How is drywall properly installed in a home, the walls and ceilings in kitchens living rooms and bedrooms? Is it just nailed to the studs or does it have to have back on board behind it? But as backerboard...


First, insulation is put in on exterior walls with specific R ratings, drywall is just screwed to studs then spackled.in bathrooms it's a little different. There's different options for material backboard that are waterproof. Some are fiberglass then are finished in resin sealant

Should i use the same drywall in the bathroom as in the rest of the house?


I recommend using MR (Moisture Resistant) drywall for the bathroom, and possibly for the basement if there are moisture issues. It is not much more expensive, and it can save you a big headache later

I have mold on a plaster wall - how do i fix mold on a wall with mold


Clean the wall with bleach and then paint the walls with anti-fungal paint.
If this room is a bathroom then install an exhaust fan to draw out the moisture when you take a shower.

Dehumid. runs and fan blows but no water in tank and never shuts off, 5yr. old maytag, only runs in summer


Several things can cause this problem. The leading one, is that the humidity extraction level is set to high. Lower it to 35%. One of the others, is a dirty or clogged air intake filter. Followed by obstructed air flow. You need to maintain at least a minimum of 12" clear air space around the unit. Also, most humidifiers struggle to operate correctly, if the ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 to 60 degrees F. This will also cause the fan to run a lot if the unit is set in continuous mode, rather than a timed mode. And finally, if any doors or windows are open, the unit will run forever. Make sure all doors and windows are closed.

Here's an in home test to see if it's working properly. Move the dehumidifier to the bathroom. Plug it in turn it ON and set the humidity/moisture extraction level to 35%. Turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Do Not turn the bathroom exhaust fan ON and close any windows that may be open. As you exit the bathroom, close the door. Wait 15 to 20 minutes before returning to the bathroom. Once you do, turn the shower OFF and allow the unit to run for 5 minutes more. Then check the bucket for any signs of water. If you find some, the unit is working as it should.

If you don't see any signs of water, the unit's compressor may need to be recharged with refrigerant.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Unit is not pulling any moisture. I took off the cover and removed all the lint buildup on the coils and filter and it still doesn't work.


So far, you've completed all the right tings, that I would have suggested. Now, take a look at the humidity setting on the dehumidifier. If it's set high (above 65%) there's not much chance that the unit will collect any humidity. It simply is just maintaining what it's set on. Lowering the setting to 35% will have a much better affect in removing the humidity/moisture.

There is an in home test you can do, to make sure the unit is working properly. Place the dehumidifier in the center of a bathroom and turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Turn the humidifier ON and Set the level at 35%. Do Not turn the bathroom's exhaust fan ON or leave a window open in the bathroom. As you exit the bathroom, close the door and wait 15 to 20 minutes before returning. After entering the bathroom, turn the shower OFF and allow the unit to run for 5 more minutes. Then check the bucket for signs of water. If you find any, the unit is working as it should. Also. the dehumidifier, when in operation should have a minimum of 2 feet of clear air space around it. The fans on many units run almost constantly, to recirculate the air and if any increase in humidity is sensed, the compressor will turn ON. This is particularly true, if you operate it in continuous mode, rather than a timed mode. Also, be sure that all exterior doors and windows are closed when the unit is in operation.

If after doing the in home test, the bucket did not show any signs of water, either the humidity sensor has failed and needs to be replaced or the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant. If you don't feel comfortable trying to repair the unit yourself, the following is a link that will help you locate an authorized LG Repair Center in your area.

Find out what the cost to repair the unit will be, before committing to it. As your model has been discontinued and it may be less expensive to but a new unit. Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

When I'm in my bathroom and showering the light turns red- what does this mean- Mold?. moisture?


The simple answer is moisture. If you have a bathroom exhaust fan, be sure to run it during and after you're showering. Typically, for a bathroom exhaust fan to reduce the moisture properly, it should remain ON for at least 15 minutes after your showering is complete,

Hope this helped to answer your question.

Does a bathroom require an exhaust fan even if it has a window


YES!!!! all a window does is change the vapor into liquid. What is needed is to get the moisture OUT OF THE building. I prefer Neutone 200 CFM unit, for get specs, they are all way too low. You are combating health issues if you allow moisture to remain....mold...

Also, the exhaust ducting needs to run downhill as it exits the building, or you risk moisture dripping from the fan...

Futher, put a 60 minute timer on the fan, and run 45 minutes (at least) for every shower....

Yellow Spots on Bathroom ceiling/walls after showers


You will have to paint over your new paint with a primer called BIN which will dry in about an hour. Then you can put your color coat on that. Problem solved.

I recently had a fan installed in a small bathroom (5x8). The mirror and windows still fog up even when I take a brief shower. A few minutes after the water stops running, the moisture does seem to clear...


On the assumption that your bathroom is 8 ft high, then the volume of air in the bathroom is 5x8x8 or 320 cu ft. Even if your fan is 80 cfm it would take 4 minutes to completely exchange the air. Leaving the door slightly ajar would assist.
To overcome a similar problem, I installed a second fan with a push button 10 minute timer so the fan runs for a few minutes after I leave the bathroom.

Bathroom extractor fan won't switch off


The fan most likely is turned on by the bathroom light switch. You likely have a defective fan motor.
