While outdoor hot tubs can be a popular item, some people prefer the convenience and privacy of creating a hot tub experience indoors.
Here are some things to think about if you decide to bring the installation of your hot tub inside:
Consider the ventilation—A lot of seam arises from hot tubs as you know and if the indoor space is not property ventilated, it can cause mold and mildew to form and grow within the space. It’s a good idea to consult a professional to be sure you have the proper number of vents installed as well as a fan if needed.
Slippery surfaces—The steam and just the act of stepping out of the tub onto the floor can create a hazard and safety issue. Be sure to take care in determining what type of flooring you will have around your tub. Also, after each use, ensure that the flooring is dry so as not to increase the chances of slipping later as well as mold or mildew growth.
Speaking of mold and mildew—It’s important to stay on top of the potential for mold and mildew growth as, not only does it impact the structure of your room (moisture in the drywall can create wall issues) it also has an impact on your health. Breathing in bacteria can pose some health issues including lung problems. Consult a professional and consider installing moisture-proof drywall and mildew-resistant primer and paint.
