Control Moisture & Humidity In Your Home

Excess moisture can be harmful and damaging to your home and your health. Here are some tips on how you can reduce moisture in your home and prevent problems from occurring.

  • Promote air flow. Increase circulation and decrease humidity in rooms by using fans. Fans cool by removing moisture from the skin of people that are in a room.
  • Install exhaust fans. Cooking, showering and using other household appliances can add moisture to the air in your home. Make sure your kitchen and bathrooms are properly ventilated and remove moisture. Install exhaust fans if your home needs better ventilation.
  • Check for leaks. Humidity and moisture can come into the home in the way of leaks from exterior walls and surfaces. Check windows and doors for leaks and cracks. Get them repaired immediately.
