Bathrooms, by their very nature, are damp places. Excess moisture in your bathroom can create the following problems:
- Peeling paint or wallpaper
- Rotting wood such as windowsills
- Curling floor tiles and/or damage to underlying flooring
- Condensation dripping from toilets, pipes or vents.
This means that it is also important to keep bathrooms as dry as possible. Of course, that’s not always easy, so here are some tips for moisture control in your bathroom:
- Use the exhaust fan any time the water is running, and leave it on for ten to fifteen minutes after a shower
- Keep the bathroom fan clean and in good working order
- If you have a window in your bathroom and it’s not too humid outside, open it to air out the room
- Cooler showers put less moisture in the air than hot showers (and also use less energy!)
- Immediately wipe up any standing water on the floor.
- Fix dripping faucets.
- Air out damp bath mats and towels
- Use DampRid Bathroom Moisture Absorber or other DampRid moisture control products
