Humidity is so annoying: it makes you feel sticky, it gets everywhere, it causes mold, may damage your home’s structure, and affects your indoor air quality. This is why you need to do your best to keep it at bay in your house. For a few ideas on how to achieve this, continue reading this post!

How to Lower the Humidity Levels in Home

  1. Deal with any sources of standstill water. For example, cracks, leaky pipes, clogged drains and unkempt gutters can be adding to the moisture problem, so repair them.
  2. You can also help keep the humidity out of your home by having its roof, walls, windows, basement and more properly insulated and waterproofed. 
  3. Try to allow as much ventilation in your home as possible. You can do this by turning on your fans, or opening windows and doors to allow air to circulate through your home.
  4. Humidity loves to build up in small unventilated places such as drawers, closets, and cabinets. Place small mesh balls of uncooked rice in them to absorb the moisture.
  5. If you the high moisture levels are affecting your carpets, upholstery, or other fabrics, sprinkle baking soda on them. Let it sit for a bit and vacuum it and the humidity away.
  6. Be especially careful with those extra humid places in your house (for example, the bathroom and basement) to ward off any mold growth in them.
  7. Condensation is one of your biggest enemies in this situation. Avoid it as much as possible by limiting showers with extremely hot water, for example.
  8. Keeping everything dry is one of the best ways in which you’ll be able to lower the humidity in your home. For instance, pat your bathroom dry after you shower.
  9. If you want to ensure that moisture won’t be a problem in your home, invest in a dehumidifer. They can help you get rid of humidity and improve your home’s air quality.
