Gnats in the bathroom, mold spots on the ceiling

addictedtorosesApril 21, 2006

We have a lot of gnats in the bathroom, especially all over the shower. There is a plastic surround in the shower, then about two and a half feet of textured wall, if that makes a difference.The wall part above the shower is where the gnats stay.

We also have alot of mold spots on the ceiling from the moisture of people taking showers. I use bleach on those every few weeks and it seems to help for a while, then they're back. Does anybody else have these issues? Any help?

you need a vent fan in there. too much moisture causes mold. get rid of the mold and the gnats will leave.

Here are some links you can check out that show how to install a bathroom fan.
Also included a couple of links to show the different types of fans that you can choose from.

Are you sure they are gnats? We moved into a house with drain flies. They look like small flies that don't fly well.
