Potential damages of excess moisture at home

Excess moisture can have negative consequences for you and your home.

Persistent high moisture can have various negative effects. You might think that excessive indoor moisture is an issue not worth caring for, but the truth is that a high moisture level at home can result in some serious damages.

Property damage

Rooms with a high moisture level, such as bathrooms, kitchens and basements are most likely to be damaged by an excess of moisture. Small spaces, such as locker rooms, closets and drawers are often quite unventilated. Moisture will therefore grow within these small areas and the items inside, such as food and clothes, can consequently be victims of mould. Another consequence of high moisture is condensation on windows. This excess of water can run into the frame and could also form black mould in the area between the window frame and the wall.

Mould is one of the most common damages of excess moisture at home.

Effect on on your comfort

Our perception of temperature is closely linked to the level of moisture. Our senses tend to evaluate room temperature incorrectly if the relative moisture is very high; when there is more moisture in the air than usual, people often feel much warmer or colder than the actual temperature is.

If you are a victim of any of these damages, do not hesitate to put a moisture absorber at home and help bring the moisture back to a right and comfortable level.

If you suffer from excess moisture in your basement, you can place a moisture absorber to prevent damages.
