During our recent home inspection, Ashi-Certified Inspector, Ryan T. encountered an unexpected issue in the bathroom vent system - water was found sloshing inside the vent duct. This indicates a potential ventilation problem, which can lead to various concerns if left unaddressed.
Water in the bathroom vent can be caused by condensation or leaks, which may result from poor insulation, improper venting, or inadequate sealing. The presence of water in the vent duct can lead to mold growth, deterioration of the venting material, and decreased ventilation efficiency.
To rectify this issue, we recommend a thorough inspection by a qualified HVAC specialist or plumber. They can assess the ventilation system's integrity, identify the source of the water, and make the necessary repairs or adjustments.
Addressing the water issue promptly is crucial to prevent further damage and maintain a healthy indoor environment. Our priority is to ensure the safety and comfort of homeowners, and by identifying and resolving this bathroom vent concern, we aim to provide peace of mind and promote a well-maintained and functioning home.
