Eliminate dampness – Dehumidifier System
There is nothing worse than coming home to a damp feeling home. The muggy humid air is stifling and makes it difficult to breathe well. With extra humidity in the home, it makes you feel uncomfortable. Also, humid homes allow dust mites to breed. This wreaks havoc on your allergies. Dehumidifiers help reduce the humid air in your home so you can breathe better.
Mildew and Mold – BE GONE!
What happens when you have excess moisture in the air? Mold and mildew accumulate and this spells trouble for you. Research indicates exposure to mold and mildew can make you sick. Mold can cause mild symptoms such as a runny nose and sneezing to severe symptoms such as an asthma attack (for those with asthma). In addition, mold can irritate the skin causing a rash. With a whole-home dehumidifier, mold and mildew do not stand a chance.
Safeguards your home
Although you may not notice the consequences of added moisture in your home right away, over time the extra condensation adds up. What does this mean? When your furniture, walls, and woodwork is continually exposed to moisture, they will eventually become damaged. Warped wood, peeling paint, bowed flooring, these are all signs of prolonged exposure to dampness in the home. A dehumidifier is designed to absorb the moisture from the air, therefore, protecting your valuable home.
