Dehumidifiers & Why They Are Important
Humidity can be a problem in any environment. High humidity levels cause discomfort and are conducive to the growth of mold and mildew in your business or home. Dehumidifiers are not only able to create a comfortable living environment, but more importantly, they can create a healthy environment and are a necessary tool against germs and bacteria. If ignored, excess humidity can cause some of the following problems:
Dust Mites & Allergies
Dust mite populations increase in high humidity and can cause problems for those suffering from allergies. A whole house dehumidifier will lower the humidity and presence of dust mites so everyone can breathe comfortably throughout the entire home.
Condensation can form on windows and even on walls causing paint to blister and wallpaper to peel. This can happen in any room of the house, but bathrooms, laundry rooms and kitchens are the most common areas where this occurs. To prevent condensation from forming, run a portable dehumidifier after a shower, when doing laundry or while cooking. Portable dehumidifiers can be easily moved between rooms, so only one might be necessary.
Condensation can also form inside of electric items, such as computers and stereos, and cause irreparable damage. This can also be very dangerous and possibly cause a fire. If the humidity is high inside of a computer room or game room, consider placing a portable dehumidifier in there to protect electronics.
Rust & Warping
Metals within the high humidity environment will eventually begin to rust and wood will begin to warp. This can make it more difficult for doors to be open and closed, as the frames can warp and change shape. A residential dehumidifier can stop this from happening in the house and a small dehumidifier in the garage or shed can prevent tools and other supplies from rusting.
Millipedes & Other Pests
Certain insects, such as millipedes, are attracted to high moisture areas. A high humidity home can become a haven for these unwanted pests, especially in dark spaces. A crawl space or basement dehumidifier will make the environment inhospitable to these creatures and keep them from wanting to enter a home.
Mold, Mildew & Fungus
Musty smells will start to develop in moist environments, which could indicate the presence of mildew or mold. Mold, mildew and fungus thrive in high humidity spaces and are damaging to one’s health and home. If a room or basement has a musty smell, place a portable or crawl space dehumidifier inside to help. A whole house dehumidifier might be necessary if more than one room smells musty or contains any mildew. If mold is present, makes sure to kill and remove all of it. A dehumidifier will prevent more mold from growing, but it cannot make any existing mold disappear.
The ideal relative humidity level within a living environment is at around 50% or less. Dehumidifiers are designed to keep environments humidity-free and our dehumidifier models are more than equipped to handle any and all kinds of humidity-related problems.
