What is there to be said about bathroom odors? We all know them… But aside from the obvious ones, there are also various other causes such as dampness and other moisture problems.
The toilet is connected to a sewer pipe, and smells can back up from that connection as well. A clogged trap under the drain or toilet – which allows gases to back up into the bathroom, can be another cause of less-than-fresh smelling air.
Steam from showering and bathing can cause excess humidity. This can create the perfect conditions for moisture problems– with their musty smells.
TIP: If you have a bathroom fan – leave it running for at least ten minutes after your shower. The same for bathroom windows – crank them open and let the sunshine and fresh air in. Also, pull the shower curtain all the way closed after a shower. If these tips don’t significantly improve the air or smell . . . DampRid has a full line of odor removal products to help.
