Quick Tip of the Week

Posted Apr 22, 2008

Air contains moisture. This is a fact of life, and an important one at that. But how much water is in the air depends on the air temperature, and when there is too much moisture in the air, condensation forms. This water can cause large amounts of damage to your home, particularly in cellars and bathrooms. Black mold and swollen wood fittings are indicators that a room contains too much moisture.

If you are experiencing these problems, look into purchasing a ventilating fan or dehumidifier, both of which will reduce the amount of moisture in the air. Alternatively, for minor problems we recommend opening windows and clearing the air in any room at least once a day. Moisture in the air is good and natural, but like all good things it can mean trouble when found in large quantities.
