Exhaust Fan Cleaning
It’s very important to have an exhaust fan that’s vented to the outside in every bathroom in your home. Also its vital to run it whenever you shower or bathe and for 15-20 minutes afterward to remove excess moisture. If in turn moisture builds up, it can cause mold and mildew to form.
An average sized bathroom vent fan that’s used one hour a day will exhaust over 2,000,000 cubic feet of air a year. That is the equivalent of the air inside 1,000 homes.
In addition, as air is drawn through the fan, dust builds up on the grille cover and the fan motor over time. Cleaning the cover and motor housing every six months to a year will remove most of the accumulated dust.
Moisture in a bathroom can lead to peeling finishes, warped doors, and mold growth. In fact, the bathroom exhaust fans purpose is to control moisture and remove airborne pollutants.
