What you can do against damp indoor air

Humid room air damages the substance of the room Walls and ceilings, also provides an unpleasant odor and must therefore be prevented already in the approach. You have to know that in the air there is always no visible water vapor, so that cold air can absorb less of it than warm air. With a small test, by putting out chilled water bottles for a while, or when you enter a heated room as a wearer of glasses, you can clearly see this effect.

Causes of moisture in living rooms

In new buildings for example, so that within the first three years after completion of the given building moisture must dry out. If areas such as the bathroom located directly in the house are poorly ventilated, this moisture accumulates and is difficult to get away. But also when cooking without appropriate exhaust air, when drying laundry and ourselves as humans and organisms caused water vapor - in sleep over eight hours, for example, a liter of it. This explains why, despite obvious aids, it is surprising that there is the problem of humidity.

For this reason, airing should be done several times a day, especially around the time of day and in all rooms with windows. We recommend a time between five and 20 minutes, always depending on the respective outside temperature. In the cold winter months, ventilation must be very frequent, as the resulting shock and shock ventilation ensures high air circulation, which ultimately prevents the ingress of moisture. Basically, fresh air is the best way to store heat, against old and damp air.

Take appropriate measures

If your home is also damp, you should act quickly in favor of your furniture and other features, otherwise there is a danger that the growth of mold will increase considerably.

  • Keep such rooms where ironing, cooking and showering are generally closed. Moisture disperses in all other rooms otherwise, which only increases the problem area.
  • Switch on the heating during the daytime in the bedrooms to absorb rising damp. The popular evaporators on radiators should be removed as far as possible, they only carry this circumstance on.
  • Back furniture at least ten inches away from an outer wall, as otherwise accumulates air and amplifies the effect described in exactly this place. If possible, equip the sockets with small air vents.

Dehumidification with granules

These situations were reason enough for research to look for alternatives to air dehumidification and then to find them in the form of granules , In addition to the prevention of mold, granules ensure that moldy odors disappear and at the same time have a high level of efficiency, which is roughly equivalent to 50 percent air regulation. An advantage of using Calcium Chloride is that dehumidification happens on its own and works well over a longer period of time.

You save power due to its self-regulating function, allowing you to locate these models in virtually any location and actively fighting mildew , which increases the indoor climate and significantly reduces the risk of infection or infection. In particular, people with asthmatic diseases or other respiratory diseases can sit up and take notice, because irritation caused by moist air is a thing of the past.

Place dehumidifiers made of granulate in basements or only moderately insulated living rooms and bathrooms, as there are mostly the causes and carry in other rooms. But even in garages worth a use, because in small corners there is often backlog of rainwater, which causes mold and expire stored things here with time. In addition, bad rumors are eliminated, which contributes to increasing the living environment. Make sure that even in your absence for a constant air circulation, which was previously mainly responsible for moisture in living rooms, as they simply lacked.
