A couple of years ago a new extension to my home gave me a fantastic new master bedroom and a large shower room ensuite. As a lover of showers, It was my pride and joy.
Despite having cleaned it numerous times, the ceiling above the shower head (it is a chrome overhead shower) is black with mold. Also I have mosaic style tiling around the shower which is a nightmare to clean and is also moldy.
Find a decent cleaning product and clean it all?
Change my exctractor fan for a better one? (it comes on when the light is turned on)
Buy special paint for the ceiling?
Replace the tiles with more suitable tiles? (Is this possible without ripping all of the bathroom suite out as it is all sealed in.)
i dont want to sound depressing but my experience tells me that once you have mold etc in plaster and grout you wont get rid off it
the mold is growing from the back to the front and all you will do is in effect is cut the head of it
if it was me id cut out the plaster im assuming its plaster board so find the edge of the board and take it down and replace look on the market for some form of sealer prior to re skimming and then reseal it again you may want look at tanking kits from good tiling shops
change the fan ,make sure it is on after showering always open a window and leave the door open this causes air movement and reduces condensation
as for the grout yes you can buy various products but the only guaranteed way is to remove grout and regrout using a micro ban grout and sealants if this to much off a job then keep cleaning
