High Humidity Harms Health
Have you ever entered your home in the summer and started to feel clammy or sticky? This could be an indication of high humidity levels in your home. A dehumidifier can improve your health and home comfort.
The Effects of Too Much Humidity
- Mold and mildew commonly reside on shower walls, windowsills, and other areas in the home where there are high moisture levels. Mildew can cause musty odors and damage to your home. It can also cause a variety of health issues, including breathing difficulties, asthma, cough, and sore throat.
- Dust mites, those microscopic organisms that invade your home, tend to aggravate allergy and asthma sufferers. They hibernate in bedding, curtains, carpet, furniture, and rugs. Removing excessive moisture from indoor air helps remove these pests.
- Moisture can be lethal to things such as books, clothes, and food products. A dehumidifier can protect these things from the effects of high water levels in your indoor air. Certain food products will last longer and will not develop unpleasant smells or go moldy.
A dehumidifier will help anyone with respiratory ailments breathe easier and generally improve overall health.
