Do you struggle with damp or mould in your Highbridge property?
The importance of bathroom ventilation is important. If you have an electric shower, even more so! With Highbridge and Burnham on sea, being beside the sea, naturally has a more humid climate.
If you have black spots forming on the walls or ceiling of your bathroom there’s a likelihood you don’t have suitable ventilation and mould is forming.
Besides the look, it’s also very detrimental to your health. You could have an extractor fan that’s not working, is blocked, not strong enough or you might not have one at all. They do occasionally get blocked with dust and require a clean. They also fail to work with age.
“Timer fans” will activate when you turn the light on and stay on for a pre-programmed time after the light goes off. Some have “humidistats” that will sense humidity and remain on till the humidity reduces to an acceptable level. Others are completely manual and require a switch to operate.
Installing an extractor fan is a simple job with the need of either a clean hole made in the ceiling or the wall, with the ducting taking the moisture outside and suitable wiring by an Electrician.
You can get “mould resistant” paint now which will help to a certain degree, but ventilation is always the first action.
If you upgrade a bathroom extractor fan, or install a new one, wipe down the mould and repaint with mould resistant pain, it's likely the mould problem will disappear with it.
