How to Reduce Moisture on Bathroom WallsBy: Danny Lipford
I have two vent fans in my bathroom; and after a long, steamy shower, I’m still getting water and stains on my walls. How can I fix this problem? -Phil
You can’t expect prolonged exposure to a room full of steam not to condense on your bathroom walls, so start by cutting back on the length of your shower and lower the water temperature. A bathroom vent fan isn’t designed to remove all steam in a matter of seconds; so you have a confined space that’s filling with steam faster than one, or even two, fans can pump it out.

Good luck with your project,
