The purpose of a venting system in your bathroom is not just to make a lot of noise in a small room. The primary purpose for having an exhaust fan is to get rid of moisture in the bathroom. But, the fans help to control and eliminate bathroom odors. The also add to the safety of the home and its residents by reducing fumes from cleaning products to personal grooming items (like your sister’s hairspray).
If an unpleasant odor occurs in the bathroom, an exhaust fan can easily work to draw it out and eliminate it. Helping maintain the fresh smell of your home and creating a pleasant atmosphere for the next person who enters.
Excessive moisture can wreak havoc on bathroom walls by causing paint and wallpaper to peel.
Most importantly, the humidity can cause mold to accumulate. These spores can grow rapidly and can be difficult to get rid of. Therefore, it is crucial to have bathroom exhaust fans to prevent this from happening.
Fumes and Safety
Aggressive chemicals are usually used to clean bathrooms, which could cause many problems for the residents of the home if the small space isn’t properly ventilated. This is a major concern especially for small children, the elderly, or those with current lung conditions. Additionally, if the bathroom is already experiencing a mold problem, the fan will help to remove the buildup of spores in the air. This, in turn, will also help to slow down the mold’s growth rate as well as the amount you may be inhaling.
Ventilation in the bathroom is a necessity. Without proper ventilation, that spells trouble for your home as well as its inhabitants.
