Located just 20 km west of downtown Ottawa, Kanata is among the largest suburbs of the city, with a population of 80,781 (2011), which continues to grow rapidly. In fact, before becoming a part of Ottawa in 2001, Kanata was considered one of the fastest growing cities in all of Canada. It also plays an important role in Canada's hi-tech industry.
It depends on your bathtub. Mold doesn't grow on materials like ceramic, porcelain and metal. However, certain plastics (like acrylic) are susceptible to mold. Given that acrylic tubs are quite common in modern-day bathrooms, you may indeed be dealing with mold.
That said, the red film you're referring to is in all likelihood mildew. If this is the only thing you see on your tub, then you are okay. However, if you start noticing black spots or darker discoloration on or around your tub, you're probably dealing with black mold.
If in doubt, give us a call and we'll have one of our certified inspectors take a look.
