Factors affecting air quality in
Restrooms and Bathrooms

Restrooms and bathrooms can be significant contributors to unpleasant odors and harmful VOCs that can cause discomfort. This issue is not limited to residential spaces but also affects restrooms in public places such as malls, schools, and other institutions. It is crucial to monitor and control these pollutants to ensure a comfortable and healthy indoor environment for users.

ASHRAE recommends relative humidity (RH) values between 30 and 60%.
Microbial growth may be promoted by increased humidity.
Minimum exhaust rates for Public and Private washrooms as per ASHRAE:
Public: 50/70 (Exhaust Rate cfm/unit), Private: 25/50 (Exhaust Rate cfm/unit)

Poor ventilation, a lack of frequent maintenance and cleaning, and the buildup of mold and bacteria can all contribute
to poor air quality and other inconveniences such as unpleasant odors, moisture, and germ spread in restrooms and washrooms.
