In order to keep a bathroom from becoming humid and smelly after a shower or using the toilet, it is important to have good ventilation in this area. Apparently a good working exhaust fan will do the trick if it is correctly installed, but it is important to make sure that the fan is set to turn off at least a good twenty minutes after one is done showering or bathing, or else you will only help with the smell problem, and not with the humidity problem.
- The two things plumbing fixtures produce on a daily basis are increased humidity and odor. The humidity comes from showers, bathtubs and whirlpool tubs
- The interesting fact is that the plumbing contractor neither designs nor installs the exhaust fan. Yet the plumbing contractor is often blamed
- Perhaps the plumbing contractor should be more involved in making sure a bathroom ventilation system is properly designed and installed
