Dampness is known to be slight wetness while humidity could be termed damp air. Air in our surrounding contains moisture which means when condensed will forms droplets of water. This could be illustrated using a glass cup filled with cold water; this glass cup tends to be dry before filling but after it must have been filled, the glass will be observed to be surrounded by water all over its formerly dried body. This illustration indicates that moisture condenses on cold surface to form droplet of water. A dehumidifier is a machine used in cooling, drying and converting moistures into water, thereby enhancing reduction in humidity ratio.
Dehumidifying machines are widely used over the world sometimes in place of air conditioner to reduce humidity. There are various types of dehumidifying which include the compressor based type, Pettier machines and Desiccant dehumidifying machine to mention a few. These machines are all of necessary use in both homes, offices and even in cars or wardrobes.
Basements are used in the storage of condensed and heated moisture in form of water. The basement because of its water storage ability most time is always dirty and untidy due to the fact that since the heated moisture has long been left in the basement, which leads to piling up of dirt. If the basement is left untidy different odors will engulf and the growth of some unwanted organism will be enhanced.
Another best home dehumidifier machine that help to reduce moistures in the desiccant dehumidifying machine which has some similarity with the compressor based type but differs from it by using moisture absorbing material to replace cold coils. Water blown off can be stored and reused for some minor usage such as toilet flushing.
The place used in storing the retained liquidity of moisture is called the basement. Moisture having gone through the due process of cooling and heating by a dehumidifying machine could be freed into the basement for storage. But due to the tendency of water if kept unclean in a place for a long period of time gets dirty and appear stinking odors in basement are inevitable but evitable if kept dry.
Dirty and untidy basement water can also lead to the growth of mildew on the surface of the wall or on the floor. Since mildew can grow on nearly all organic matters, it is necessary to prevent their growth by cleaning, emptying and drying basement water. Odor can also be prevented by drying. Other sources of water must also be checked to avoid their unnecessary inflow into the basement. Basement can also be waterproofed for preventive purposes.
Mildews that grow on basement, if not properly taken care of can cause various harms to owners. The lungs could be affected, while humidity itself can be dangerous if not properly taken care of. Dehumidifying machines is one of great use in homes and everywhere since they can help reduce humidity which could be an allergy to those with arthritis or even asthmatic patients.
Water collected from dehumidifying implements can be used in various ways. In order to ensure proper reuse, the water collected can be used in steam irons and can also be used in flushing. Tap waters are not as good as water collected from the dehumidifying machine for steam irons since mineral materials are likely to build up in tap water and could easily damage the equipment.
Dehumidifiers should be considered suitable for reducing humidity and for protecting homes against the adverse effects of moisture.
