Solving humidity and condensation problems in bathrooms

The bathroom is the place in the home that generates the most humidity. Every time someone takes a shower the steam condenses on the walls, ceiling, towels ... Also bathrooms and lavatories generally do not have large windows which would allow proper ventilation of the room. Humidity accumulates on all the materials in the room and over time causes the materials to age prematurely, causes paint to peel on the walls, rusts metal objects ... making the bathroom look very unsanitary.

Weekly cleaning of the bathroom is a good way to put a stop to mildew on showers doors, curtains and tile grout. The use of an extractor helps to remove a large portion of the steam produced by the hot water to the exterior. Using a mid- or large-sized dehumidifier keeps the level of humidity from being very high and helps to preserve the condition of materials. It is also a good idea to paint the ceiling with humidity resistant paint. This type of paint acts as a fungicide and prevents the appearance of mildew. Using these simple bits of advice you can keep your bathroom free of humidity and much fresher.
