A smelly bathroom is one of the most common things people complain about when staying in hotels or going to restaurants in Portugal.
If the problem is in your own home the effects are even worse because you have to live with it.
If that was not bad enough when visitors use the bathroom it can be very embarrassing.
There are 2 causes of a smelly bathroom if we suppose that you do indeed keeping it clean.
1, In about 20% of cases that we encounter the smell is caused by sewerage gas getting back into the bathroom. The good news is that this can be fixed for good for a couple of hundred Euros.
2, This accounts for the other 80% of cases. Humidity in the most common reason. Humidity caught in the bathroom either from normal bathroom use such as bathing and showers or leaking pipes. If the humidity in the air and the water on the surfaces is not got rid of quickly then you will deffinatly get a bad smell.
Why is this ? because water on its own has no smell and distilled water “steam” is even more pure than tap water !!!
What happens is – The water/moisture allows micro-organisms and moulds to grow. They love a warm, wet bathroom environment and it is their waste products and spores that produce the awful smell.
It is a very serious issue in fact The World Health Organization have prepared a paper on the problem. You can read it via this link.
