I've been looking for info on showering/bathing in relation to sweating and whether it's sanitary or not. I can only seem to find articles that basically say "yeah, you need to shower cause you'll smell" but can't find anything that confirms whether or not it's actually sanitary or not e.g. infections. What do ya'll think/know? [more inside]

I have to replace a rotted out bathroom window by the shower, but I'm pretty confident that there's a bad mold problem in the shower wall beneath the window. Who should the first call be made to to resolve this? [more inside]

My bathroom has black mold growing at the top of the wall/edge ofthe ceiling.
The wall is white paint over drywall, and the paint has been blistering and revealing thick black mold under the paint/ on top of the dry wall. This area of my bathroom sometimes leaks due to another leaky bathroom being located rght above my bathroom.
1. How quickly do I need to take action
2. Can I resolve this myself, safely
3. If I clean it, what chemicals do I use
4. If I clean it, what safety gear do I need (breathing mask, gloves, etc)
5. If I clean it, what are my health risks and can they be easily treated with antibiotics/quick doctors visti?
6. Should I burn the house down and run right now?

My huge fancy stone-tile shower is growing mold like crazy. What can I use to clean this up that won't hurt the septic tank? [more inside]

For you home improvement types - we moved into our first house last July, and since then I've been battling some mold in the shower. It's not bad, but despite my attempts to banish it, the critters keep coming back - right at the seam where the shower wall meets the tub.
Will simply recaulking the seam fix it, or will it eventually come back through the new caulk as well? Any, ahem, natural remedies for ridding our shower of the stuff?
