Common Problems Facing Your Bathrooms and Wash Areas

The two most pressing issues facing your bathroom and shower areas are moisture and humidity. They’re completely unavoidable because humidity and moisture are always present. Over time, if left unchecked, the constant barrage of moisture and dampness can severely drop the cleanliness of your wash areas and bathrooms.

Mold thrives in damp and humid environments, so they’re an adversary to your clean wash areas. Over time, mold will sprout in this type of environment and become a pest to both you and your occupants. Mold is easy to spot due to the foul smell that it produces. It can also drastically affect ones health due to poor air quality, with symptoms like wheezing, runny noses, coughing, watering/irritated eyes, and even rashes.

As a facility manager, you need to take necessary steps to eliminate mold and mildew from your bathroom and showers to prevent these unwanted health issues. While cleaning products can be very helpful in combatting mold growth, it may already be too late because mold could actually be growing inside your shower stalls. It’s easy to tell, because you’ll notice foul odors coming from stalls, even if you’ve already cleaned the shower areas extensively.

Combat the Issues with HDPE Shower Stalls

If you notice that your current shower stalls have been infiltrated with mold and mildews, it’s too late to try and salvage the partitions. However, you can replace your current shower stalls with a better material that can actually resist the growth of mold. One such material is HDPE (high-density polyethylene). This plastic is highly durable and can help keep mold growth at bay.

HDPE is a solid plastic, which won’t absorb water, preventing mold from sprouting. This material is also resistant to scratches and dents, so you don’t need to keep repainting it, which also improves your air quality. Furthermore, this material makes shower stalls easy to clean, so you won’t need to worry about unsightly soap stains.

Long Lasting and Low Maintenance

Another major benefit to switching over to HDPE shower stalls is that they’ll last for a long time. Not only are they impact resistant, but they won’t delaminate or corrode for at least 25 years, which cuts down on costs and maintenance. These HDPE stalls are also made from 100% post-consumer materials, making them a highly durable and sustainable shower stall.
