Bathroom mold is very common due to high humidity and consistent moisture exposure.
All mold needs moisture to grow, and no place in your house has more moisture than the bathroom. Due to humidity, condensation, leaking pipes, and other water sources, bathrooms are the ideal environment for mold to grow.
Bathroom mold is common and likely, but there's no reason to panic if a small spot appears on a shower tile. However, professional help is recommended when there is a serious mold problem, such as mold growing on drywall or wood subflooring. Professional help is always recommended when the affected area is larger than 10 square feet.

Mold can appear in as little as 24-48 hours, meaning it's a threat even if you regularly clean your bathroom. Even if mold doesn't appear on visible surfaces, it can still grow behind the walls and ceilings, on the insulation, and anywhere else it has a food source and moisture exposure.
There are several problems that arise from mold in the bathroom. First and foremost are the health risks, as mold can cause irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin, among other potentially severe problems.
