HomeBlogWhat Can I Do For Moisture Control?

No matter the season, moisture control can be a common issue for many homeowners. You don’t want the air to be too dry, but you don’t want to create mold within your home either. Moisture control is a way to strike a balance between the two. You can use air conditioning, ventilation, dehumidifiers, or humidifiers to create this balance. The goal is to create the healthiest space possible.

What Can I Do For Moisture Control?

Too much or too little humidity causes health issues like coughing, sneezing, headaches, allergies, and asthma. In addition, you may notice water stains, condensation on your windows, mold, mildew, or warped furniture in your home. These are signs that you have moisture control issues.

Indoor air quality monitors can help you determine where your home sits on the indoor humidity scale. Ideally, it should be somewhere between 40-60%. Above or below this range can be a problem. Our team at Nixon Cleaning and Restoration LLC can come to your home to check your humidity levels.

Fixing your moisture issues can boil down to a few different things. If there is a leak causing water to pool, the leak needs to be fixed and the water cleaned up. If your exhaust fan isn’t doing the trick, have it checked to ensure it is working properly. Double-check that your clothes dryer is properly venting outside. If not, it can fill your laundry room with humid air. While plants are usually good for your air quality, too many can have the opposite effect. Pare down on how many you keep in your home for maximum moisture control.
