dehumidifier 200x300 Do You Need a Dehumidifier?A dehumidifier is designed to remove moisture from a space.  Moisture in your home can lead to structural problems and serious health issues if not eliminated. First, examine your home for signs of moisture.  The most notable signs of excess humidity are rotting walls, peeling wallpaper, blistering paint, musty smell, condensation on windows, wet stains on walls or ceilings, and an overall stuffy feeling in your home.

There are also other signs of humidity that require a little more investigation.  Are your floors creaky or cabinets and windows sticky? If you answered yes then your home could have a moisture problem that requires a dehumidifier.  Moisture will cause wood to swell and therefore push apart joints, loosen screws and nails, and leave your home structurally unsound.

A dehumidifier may also keep you and your family healthy.  Moisture in your home leads to the growth of dust mites, fungus, and molds.  Even if you are not susceptible to allergies, mold can cause serious health issues.  A damp surface creates the perfect habitat for an airborne spore, and once mold begins to grow in your home it is very difficult to remove.

Eliminating the moisture in your home can also discourage insects from moving in.  Insects such as roaches, spiders, silverfish, and centipedes thrive in a moist environment.  Eliminating the moisture will also eliminate these unwanted guests.

Do not wait until the moisture in your home has created serious structural or health issues before you eliminate it.  The purchase of a dehumidifier may save you time and money.
