Lack of humidity control can wreak havoc on your guitar. Swings in relative humidity can throw your guitar out of tune and eventually destroy it from warping, cracking or rusting. Both excess humidity and dry air cause damage:
Too Much Humidity, and you'll see:
- Swollen wood framing around doors and windows, and damage to instruments.
- Warping or rotting wood floors, trim and wood furniture
- Mold and mildew infesting wood furniture
Too little humidity, and you'll see:
- Cracking woodwork and wood floors
- Loose or failing joints on wood furniture
- Your guitar and other musical instruments falling out of tune
