Excess moisture can be an issue in any room of the house. Left unchecked, high humidity levels and chronic dampness can lead to moisture problems, with their related musty odors, and the damage they can do to your belongings and your home itself. Keeping indoor humidity below 50 percent is suggested to prevent moisture problems.
Controlling moisture and humidity levels in your laundry room or utility room can be quite a challenge because the washer, the dryer and any wet clothes you hang to dry all contribute to a damp environment. If you live in a humid climate and/or your washer and dryer are in the basement or another poorly ventilated area, you’ve got an even bigger challenge on your hands. Still, it is important to keep your laundry area as dry as you can to control moisture problems in that area.
The DampRid Easy-Fill System Moisture system helps create fresher indoor air, and eliminates musty odors and protects your property against moisture damage caused by excess humidity. Just hang or set a container of DampRid out and it’ll do the work for you, creating drier fresher, comfortable, odor-free air.
Other Tips For Eliminating Excess Laundry Room Moisture and Humidity:
- Make sure your clothes dryer is vented to the outside of the house.
- Check that the vent is clear of obstructions and lint.
- Check for leaks in the washing machine hoses (and repair them).
- Use a cold or warm water wash when hot water isn’t required.
Following these simple tips and using DampRid Moisture Absorber to get rid of your excess humidity will solve your laundry room moisture problem quickly, easily and economically.
