Improving your home atmosphere isn’t just about aesthetics. It also includes making sure that the things invisible to the naked eye, like air quality and humidity, are at their best to ensure health and safety for you and your family. Enter dehumidifiers.
What are dehumidifiers for?
If you remember elementary science class, the water cycle (evaporation, condensation, and precipitation) occurs not just outdoors but everywhere moisture is present. In closed spaces like our houses, high amounts of water vapour can fill the air, making it harder to breathe. This is highly dangerous especially if someone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma.
Humid air also attracts allergens such as pollen, mould, and dust mites if not handled properly. Dehumidifiers take out or minimise the water vapour in the air to avoid these issues. Plus, by preventing mould and dust build-up, dehumidifiers can also help deal with common pests like roaches, mites, and slugs that are often drawn in by these organic matters.
