Tips to Control the Humidity in Your Home

8/27/2019 (Permalink)

Something as simple as humidity in your home can cause a multitude of problems including mold, dust mites, and structural damage. This can lead to not only structural damage to your home, but also health problems. You can help control the humidity in your home by taking the following steps:

  • Install exhaust fans in high moisture areas, such as the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room. Be sure to install exhaust fans with the vent going outside, not inside your home.
  • Keep the number of plants that you have in your home to a minimum. Plants produce moisture and be mindful of over watering any houseplants, this too can increase the amount of moisture in the air.

Ventilation is essential to reducing the amount of indoor humidity. In the event that you are to have mold or structural damage, SERVPRO of Mason City can help.
