When in building we speak of wet areas we refer to kitchen and bathrooms, two spaces where ventilation is extremely important to avoid bad odors, accumulation of gases, humidity and smoke since they are the main generators of a stale environment and sometimes causes of health problems.
On many occasions, the bathrooms do not have windows or openings for natural ventilation, especially in housing blocks, back rooms, offices and factories. Bathroom ventilation is essential to avoid the appearance of fungus due to humidity and its condensation. An excess of humidity can not only be harmful to health but even to the bathroom itself, which will need maintenance after a short time.
The only way to avoid humidity problems in bathrooms is to properly renew the air and this implies installing a small extraction fan for bathrooms or toilets.
Bathroom extractors are electric fans that will be responsible for extracting (and not supplying) stale air from the wall (wall fans) or ceiling, depending on where they are installed. Sometimes bathroom extractors can also be installed in the windows, a way of renewing the air with less energy loss since the backdraught dampers installed in our fans to prevent the entry of outside air, as well as odors from other spaces and even objects from outside.
To achieve good air quality throughout the home, the best thing to do is mounting a dual-flow ventilation system that will extract air in wet areas such as kitchens and bathrooms, and provide new and filtered air in dry areas such as bedrooms, lounges and living rooms.
Within the guidelines to be taken into account for good ventilation in closed spaces to avoid the spread of viruses such as covid-19, in addition to cleaning the air using air purifiers with HEPA H14 filters, it is essential to renew it by providing new air and this is precisely what bathroom and kitchen extractors do.
