The Importance of Bathroom Exhaust Fans in Your Home
Posted on June 28th, 2018 by Blue Mountain
The area in your home that uses the most water? Your bathroom. Think about it: Flushing your toilet, washing your hands, cleaning your face, taking a shower — it all adds up.
And all that moisture can lead to a tremendous amount of damage in your bathroom. One way to control the moisture is by having an exhaust fan. Exhaust fans help regulate humidity levels, preventing mold, mildew, and other bacteria.
3 Benefits of a Bathroom Exhaust Fan
1. Odor Control – Exhaust fans quickly draw out any unpleasant smells and let’s face it, besides the kitchen, your bathroom is bound to smell a little.
2. Reduce Humidity Levels – Reducing the humidity levels in your bathroom can help prevent mold and mildew which is extremely harmful to your health. It also helps prevent paint or wallpaper from peeling or warping.
3. Manage Fumes – Homeowners like a quick fix. Sure, store-bought cleaners make things spotless, but they don’t have the best ingredients and breathing in those fumes is dangerous — exhaust fans help draw out these fumes.
