A new exhaust fan and air vent in the bathroom

Do you have kids? Do you have teenagers? Do you know that moment in life when you realize that your little babies are now big, stinky adults? I have three teenage girls, between the ages of 13 and 17, and I have to say it was both a shock and a major adjustment for me. Little girls are sugar and spice and everything nice, but puberty changes all of that. I can only imagine how much worse it would be with teenage boys. It was right around this time I installed a new ventilation system in the main bathroom, mostly to combat that teenager stink. A new air vent and exhaust fan really did help quite a bit, the bathroom smelled fresher, and had less dampness and mildew in the corners. It did not remedy the problem, though, because the air vent and exhaust fan didn’t take the odors out of the towels, the throw rugs, and the bedding and clothes in the childrens rooms. There is a limit to the power of HVAC systems, and I learned that I would just have to get used to it for the next few years. Forced air ventilation can only take you so far, so I started encouraging the kids to leave their bedroom windows open more often, to get fresh air and natural ventilation into their end of the house. This is not a problem of them being dirty kids or not showering regularly, they are just at that time of life where everything stinks, so fresh air and natural ventilation is the best option.
