2. Daily activities such as bathing and cooking will produce more moisture at home, so ensure that there’s proper ventilation. Install an exhaust fan, windows, or air-conditioner to get rid of these excessive moisture. Before you renovate your toilet, consider how you can incorporate the exhaust fan into your interior design.
