Humidity can be very uncomfortable, leaving everything feeling damp and moist and when it comes to your home humidity is one of the last thing people want to feel when they walk in. Humidity can create many problems within your home, one being mold. 

According to Energy Star, the ideal humidity that you want to have present within your home is 30-50 percent. If you are able to keep your home in between those percentages you may see a variety of positive effects on your home, such as, improve personal comfort, prevent moisture damage on home's wood, paint, and siding, increase indoor air quality and more.

  • Run a dehumidifier.
  • Select houseplants that absorb moisture from the air, such as Boston ferns.
