“Dehumidification is the most effective tool for protecting the health of your home.”
At A Healthy Home, Your Health is our Top Priority and Dehumidification is essential for protecting the health of your home & family.
WHAT IS DEHUMIDIFICATION?
Simply put, dehumidifiers regulate indoor humidity by removing moisture from the air. This creates a healthy home environment that is comfortable to you but inhospitable to mold, dust mites, and other allergens.
Due to the stack effect, 50% percent of the air in the upper areas of your home comes from the basement or crawl space. Both contain high levels of moisture that contribute to musty odors (MVOCs), mold, bacteria, and dust mites. Damp air in these areas can damage the structure of the home and compromise air quality. According to the EPA controlling humidity inside the home is essential for comfort, reduced health risks, and property protection. The Environmental Protection Agency, American Lung Association, and American Medical Association, all recommend installing a dehumidifier in the basement and crawl space to regulate humidity levels at 59% or lower in your home.
THE HEALTH RISK OF HIGH HUMIDITY
Mold is the most common health risk associated with high humidity in a home. This resilient fungus feeds on organic matter and reproduces rapidly in humid environments. Besides causing allergies, mold produces harmful chemicals such as MVOCs (Microbial Volatile Organic Compounds) and mycotoxins.
Health hazards related to mold include coughing, wheezing, running eyes/nose, skin rashes, muscular aches, loss of appetite, inability to concentrate, and fatigue.
Research has found that common household dust mites, which thrive in more humid environments, may be a factor in as many as 80% of asthmas, hay fevers and other allergic ailments.
Exposure to house dust containing mite allergens typically causes sneezing, nasal stuffiness, runny nose and itchy/watery eyes, but can also trigger asthma attacks.
