Even Toilets Can Sweat

Do you have a toilet in your home that sweats? If so, you’re not alone. A sweating toilet is a common problem and one that can cause some big headaches if left untreated.

In this blog, we will discuss the causes of bathroom humidity and how it can lead to a sweaty toilet. We will also provide some tips on how to fix the problem for good!

Why Do Toilets Sweat?

When you notice your toilet sweating, it's not because it's nervous. So, why is your toilet wet?

The answer has to do with the relative humidity in your bathroom. Relative humidity is the amount of water vapor present in the air, compared to how much water vapor the air can actually hold.

The warmer the air is, the more water vapor it can hold. And when the relative humidity is high, that means there's a lot of moisture in the air. When there's a lot of moisture in the air, that moisture has to go somewhere. And one of the places it goes is to your toilet.

What You Can Do

So, if you want to stop your toilet from sweating, you need to lower the relative humidity in your bathroom. One way to do that is to use a dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers work by pulling moisture out of the air and collecting it in a tank.

Another way to lower the relative humidity in your bathroom is to add ventilation. You can do this by opening a window or running an exhaust fan. If you use a fan, make sure it's vented to the outside of your house. If it's not, all it's doing is recirculating the moist air in your home.

It is important to have proper ventilation in the bathroom to help reduce mold and mildew as well. Bathrooms are typically small and do not have a lot of air circulation, so it is important to take these extra measures, as well as installing an exhaust fan if you don’t have one already.
