Sure, you Windex your mirrors and keep your towels clean. But how often are you scrubbing the tub? Are you getting between the tiles and into the grout? Grout is almost always white when it’s laid in; grout should stay white. As soon as it starts to become grey or even brown, you’ve let it go too long. Are you letting the bathroom be dry for at least as long as it’s wet? Are your exhaust fans operating properly? Is anything leaking? Mold loves bathrooms.
