It’s the time of year that many people with old flats or houses dread – the damp time of year! The time of year when it takes, quite literally, days to dry clothes and you seem to spend your life chasing the mould away with a cloth and a bottle of watered down bleach.
Damp really is a nuisance. For a start it looks awful and can cause serious damage to walls and paintwork. But added to this is the fact that it can be quite harmful to your health and encourage a range of creepy crawlies to the house that you could really do without. Anyone with chest problems will notice that their breathing invariably gets worse in the damp weather, and sleeping in a damp room can be particularly dangerous for babies and toddlers who may actually develop chest problems as a result.
The good news is, there is something you can do about it, and while you may not be able to totally eradicate a damp problem, by investing in a good dehumidifier you can significantly improve the situation and make life a lot easier. Dehumidifiersuk.com stock a range of dehumidifiers suitable for all types of homes as well as commercial properties. You can view our Amcor dehumidifier range here where you’ll also find a wide selection from other quality manufacturers.
Dehumidifiers work by drawing the excess moisture from the air and regulating the level of humidity in the room. With most models you can set a level of humidity that you find comfortable and just leave the dehumidifier to do its work until the correct level has been reached. Most will only work efficiently in one room of the house, rather than for the house as a whole, so you will need to move your machine around if you have a problem in different rooms. The best place to put them is usually in a room that’s near to the bathroom or laundry room – wherever there is excess moisture in the air. If you don’t have a tumble dryer and use a clothes horse to dry your clothes in winter then you’ll find that they dry in half the time when you have a dehumidifier in the room. And if you like to enjoy a long, hot bath in the winter months, but don’t like opening the window when it’s chilly then a dehumidifier will prevent condensation building up on the bathroom walls which can cause mould to grow.
All in all, one of these clever machines is a great investment and well worth considering if you have a damp problem. Find home and commercial dehumidifiers with dehumidifersuk.com and look forward to a dryer, more pleasant atmosphere.
