There are certainly health benefits to using the best dehumidifiers (in spanish: los mejores deshumidificadores). While most of us are familiar with the humidity management part, there are many hidden advantages you didn't know existed. Things like changing your mood, sleeping better and reducing your home's electric bills are some of the advantages we will address. So without getting hung up, let's jump right into our list for the day.


1. Destroy mold, mildew, fungus and dust mite habitats.

Microbes like mold, mildew, fungi and dust mites thrive in warm, moist environments. With ideal conditions, they will multiply and spread frantically through the air. Household members would be at risk of inhaling the allergens and aggravating their health. A dehumidifier can help keep the surrounding humidity level below 55%. Without sufficient humidity, the growth of mold and mildew will be effectively hindered.


2. Eliminates mold and mildew and musty odor.

If your home is experiencing the classic musty moldy odor, a dehumidifier will be able to clean it up ...... eventually. Unpleasant odors are typically caused by foul fumes from mold and mildew buildup. Other common musty odors include leaky faucets, pipes or drains that can be controlled with a dehumidifier. It is still recommended that you hire a plumber or repairman to fix the leak.


3. A Healthier Breath

High humidity can be hard to breathe, especially for people with sinusitis. Newborns, infants and children are also among the most affected, as poor air quality can create uncomfortable breathing. Without enough sleep, it can affect their developmental growth, which is very crucial at this stage. A dehumidifier will reduce humidity so that it does not compromise breathing quality. 


With less humidity in the air, there will be fewer allergens in the air that would result in poorer air quality. An air purifier will complement the efforts of the dehumidifier by removing contaminants from the air.


4. Prevent cockroach, millipede and rodent infestation.

Like microorganisms, indoor pests also like to hang out in a warm, moist environment. Having the pest in your home can cause all sorts of diseases to pass through saliva, urine, feces and germs. A dehumidifier may not be able to stop the spread of disease, it can create undesirable living conditions that no pest would want to live here.


5. Stop aggravating indoor allergies, especially asthma.

Again paired well with an air purifier, a dehumidifier will prevent existing allergens from continuing to develop. High humidity can trigger many allergies such as coughing, sinusitis, red eyes, itching and difficulty breathing. It is also known to cause joint pain, especially arthritis in the elderly. This is because the fluid inside the joints becomes thicker due to the changing climate. An asthmatic person will be less likely to suffer an asthma attack.


6. Protect household items from moisture

There are so many things that are vulnerable to excessive moisture. From wooden cabinet, door, cupboard, kitchen cabinet to your furniture. Personal belongings such as clothes, underwear, documents and books are very prone to water vapor. Finally, display foods such as breads, noodles and cookies would not hold up well in a high humidity environment.
