  2. Always run your bathroom exhaust fan while you are bathing or showering for at least 30 minutes after. This will reduce mold and mildew-causing moisture.
  3. After your shower or bath, use a squeegee or towel to remove water from the walls.

  2. Wash your bath mats often. Mold and mildew like any place or item that is damp, not only shower surfaces.
