Prevent Overly Moist Air

What is Moist Air?

What is moist air? Moist air is humid air and vice versa. There's a certain level of moisture that's acceptable in your home's indoor air but just like in most things moderation is key. Engineers and health experts advise keeping your home's indoor air at 50 percent relative humidity. The optimal range is anywhere from 30 to 60 percent relative humidity; however, anything above 60 percent is considered moist air. This air usually resides in basements and crawlspaces where homes are particularly vulnerable to moisture from the ground. 

So to answer more specifically about what is moist air, it is overly humid air that can wreak havoc on a home's indoor environment. Mold, mildew, other allergens, and pests thrive in overly moist conditions. These irritants can cause health problems, musty smells, and home damage. It is also uncomfortable making you sweat and leave you feeling dehydrated. 

Reducing moist air can help prevent home repairs, health problems, and an uncomfortable living arrangement.
