Damp bathrooms can cause mold and mildew to grow, which can trigger severe allergies. Fortunately, you can control the dampness by following a few simple steps. First, to protect your bathroom from accumulating condensation, make sure you have an effective exhaust fan that is wired independently of any light switches.
Modern units are actually able to detect moisture in the air, and can be programmed to automatically remove it.
Another way to control dampness is to ensure your toilet tanks don’t run after flushing and have insulated linings to prevent sweating. You can also install insulating wrap on supply pipes. Follow a simple routine of wiping down surfaces (including shower walls) after use as this can be an effective way to prevent saturating the air with moisture. Finally, when renovating, be sure to use water-resistant insulation and wallboard.
