I took a shower later the same afternoon plus was astonished with how good the lavatory smelled while I was toweling off
I couldn’t figure out for the life of myself and others why I had to wash our shower with bleach every other afternoon. There was a mildew smell coming back within fifths of every shower, even if it followed an intense cleaning session moments before I started shampooing our hair. I went through so much bleach cleaner in 1 month that I started developing allergy concerns with the chlorine smell in our house. I talked to people at the local hardware store, however few had any definite ideas on how to service the issue. It took a associate of mine who works in residential Heating plus A/C to pose a possible explanation for our problem. He asked myself and others what the air flow is care about to our lavatory from our central a/c. When I told him that there is no Heating plus A/C vent in our lavatory, only a roof ventilation fan, he told myself and others to get a small dehumidifier for the lavatory. With only minimal air flow coming in through the open doorway, it wasn’t enough to keep the lavatory dry. If an indoor space sustains a certain level of moisture, mildew growth is almost unavoidable. At the same time, I was skeptical that a small dehumidifier would make much of a difference on the air quality in our lavatory. To our amazement, it dropped the humidity level from 69% to 45%. I took a shower later the same afternoon plus was astonished with how good the lavatory smelled while I was toweling off. If I can’t get constant flow of conditioned air coming from the central a/c, at least I can dry out the lavatory to achieve much of the same effect. I don’t mind if I have to spend money more on our electric bill to cover the cost of running a dehumidifier, it’s worth it to keep a sanitary lavatory.
