Mold can be a serious problem during the wet fall and winter months because of all the moisture in the air. Having good air ventilation is essential, as well as cleaning up mold as soon as you see it. If left unattended, mold spores can cause health problems and expensive, potentially irreparable damage.
Another solution you can try is a small dehumidifier, like the Air-Dryr from Davis Instruments. These handy devices work by drawing in cool, moist air through the bottom, heating the air to dry it out, and releasing it back through the top.
These dehumidifiers are designed to run quietly and safely 24 hours a day. They use a standard 120-volt plug and less electricity than a 100-watt lightbulb. As an extra safety precaution, they’re made with a thermal cut-off switch.
A variety of units are offered: the Air-Dryr 500 reduces humidity in interior spaces up to 500 cubic feet, while the Air-Dryr 1000 can handle spaces up to 1000 cubic feet. They work well in RVs, travel trailers, boats, cabins, vacation homes, and for winter storage.
