My first floor bathroom exhaust fan does not vent to the outside and from what I can tell, it just empties into the space between floors. I don't know the extent of the damage, but I can tell some floor boards above the bathroom on the second floor are loose. Two questions: How can I vent this to the outside (nearest exterior wall is approx 12' away and there is limited access between the two floors)? Any way to secure the carpeted subfloor upstairs without pulling up the carpet...?

Thanks k2. What if I were to pull back the carpet, exposing the subfloor, replace any wood damaged by moisture from the unvented bathroom exhaust fan and run a duct to either the side of the house or to the roof of the first floor bedroom. This is a 1.5 story townhome. I was thinking I could just run the dryer exhaust ducting between the joists and cut a hole to one of those gravity exhaust plates (that's what the kitchen uses. Would it be better to approach it from above, through the wood subfloor (so I can replace an damaged wood and stop that SQUEAKING) or to try and go through the first floor ceiling?? Thanks for any advice.
