After a shower or bath, water droplets form on the window, walls and mirror when the warm, damp air is cooled by these cold surfaces. There are several ways this can be dealt with:

Wipe Down Surfaces

Wiping down the surfaces with a towel after using the bathroom will help eliminate mould. It might seem like a pain to do this every time you’ve had a shower or bath, but it won’t take too long and it will prevent issues caused by condensation. The bathroom doesn’t have to be completely dry, but just enough so it’s not soaked.

Fit An Extractor Fan

An extractor fan can help control condensation. If you don’t fit an extractor fan, the condensation has nowhere to escape, which can lead to major issues. An extractor fan takes the moist air out of your bathroom and transports it outside.

 

Dehumidifier

A dehumidifier takes the moisture from the air and collects it as water. If you leave one running when using the bathroom it will result in a huge reduction in condensation.

 

Other Methods

  • Wipe up water around the basin and on the floors
  • Fix any leaks
  • Air out damp bath mats and towels
  • Take a slightly cooler shower
  • Turn up the thermostat a few degrees to warm the air in the bathroom. The warmer air will warm up cold surfaces and reduce condensation
  • You can also use a heated towel rail to keep your bathroom warmer – this helps to keep walls and windows above condensation temperature.
