Ventilation Fan

Moisture in a bathroom can lead to peeling finishes, warped doors, and even mold. Fans attract dirt like a magnet because of the static electricity they create. The dirt can encourage mold growth and restrict air movement, so it's important to properly maintain and keep the fixture clean.

Keep the bathroom exhaust fan on during and after showers to help control moisture and remove airborne odors and pollutants. Turn off the exhaust fan when the air is dry.

Cleaning and Proper Maintenance

While maintenance of bathroom exhaust fans is quite often overlooked, a proper maintenance schedule will ensure quiet and efficient operation, increase the fan's lifespan, improve indoor air quality, and keep the unit attractive in appearance.

Clean your Bathroom Fan:

  • once a month

  • if ventilation is poor

  • if moisture is difficult to control

  • if the fan is noisy
