The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Beth:
I recently had a mini-bathroom remodel and found out that it is an absolute must for a bathroom to have a ceiling fan and also to have a vent/register in the floor. My bathroom didn't have the vent/register; it did have a fan but I found out it was clogged so it wasn't doing anything. As a result my bathroom paint peeled and walls would mildew, particularly in the shower, but the paint peeled in the entire bathroom.
I now have both and problem solved. I'm sure this is common sense to some, but I didn't know any better and no handyman had ever mentioned it to me until this mini-remodel!
Many years ago we had a 100-year old Victorian home. The previous owners converted a closet into a bathroom and there wasn't ventilation available. However, they did add a ceiling fan. While it wasn't the best solution to keeping the bathroom dry, it did help considerably!
