1. Natural ventilation, a simple solution against condensationAdepts of long baths or supporters of timed showers, we have all noticed: hot water vapor, on contact with a cold surface, forms condensation. This is a very common phenomenon in humid rooms such as the bathroom. How to limit its appearance without having to give up our favorite moment of relaxation? The first solution, if you can, is to ventilate your bathroom to remove moisture after each shower or bath. A room that is too humid is the ideal place for bad odors to settle and for mold to form, which we absolutely want to avoid. To keep the environment healthy, be sure to ventilate your humid rooms for at least 15 minutes a day. Don't have a window in your bathroom? Use the other rooms to create drafts throughout your home. When you ventilate them, just remember to open the bathroom door to circulate the air. Very practical in summer, you will however avoid ventilating your rooms too much in winter, at the risk of ending up with an excessive heating bill. In this case, you will favor small jobs that will allow you, on a daily basis, to reduce the humidity level of your home. This will prove to be much cheaper in the medium and long term.

© Dea Vita The seals of our bathtub or our shower tray are essential to guarantee their good sealing. To prevent mold from settling in these areas, remember to check that they are in good condition and remake them if this is not the case. Damaged joints allow water to pass through and can cause moisture problems.
