Summer in Jacksonville, FL, is hot and humid. An increase in humidity poses daily threats to your health and brings you discomfort. A dehumidifier can eliminate these threats through the following methods.
Stop Allergens From Thriving
Humidity levels of more than 50% are ideal for allergens to thrive. Allergens such as dust mites cannot survive in a dry environment. A dehumidifier maintains the humidity of your home at 40%, which keeps allergens from growing and spreading.
The crawl space in your house can have higher humidity than the rest of your home. You might find dust mites in this spot. A dehumidifier will purify this area and keep it clean from allergens.
Prevent Asthma Attacks
Asthma attacks can be triggered by dust mites, cleaning products and residue from house remodeling. Dehumidifiers are beneficial in preventing asthma attacks since they eliminate these triggers.
Effective elimination of these triggers is more efficient when you use air purifiers and a ventilation system.
Remove Dampness in Your Home
There are times when you feel a gush of cold air even when windows are closed and the AC unit isn’t on. The leading cause of this feeling is damp air in your home.
Everything reacts to high humidity levels. A dehumidifier removes the dampness from the air and keeps your home dry, keeping all objects safe from rust.
Finally, inhaling odors from microbial growth can result in lung and intestine infections. With a dehumidifier, you’ll reduce the rotting and musty smells in your house. The dehumidifier will remove moisture that encourages the growth of microbial, preventing odors.
