It’s obvious when moisture becomes an issue in your home. You’ll notice your windows becoming foggy, a mildewy odor, and clammy skin. As moisture creeps it’s way into your home it can cause severe damage to the structure of your lovely home. However, even if there aren’t any signs of moisture in your home, it’s good to know ways to reduce the moisture within your home so that you keep your home a healthy and safe place for your entire family to enjoy.
Ventilation Is Key
One of the most important things you can do to keep the level of moisture in your home is to ventilate. In fact, kitchens and bathrooms are especially in need of ventilation. As the most moisture producing areas inside your home, these rooms require proper ventilation for humidity to not cause problems in your home. Proper ventilation is easy in a bathroom when vent fans are installed. Keeping vent fans turned on when excess moisture is present is a great way to quickly reduce it.
Place Houseplants Outside
Even for just a temporary period, houseplants can be detrimental in a home that is suffering from excess moisture. In fact, plants are known to release moisture vapor into the air. In turn, the moisture within your home is growing at a higher rate when house plants are present. This means that it is ideal to place them outside during those times when moisture is at an all time high. Furthermore, making sure not to overwater any houseplants is a necessary part of keeping moisture levels low.
Invest In A Dehumidifier
In terms of long-lasting humidity level control, a dehumidifier is a great solution. In fact, dehumidifiers are often placed in basements because they are dark places that get very minimal sunlight or warmth. Working best in closed spaces, dehumidifiers can ensure proper circulation of air, which allows humidity to be reduced quickly and regularly.
