Moisture in our homes
Apart from Pollutions in our homes! (read more here), another kind of pollution in our homes is moisture. When we shower, wash and cook increases the moisture content in the room air. Even we ourselves give off moisture to the air when we breathe and through the skin. To have high humidity indoors can be harmful to health, and for the building. Excessive moisture can, for example lead to problems with the growth of dust mites, bacteria, fungi and mold. To air humidity should not be too high, you need either dehumidify it with a so-called dehumidifiers or wick away moisture to vent. The latter usually occurs with exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens that sucks out the air.
Did you know that:
- When we dry their laundry indoors, we can get moisture problems indoors?
- In total 10 liters of water per day is the amount of water a family of four supply the indoor air
It is therefore not obvious that the indoor Air we breathe in homes! (link here) is always clean and healthy even if it might be perceived as positive. But there are all prerequisites to improve it through to ventilate our buildings better.
