5 Reasons Why You Need a New Bathroom Fan

Do you or your kids forget to turn on the fan when showering? I’m guilty of this myself, sometimes! Did you know, some of the damages happening in your bathroom could be due to high humidity levels?

1. Wet Patches and Water Stains

You may notice damage to the paint or wallpaper in your bathroom. Some people come to us thinking it is due to aging and that it is just time to repaint. This is a simple, temporary fix but water patches and stains on your ceiling and walls will continue to form if humidity levels remain uncontrolled.

2. Decay to Fixtures and Fittings

Excessive condensation can cause decay to your fixtures and fittings. Particularly, wooden or organic parts.

3. Insulation 

Constant saturation in the air can cause problems with the building insulation, making it less effective.

4. Mildew

Mildew moves fast and can quickly build up around the windows.

5. Mould

More important than unsightly damages to your bathroom, those who use it are at risk. Mould can build up on your walks and tiles, ceiling and around your sink so be on the lookout! Mould is a very unhealthy substance and no one, at any age, should be exposed to it.
