Well, clearly I didn’t get it all when I wiped up the goop that had formed while in storage for a week. You can see what I missed grew into a golf ball sized “growth” of disgusting ick in less than 7 days.
This is what it looked like when I broke it off the wall. Along the line where the grout meets the tile and the wall to the right you can see a black line. This isn’t visible when you look but the flash brought it out for sure. If you try to spray cleaner it literally blows more black powder around so I am lucky I had mold control spray with me so I sprayed the areas around it and delicately cleaned it all up.
I then scrubbed the entire floor and wiped everything down and like an idgit forgot to take an after picture. Trust me, it looks much better but I still want to take some real strong stuff and go over it again on Sunday.
I really wish I knew where this came from, I’m thinking when I removed the tiles, spores were released and there may have been water from the sprayer in the affected area where conditions were right for it to grow like crazy into that slimy mess and then into that golf ball sized bag of yuck in less than a week.
Whatever the cause, I have cleaned that bathroom and plan on doing so again Sunday. No way this is going to happen again.
Next project is going to be replacing the bathroom floor, that should be interesting. Finding the time to do it will be as well, maybe while I’m there Sunday I’ll rip up the rest of the floor and see what there is to see.
Until next time have a great weekend everybody!
