Mold and Mildew in the bathroom. A very common problem in many homes. Poor circulation of air will add to the mold problem.

Here is an example of what can happen to an ordinary bathroom that does not have regular vent use, and circulation of air within the home. The tenants take a shower, run the fan while showering, turn it off when done. All that moisture in the warm air while showering lingers and is the breeding ground for mold and mildew.
The area can be cleaned up, but the condition will return without changing the air flow. Open some windows, make sure the vent fan is working correctly, and leave the bathroom door open. All of these things will increase the amount of fresh air, and reduce the problem in the future.
