Moisture buildup problem in bathroom
 
2 Attachment(s)

Hi, before i remodeled my bathroom i was getting mold or mildew on the ceiling because of all the moisture. I do have a 70 cfm exhaust and the room is about 65 sq. ft. with 8 ft. ceiling. However i did use very cheap paint in the bathroom 10 yrs. ago.
Just finished completely remodeling the bathroom with new bath and surround, Behr bath paint.
There are 4 of us taking showers in there and when we're done the ceiling is soaking wet, along with the upper part of the walls. Is this normal? I checked the exhaust fan by putting a piece of paper up to it and it does suck it in. I am attaching a picture, check it out and tell me what you guys recommend. My mom did buy those 2 x 2 plastic squares from Lowes for $20/pc. and glued them to her ceiling. I just don't know if i'm freaking out for nothing, but i know i don't want the mold on the ceiling again. But now i do have bath paint on the ceiling and walls. Any suggestions please! pic attached
