IF ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS APPEAR, YOU WILL NEED TO ACT SO THAT THE HUMIDITY DOES NOT TAKE OVER YOUR ENVIRONMENT.


    THE PROBLEMS WE HAVE WHEN THERE IS EXCESSIVE HUMIDITY IN DIFFERENT SPACES OF THE HOME, SINCE THE MITES WILL MAKE AN APPEARANCE, INCREASING ALLERGIC REACTIONS, AMONG OTHER PROBLEMS RELATED TO THE STRUCTURE OF THE HOME. FORTUNATELY, THERE ARE SOLUTIONS TO GET RID OF THESE DRAWBACKS.


     HOW TO AVOID HUMIDITY?



    • VENTILATION


    IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THE AIR CIRCULATES THROUGH THE DIFFERENT SPACES OF THE HOUSE. OPEN DOORS AND WINDOWS TO LET AIR IN AND PREVENT MOISTURE FROM SPREADING FURTHER AND WORSENING OUR QUALITY OF LIFE.


    • DEHUMIDIFIERS


    A DEHUMIDIFIER IS A DEVICE THAT IS USED TO REDUCE EXCESSIVE HUMIDITY IN A ROOM, THEREBY IMPROVING ITS HABITABILITY.



    • MODERATE HEATING


    HOT AIR IS EVEN MORE HUMID THAN COLD, SO WE MUST TRY NOT TO EXCEED 19 DEGREES CELSIUS IN ANY OF THE ROOMS IN OUR HOME, THUS AVOIDING MOISTURE PROBLEMS ON THE WALLS AND WALLS.



    • CLEANING


    WHEN THE HUMIDITY BEGINS TO WREAK HAVOC ON A WALL IN A ROOM OR IN A CLOSET, THE AFFECTED SURFACE MUST BE CLEANED WITH SOAP AND WATER, SO THAT THE HUMIDITY DOES NOT SPREAD. AFTER WASHING THE PROBLEM AREA, IT IS NECESSARY TO VENTILATE THE AREA WELL SO THAT IT DRIES AND MOISTURE DOES NOT APPEAR AGAIN. TO REPAIR A WALL WITH MOISTURE THAT IS VERY AFFECTED, WE WILL HAVE TO SCRAPE IT WELL WITH A SPATULA. IF THERE IS FUNGUS, WE WILL WASH THE WALL WITH A SOLUTION OF WATER AND CHLORINE (1 LITER OF CHLORINE AND 3 LITERS OF WATER), USING A BRUSH WITH NYLON BRISTLES UNTIL THE WALL IS COMPLETELY CLEANED. FINALLY, ONCE IT IS DRY, WE WILL APPLY PLASTER OR THE MATERIAL YOU WANT TO USE TO RESTORE THE FISSURES AND AFFECTED AREAS.



    • POTS WITH PLANTS. CLOTHESLINES.


    PLANTS BRIGHTEN AND DECORATE SOME ROOMS OF THE HOME, BUT IT MUST BE BORNE IN MIND THAT AN EXCESSIVE NUMBER WITHIN A HOME CAUSES A CONSIDERABLE INCREASE IN HUMIDITY. ALSO, YOU SHOULD AVOID DRYING CLOTHES INSIDE THE HOUSE.



    • WATERPROOF THE EXTERIOR WALLS


    SPECIALISTS IN THE FIELD, RECOMMEND WATERPROOFING THE EXTERIOR WALLS TO PREVENT MOISTURE FROM GETTING INSIDE THE HOUSE AND SPREADING OVER THE ENTIRE SURFACE. INSULATING IT WITH SUITABLE MATERIALS TO COMBAT HUMIDITY WILL BE THE MOST SUITABLE SOLUTION.



    MOISTURE IS A PROBLEM THAT WILL ALWAYS BE LATENT ON THE WALLS AND FLOORS OF ANY PROPERTY. TO COMBAT IT, YOU JUST HAVE TO BE VIGILANT TO DETECT IT AND TAKE THE NECESSARY MEASURES TO ELIMINATE IT.
