Installing Bathroom Venting

To reduce the risk of mould and mildew forming in your bathroom you need to ensure that it’s well ventilated. Whilst you can purchase special paints that are designed to cope with the high humidity of a bathroom and caulks that are resistant to mold and mildew; installing bathroom venting will also help to prevent your bathroom from becoming full of steam when you’re in it.

Using a Tub Drain Wrench

One tool that may be needed for remodeling your bathroom is a tub drain wrench. Using a tub drain wrench will allow the homeowners to remove the drain from the bathtub without expending a great deal of energy, breaking the drain, or marring the finish of the tub. As a recently new innovation, many homeowners may not be aware of the tool or how much work and effort it can eliminate.

Installing Bathroom Fans

If you’ve added a bathroom to your home or have condensation problems in an existing bathroom, installing a bathroom extractor fan to vent through an outside wall is an easy job for a DIY home enthusiast.

If the fan is to ventilate a shower stall it must be an in-line fan; the grill for the fan will be in the ceiling above the shower and a length of ducting then runs to the electrical components, otherwise a wall mounted fan will be quite adequate.
