Side effects of indoor humidity
Here are some things that happen when humidity levels stay high for long periods. Above the 60% humidity mark, mold spores and mildew spots begin to grow. High moisture levels will cause rot, property damage, and affect living conditions. You should start thinking about getting a dehumidifier at this stage.
1. Development of mold and growth of mildew.
2. Rotting furniture, boards, and furnishings
3. Weakened walls and brickwork

When To Install A Dehumidifier
Where Can A Dehumidifier Work?
Application of dehumidifier 
- Excessive moisture causes sweating that cannot evaporate. This is due to the number of people in the space.
- Condensing dripping from cold pipes
- Furniture and doors warping and sticking.
- Mold and mildew build up on fabrics, books, and furnishings
- Infestation of insects. Specific bugs are: moths, fleas, cockroaches, woodlice, millipedes and dust mites.

Maintenance Of Dehumidifiers
- Maintaining a dehumidifier is something I learned how to do the hard way. I didn’t see the importance of it and ended up regretting it.
- Place your dehumidifier on a level surface.
- Place your appliance away from the wall and other obstructions. To ensure good air intake and exhaust, make sure it is at least 6-12 inches away walls and furniture.
- Make sure to close all doors and windows in the room where your dehumidifier is running. Otherwise, the dehumidifier will run trying to dehumidify outside air.
- In rooms 65 degrees F and above, dehumidifiers often work best. Get a low temperature dehumidifier built for crawl spaces, basement, and garages.
- The units air filter eliminates impurities to achieve cleaner, healthier, dehumidified air. If the filter is dirty or not replaced, air struggles to move through the dehumidifier. This makes the dehumidifier work harder. To maintain optimal efficiency, replace your dehumidifier’s air filter on a regular basis.
- Make sure the internal components are free from dust and soil.
- Clean the water container often. Emptying your dehumidifier’s water storage tank does not make it a clean water tank. The water tank can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew.
- Check the water tank and empty accumulated debris from your dehumidifier. Even if it seems, clean it out with soapy water and make sure it dries before using it again.
- I hate emptying a water tank. Consider a dehumidifier with a drain hose or pump.
- Don’t get water on the control panel. Wipe it down as needed with a cloth.
- Avoid compressor short-cycle Stop flipping the dehumidifier off and on. To turn the dehumidifier back on, wait at least 10 minutes. The elapsed time will allow equalization of the pressure in the system. It will also prevent damage to the compressor.
- Short-cycling leads to less effective removal of moisture. This is because the appliance does not have time to evaporate excess water.
- Look for dehumidifiers with an automatic delayed start feature. This will protect the compressor from short-cycle damage.
- Inspect the condenser coils for Frost or Ice Build-up. The condenser coils can get icy in cooler temperatures. which can interrupt operation.
