Mold damaged bathroom
When your home is not dried out properly or if you do not have proper ventilation in your home, mold will grow. In the case of this homeowner, there was no vent fan in the bathroom. Damp can cause mold on walls and furniture and causewooden window frames to rot. It's also unhealthy. Condensationoccurs when moist air comes into contact with a colder surface like a wall, window, mirror etc. The most common walls affected by mold are ones exposed to excessive condensation, typically your bathroom and kitchen. Bathroom walls are often susceptible to black mold growth. Wet surfaces and steam from the shower can cause condensation to form if the bathroom is not properly ventilated.
