Humidity and mites, prevention

Post 21 August 2012 In Effects of humidity and precautions

High levels of humidity may lead to the appearance of mites and mildew. These are harmful to your health and are especially bad for children and people with respiratory problems such as asthma. It has been proven that prolonged exposure to mildew and the spores mildew produces can lead to more severe problems for people in these groups. It is also more harmful to sleep in a room that is infected with mildew – a place where you are exposed for extended periods – than to go into a bathroom that is infected. Another cause of many home allergies is mites and their excrement. Mites feed on the tiny flakes of skin we and our pets shed.

In order to put an end to these problems, it is critical to control the level of humidity in the home and to clean consistently. The use of a dehumidifier helps to control mildew and mites. Ventilating rooms and the living room is essential for the replenishment of interior air in the dwelling. The cleaner the house is, the easier it is to prevent allergies and asthma from affecting people in the house. Humidity doesn’t appear suddenly, it is a slow process that creeps into our homes. It starts with small stains behind the furniture, in a corner, in the bathroom ... and before you know it the house begins to take on an abandoned feel. Prevention and detection of sources of humidity that may lead to all of these problems will help you to avoid the necessity of major repairs and will also help you to keep your house clean. A bit of daily maintenance can go a long way in caring for your home.
