Why is there a fan in my bathroom?

Many guests wonder about the small fans that are running on low in their bathrooms. The fans actually serve an important function. Narragansett is a lovely beach town but often the air has a bit of moisture. It's not always felt as "humidity" but the moist air can make make it impossible for towels to dry and, even worse, encourages mildew. There is nothing Innkeeper Seely hates more than mildew. The fans increase air circulation and almost completely discourages mildew from setting up shop. This makes Innkeeper Seely and Mother Nature very happy as bleachy mildew cleaners are now rarely needed. That's what Works for me on Wednesdays and every other day of the week.

  1. Thanks for the tip! I grew up in a house with no vent fan, and honestly, we hardly ever use the one we have in our bathroom. As you can imagine, we have frequently had problems with mildew... especially during our St. Louis summers when humidity levels reach 80%+!

    I think we'll try the fan & see if it makes a difference.
