Ensure good washroom hygiene with proper washroom ventilation

The most common and noticeable sign of poor washroom ventilation is bad odours lingering in the washrooms, however, less noticed but equally likely is excessive condensation which will promote the growth of bacteria and mould around the windows, on the walls in any tile grout and corners where fixtures and fittings meet walls.

Washroom ventilation is even more important if showering or bathing facilities are installed within the commercial washroom as these facilities have high humidity as they emit steam and large volumes of water during use which will exacerbate any issues with the existing washroom ventilation.

Excessive condensation without washroom ventilation will also accelerate the wear on commercial washroom fixtures and fittings, if you have any kind of laminated wood furniture or paneling such as toilet cubicles and vanity units with the onset of damp the veneer may begin peeling off the wooden substrate. Water stains will also take hold on stainless steel and aluminium fixtures such as taps, shower valves, and hardware.

Washroom ventilation issues can be solved by installing a correctly specified and reliable washroom vent  fan, which will create a healthy hygienic washroom, draw out bad odour and moisture in the air and prolong the life of the fixtures and fittings installed.

Washroom ventilation FAQs

What does ventilation mean?

Ventilation is the process of getting ‘fresh’ air into a room or building - this helps to remove any unpleasant odours and prevents the build up of mould and mildew due to moisture and bacteria in the air. 

Why is ventilation important?

Having adequate ventilation in a building is very important - particularly in washrooms that have showers or moist conditions as this can lead to mould, mildew and odours if clean air is not circulated through the room. Washroom ventilation greatly improves the quality of the air in the room so users can be comfortable and the facilities remain in their best condition. 

How to ventilate a room

Installing a washroom vent fan will ensure that your washroom has clean air circulating the room and is hygienic for those using your facilities.  

When to use a ventilation fan

A ventilation fan can be used in a commercial or domestic space to ensure clean air is circulated in an enclosed area in the building from outside. You should ensure that you have good quality washroom ventilation in bathrooms with showers and moist conditions to keep your facilities clean and well maintained.
