Why Humidity is Such a Problem
Living in Florida, we obviously experience more than our fair share of humidity. Don’t get us wrong; the weather here is mostly spectacular. But the humidity can get pretty oppressive at times. But it doesn’t just affect humans – it can also affect your home in ways you might not have previously considered.
For instance, when humidity levels are high day after day, and week after week, it can make your wooden floors start to bend, and make your paint start to peel. It can get so bad that it leads to stained walls due to too much moisture. Even worse, high humidity can lead to the accumulation of mold and mildew. When that happens, it can lead to potentially serious health problems.
But while it might seem to be a Herculean task to get rid of excess moisture in your home, it’s really not that difficult. Here are a few tips to consider.
- Find out the source of the moisture – You may have too much moisture in areas of your home that aren’t as well ventilated as others. These will typically include closets, bathrooms and the kitchen. Or, there could be an undetected leak somewhere in your plumbing. Innovative Construction Solutions has sophisticated technology that can find the source of a plumbing leak. We can do it without the need for old-fashioned, destructive leak detection methods such as tearing out walls.
- Don’t forget about your walls and roof – Excess moisture can settle into roofing and walls, potentially causing extensive – and expensive – damage. We have tools that can “look,” so to speak, inside your walls and under your roof to spot the exact location where a leak is occurring.
- Check your ventilation – The better your ventilation, the better your home will be able to withstand the negative effects of humidity. Fans that move indoor air to the outside of your home will help keep your inside air healthy and fresh. We can analyze your home to show you weaknesses in your ventilation system, and then show you cost-effective ways to address those weaknesses.
Consider a Dehumidifier
Another way to address excess moisture is to purchase a dehumidifier. As the name implies, this is a piece of equipment that removes moisture and lowers humidity levels in the process. You can put a small one in your attic, or use a larger one for a bedroom. There are also whole-home humidifiers that are available.
