How can I protect my bathroom from excess moisture?
Open your bathroom windows
The best way to get more air into your home is sometimes as simple as opening a window. This will venitlate a bathroom naturally to clear the steam out and remove heat, whatever temperature outside. Try and keep the bathroom door shut as much as possible to prevent the moisture spreading to other parts of your home.
Fit an extractor fan
An extractor fan can circulate the air in your bathroom to get rid of the warm moistness and replace it with fresh air. Extractor fans are a godsend for those who have bathooms without windows, but even in conjunction with a bathroom window, they can help ventilate your room.
Wipe down windows
When condensation builds on your windows to excessive levels, it's likely to drip and leave damp around the window frames. This is why it's paramount to make sure you wipe your windows down. It can save you a lot of effort in the future having to treat damp in your bathroom.
