Bathrooms are one of the most humid rooms in a home. Moisture from a hot shower or bath is released which then mixes with the cold air and forms condensation on your windows, mirrors and any other cold surfaces in your bathroom.
Other than being a pain because you can’t see in the mirror after you’ve got out the shower, condensation can cause mould growth.
You will never be able to eliminate condensation completely, but just by using these three simple steps, you can help to reduce the build up of condensation in your bathroom.
3 ways to reduce condensation in your bathroom
- Turn on the extractor fan – This will help to get rid of steam created when running a hot bath or shower.
- Open the window – Keep the window open whilst having a bath or shower and 20 minutes after, allowing the air to clear from moisture.
- Wipe down cold surfaces after a shower or bath – This will remove any excess moisture that has settled on cold surfaces.
