Case Study

Professional testing confirmed active mold in the basement and second floor of this Little Compton home. Jim Paradise assessed the situation and developed a plan to mitigate the problem. Read the entire story…

Dehumidifiers are critical for households with very old people or very young children, or for families with a history of allergies or asthma. In their first two years of life, children spend a lot of time on the floor or rug. If you have a 10-year-old rug, it likely has a host of dust mites that thrive in high humidity. And the more you are exposed to something to which you have a genetic tendency to be allergic, the more likely you are to become allergic to it, whether it is mold, bacteria or dust mites.

According to Partnerships for Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH), filtering and dehumidifying fresh air before it is delivered to the living area of the home may reduce the potential for triggering or aggravating allergies and respiratory ailments.


Homeowner property policies do not cover mold caused by water from excessive humidity, leaks, condensation or flooding, as it is considered maintenance for the property owner, like termite or mildew prevention, according to the Insurance Information Institute.

 

Benefits of proper humidity levels:

COMFORT

People in the United States spend an average of 90% of their time indoors. Addressing indoor air quality is very important to your overall quality of life.

Most of us think high humidity occurs only during the summer months, but in fact, the most important times of the year to address humidity issues are in the spring and fall when temperatures are moderate (air conditioning is not needed) and outdoor humidity levels are high.

HEALTH

Health problems associated with poor indoor air quality include eye irritation, allergies, headaches and respiratory problems, such as asthma. These problems can be directly related to the presence of mold, high volatile organic compound (VOC) levels and dust mite infestation.

PROPERTY PROTECTION

Maintaining proper humidity levels is one of the most important steps in protecting a home and its contents.  Excess moisture in the home can cause damage to wood floors, furniture, artwork, electronics, and even the overall structure of the home. It can also provide a breeding ground for cockroaches, termites, and other damaging pests.

GREEN LIVING

A “green” home by definition uses less energy, less water, fewer natural resources and offers better indoor air quality. While building practices have improved over the last few decades, the results have lead to tighter homes and poor indoor air quality. Airtight and well-insulated building construction restricts air infiltration from the outside, which allows pollutants and moisture levels to accumulate inside.
