You know moisture or dampness is dangerous to the structure of your home. The wetness causes issues like wood rot, mold growth and a nasty mildew odor. It is a dangerous situation and can actually increase the risk of potentially toxic mold forcing you out of your home. It is imperative you save protect your home from excess moisture. One easy and inexpensive way you can help cut down on the moisture in your home is by ensuring you have working bath fans in each bathroom in your home. A Glendale electrician, like those at H Electric, will explain the importance of bath fans.
Any bathroom that has a shower and/or bathtub needs a fan to pull out the excess moisture that collects when a hot shower or bath is being taken. You have probably seen the steam in the bathroom after you or somebody else has taken a hot shower. You can feel the moisture in the air and in some cases you can visibly see it on the countertops, faucet and even the walls. This condensation seeps through the walls, floor and ceiling and creates a perfect environment for mold growth.
Instead of allowing this moisture to collect and damage the structure of your home, you can opt to have a bath fan installed by an electrician. Glendale homeowners will find the fans are extremely affordable and there are many different styles to choose from. You can opt to replace the existing light fixture in your bathroom with a fan/light combo. This is the quickest way to go and requires little. These fans often have heaters as well and can heat the bathroom while effectively removing the moisture from the room.
