When you live in the Southeast, you are no stranger to humidity. When humidity is in your home, it can be more than just uncomfortable. Too much moisture can lead to problems such as poor air quality, mold, mildew, increased pest invasions, structural damage, and wood rotting. If you are dealing with any of these problems, you should consider finding ways to improve your home’s moisture control. Here are a few suggestions:
- Use your air conditioner: Air conditioners don’t just cool a room; they also help reduce the amount of moisture in the air.
2. Turn on the fans: When you are cooking or showering, turn on the fans before and leave them on for a little while after. This can be a big help in reducing your indoor humidity.
3. Update your home’s insulation: In many cases, moisture control problems can be resolved with reliable insulation. Insulation such as polyurethane spray foam insulation creates a tight seal against moisture, even in hard-to-reach areas. It can be added to your attic, roof, or crawlspace.
4. Crawlspace encapsulation: A crawlspace encapsulation provides your crawlspace with an added layer of protection against water intrusions, as well as pest invasions.
