REDUCING MOISTURE IN YOUR HOME

As temperatures begin to rise and alongside that, humidity levels, it is important to keep an eye on moisture levels in your home. Mold growth, pest infestations, and many other issues can arise from too much moisture. If you notice peeling paint, wet stains, mold smells, dark spots, or extra headaches occurring, you may have a moisture issue. Here are some ways to reduce that moisture in your home!

Update Ventilation

Make sure your ventilation system is working properly. You will want to check the rooms of your home that see the most moisture, like your bathroom and kitchen. If you don’t have vent fans in those rooms, you may want to consider installing them.

Invest in Dehumidifiers

If you have crawl space areas or rooms that will not allow for a vent fan, you should consider a dehumidifier. They often work best in areas that are sealed off like basements and attic crawl spaces

Check Your A/C Unit

Air conditioning units are very helpful in removing moisture and humidity alongside their cooling effects.

Install Weatherstripping, Caulking, or Insulation

If you live in a warmer environment with high humidity levels, weatherstripping can be helpful to make your home airtight to keep cool air inside and warm air outside. Caulking is similar to weatherstripping, but is used for surfaces that are constantly in contact with moisture, like showers and sinks. Insulation can help maintain the temperature of your home.
