Mold Damaged Bath Wood Window

The mold damaged bath wood window constantly creates problems for their homeowners. What are we going to do about it? If you understand anything about mold and wood, you probably know that it doesn't belong inside of your shower or bath tub area.

As a matter of fact, it probably doesn't belong near or around your bath tub or shower either. If you notice the mold damage seems to concentrate on the bottom of the window sill. This type of behavior is normal, especially in a situation where water from the shower head is constantly spraying this area.

If you have mold growing on your wood bathroom windows like the picture above, there's a good chance that you have water damaged wood framing underneath the visual damage. Whenever you run into a situation like this, you should make the repairs as soon as possible to prevent additional home repairs.

Home Repair Tip: Remove the wood window trim and wood window casement if possible and replace with a mold resistant material.

The window was replaced, but the damaged window trim and casement wasn't. It doesn't make any sense to install a new window that's going to be surrounded by damaged building materials like this.

If you're thinking about doing any home repairs, you should do them correctly or don't do them at all.
