Ways to Reduce Humidity in Your Home

High humidity levels in your home will almost always lead to mold issues. Below we have listed a couple ways to reduce your humidity levels:
·         Use exhaust fans in your kitchen, laundry and bathrooms
·         Vent gas burners, clothes dryers, etc. outside
·         Properly adjust humidifying devices such as furnaces and humidifiers to 35%
·         Air out your house for a short period of time on low humidity days, if weather permits
·         Improve the drainage around your foundation
o   Extend downspouts away from your foundation
o   Regularly clean out your gutters and downspouts
o   Try to not overwater foundation plants
·         Fix any leaking outdoor faucets
·         If you have central air conditioning, install an air conditioner vent wherever there is a humid space in your home, with returns.
