High Quality Humidifiers in Cleveland
Mold and dust mite allergens can be the cause of many breathing symptoms, especially for the allergic/asthmatic. High humidity causes mold and dust mites to multiply and thus is a priority focus for correction throughout the many places in the home these can grow.
Mold is often detectable to the naked eye (e.g., black spots on wood window frames, bathroom tiles, carpeting and walls). Other potential mold growth areas are in ventilation equipment such as air conditioning coils, humidifiers, air exchanges coils and dehumidifiers.
Basements are notorious for mold and dust mite problems. Being below ground level increases the possibility of water infiltration. This can be due to structural problems whereby the protective membrane between the earth and the foundation wall fails to prevent water from seeping through. Old homes that have had their windows upgraded were not designed to be airtight and can trap humidity, leading to mold growth in the areas of the home mentioned above.
Your Cleveland humidifier contractor provides a full range of humidifiers. During the heating season a whole-house humidifier is strongly recommended for a number of reasons. Proper moisture balance minimizes damage to the wood in your home from excessive dryness; humidifiers can help your family maintain good respiratory health; and dry air makes you feel colder than the actual thermostat setting. You can actually lower your heating bill too, since humidified air feels warmer.
