Fungus marks on ceiling!
November 16, 2012 4:00pm CST
Recently, in my shower ceiling some dark marks are starting to appear. As far as I know they appeared because of the humidity trapped inside my shower booth. Do you know any ways to help with cleaning it, and also any advice to prevent it from appearing again? I am thinking of scrubbing it off and then repainting the ceiling. And then I'll have to think of a way to take the steam from the hot water away... I have a little fan that is drawing air out.. but apparently it is not enough.. Any of you had any similar problems and dealt with them?

You can spray it with bleach and wipe it down. That will kill the mold for the moment, but until you get rid of the humidity in there, it will come back. Maybe you can get a bigger fan to draw out more moisture from the air. You can clean it and paint it, but if the main problem isn't fixed, it will come right back eventually.

Ah... thanks for the advice. At least it's good to know that some bleach can clean it away.. that will save me the trouble of scratching the ceiling of and redoing it. Maybe i should get rid of the booth somehow, or change it.it traps all the steam in there and i doesn't let any of it go out..so it all goes up to the ceiling, and it forms the mold there :(
