. Wipe clean with a damp sponge. You might want to invest in a good air purifier too, and a fan in the bathroom. Hope that helps, good luck

    It’s not hazardous. It’s called mildew, and grows were there is dampness. Now that it’s clean, just hang it over the rod to dry after the bath or shower.
