Customer Question

I just noticed some black mould in my bathroom while I was showering so I cleaned it off but my 6 month old was in her bouncer in the bathroom with me because she won't settle if I leave her. I didn't use any cleaning products just a scrubbing brush but with the hot water running I'm now concerned could she have inhaled it? Should I worry?

Hi.
Really nothing to worry about here. She wasn't exposed long enough to any mould that might have been dispersed into the air to cause her any problems.
I would suggest, though, that you have your house or apartment inspected for mould and have that eradicated if it's more diffuse than just in your bathroom
