Dampness could be referred to as little wetness while humidity means damp air. Atmospheric air in our surrounding contains moisture and if moisture comes in contact with a cold surface or objects forms puddles of water. These can be seen clearly with the aid of a glass of water. If some cold glass of water is poured, and left on any surface for some period of time, puddles of water will be rediscovered round the glass and on the surface too. This is as a result of the inability of air to hold its moisture. Since this scenario is caused when moisture comes in contact with cold surfaces due to high humidity, a machine has been designed to reduce the level of humidity by absorbing, cooling and heating moisturiser to prevent the adverse effects of humidity in our homes. Dehumidifier is of great importance.
Dehumidifier for Healthier Air at Home
An air conditioner is also a very good moisture cooling machine because it helps in absorbing moisture from home by its cold coils and cooling it into droplets of water usually fund at the back of the machine. But a dehumidifying machine are sometimes used in place of an air conditioner since they posses both the cold and heat coil for absorbing, cooling and heating up moisture to its original temperature. While these machines are often used to reduce moisture, there are various types of dehumidifying machines, which include the compressor-based dehumidifying machine/ the desiccant and the pettier. There are also small machine recommended types.
Basements are used in the storage of condensed and heated moisture in form of water. The basement because of its water storage ability most time is always dirty and untidy due to the fact that since the heated moisture has long been left in the basement, which leads to piling up of dirt. If the basement is left untidy different odors will engulf and the growth of some unwanted organism will be enhanced.
In order to prevent this negative effect of storage, the basement must be cleaned and dried when due to avoid the adverse effect of odor which could be of ham to those who are allergic to bad odor such as asthmatic patient. While the mildew could cause damages to the lungs, preventive measures should be taken to avoid unnecessary storage of water. Drainages should not be allowed to flow into the basement, the basement could also be waterproofed to add to this preventive measure. Mildew could be removed through bleaching and owners should try not to paint over mildew, when cleaning basement cleaners should try and put on protection such as hand gloves and glasses to prevent infection.
The place used in storing the retained liquidity of moisture is called the basement. Moisture having gone through the due process of cooling and heating by a dehumidifying machine could be freed into the basement for storage. But due to the tendency of water if kept unclean in a place for a long period of time gets dirty and appear stinking odors in basement are inevitable but evitable if kept dry.
Another example of a dehumidifying machine is the desiccant dehumidifying Machine which has some similarities with compressor based but has an absorbing material in place of the cold coil.
Water collected from dehumidifying implements can be used in various ways. In order to ensure proper reuse, the water collected can be used in steam irons and can also be used in flushing. Tap waters are not as good as water collected from the dehumidifying machine for steam irons since mineral materials are likely to build up in tap water and could easily damage the equipment.
