Why is mould dehumidification important?
Mould spores spread through air flow in a contaminated environment; mould dehumidification aims to reduce this. Mould dehumidification begins with introducing a low-grain refrigerant (LCR) humidifier into an environment. This reduces the relative humidity, and prevents further mould growth.
We often introduce engineering controls in the form of dehumidification to monitor the humidity in water damaged homes in physical condition three.
Methods of mould dehumidification
One method is to contain an infected area, while introducing a high heat with low humidity. Another method is to contain the environment and introduce air filtration devices. The aim is to increase the temperature and reduce the humidity, which is sometimes done by putting dehumidification into a small, confined environment. This increases the temperature without a heating device.
It is important to reduce the humidity to stunt further growth of the fungus and reduce the chances of the contaminant spreading.
What are dehumidification units?
There are many dehumidification units in Australia, ranging from small to large. The specific unit chosen depends on the cubic size of the airspace needing dehumidification.
It is important to understand the machinery that is being utilised, as there are certain companies that have a goal of simply selling as many units into properties as possible.
These companies fail to inform the end user of the risks, and the preventative measures that need to be taken to contain certain areas, in order to increase the performance of the unit.
Before purchasing a dehumidifier, we recommend relying on a professional who understands the machinery to give you the correct advice about which dehumidifier would work for you.
Exhaust fans, which complete the pulling action, are great example of efficient dehumidifiers. Pulling, particularly in bathrooms and showers, takes wet air like condensation and steam out of a particular zone, which is extremely important.
Ceiling fans and under floor fans
Ceiling fans are phenomenal at moving air, and that’s the goal. Subfloor fans are also fantastic, when there is a pull and push motion or vice versa happening in subfloors.
This enables wet air in a subfloor to exit the property and allow lower humidity air in instead.
