Mold Tip – One Way To Control Mold In A Bathroom

If you’re constantly getting mold on your bathroom ceiling, even after cleaning it, you most likely have a ventilation issue. Bathroom exhaust fans are critical in controlling moisture levels while taking a shower. If you’re like most people, you probably turn the fan off immediately after stepping out of the shower or once the “fog” is gone from the mirror. What’s worse, is when the fan isn’t used at all. Just as bad, is when a fan isn’t properly sized, or when theres no fan period.

The first step to preventing mold from improper ventilation is, you guessed it, making sure you have proper ventilation. Using it correctly is the next step. Additionally, it’s recommended to have a humidity sensor in the bathroom to measure the moisture levels in the air. If you don’t have a sensor, run the fan while you shower as well as a few minutes after you shower. However, due to potential fire hazards, don’t run your fan for extended periods.
