This is the One Most Important Thing You Need in a Dehumidifier!
Did you know that high humidity can lead to serious medical conditions and can cause deadly diseases? If you are living in Singapore, you are already suffering from the dangerous effects of humidity.
With climate change, the world is becoming hotter, and this makes the air more humid. In Singapore, the humidity level has already reached 100%.
This is why getting a dehumidifier is essential now more than ever but before rushing to the store, you need to know what the most important thing is you need in a dehumidifier!
The most important thing to consider in buying a dehumidifier
If you are looking for a dehumidifier, look for a dehumidifier that is strong enough to lower humidity down to 50%, otherwise, it would be pointless in getting one. A humidity of 70% is already harmful to people and the ideal humidity is between 30% to 50%. If you got a dehumidifier that can’t lower your humidity down to the ideal levels, you got a bad deal.
Dehumidifiers are designed to lower humidity by sucking in humid air and extracting moisture from it. The extracted moisture is condensed into water and is collected in a water tank. Dehumidifiers will then release drier and cooler air. This makes the air less humid.
Aside from causing health problems to us, a humidity level of 70% causes a more frightening and alarming problem…mould.
The dangers of mould!
When you’re in a tropical country like Singapore, most likely there is mould in your house. If there’s a musty smell in your home, mould has already spread in damp areas of your house. If you see mould in certain areas in your home, the mould has already spread deep within the surface where the mould is visible. If this is happening in your home, you and your family are in danger.
Getting Rid of Mould
Mould can be removed by cleaning your mouldy areas with bleach, vinegar and other powerful cleaning solution, however, there is a great chance that mould will grow back. When an object becomes mouldy, mould has already spread within it. You can scrub and clean the surface moulds, but in just a few days, mould will just grow back.
By getting a dehumidifier, mould will starve and naturally die because of low indoor humidity. Keeping the humidity within the ideal range of 50% below will stop mould from growing back.
This is why one of the most important things you need to consider in getting a dehumidifier is it must be powerful enough to keep the humidity down below 50%.
