Bathroom tiles and mould growth

Since tile is a very hard substance, I had never put in an effort in cleaning it. Since I paid no attention to cleaning and maintaining the bathroom tiles, mould started to grow on it. I noticed it only very late. At last, I had to completely change the bathroom tiles and installed a new set of ceramic tiles.

My question is what would be the cause of mould growth inside the bathroom? Will mould grow on the wall tile? How can we prevent the growth? I'm planning to fix a toilet paper caddy inside the bathroom. Will mould destroy the pappy caddy? How often should we clean the bathroom? Is there any special product or solution to clean the bathroom floor and wall tiles?

Organic matter (skin cells, dirt, all the stuff you wash off) and moisture are about the only things needed and your bathroom is full of it. Any ph neutral cleaner will do for routine cleaning. I can't really tell you how often you should clean your tile, but it needs maintenance and cleaning regularly just like every other part of your house....

Pretty wide question. That’s kind of like asking what the best car to buy is.

The easiest answer without knowing anything is to say “porcelain”.

But let’s start with some questions to help you pick something appropriate. Is the tile for the walls or floor? Is this a wet or dry application? Do you have a desire for natural stone or man-made tiles ?

I'm going to one up porcelain, and go with Dekton Cosentino "Ultra-subcompact".

Harder, flatter, denser, more impervious. Smallest size is 28"x28".
