It is not just uncomfortable to live inside a humid home. There are many other negatives that come with access moisture. For instance, did you know that moisture can contribute to pest problems? We are going to be talking about this today and discussing what you should be doing about moisture issues inside your Alabama home. If that is what you are looking for, keep reading. 

Why Is There So Much Moisture In My Home?

Before we talk about moisture control in Alabama, let’s talk about why homes have moisture problems. Often, moisture problems are directly connected to poor weatherproofing. This includes improperly sealed windows/doors, damage to exterior walls, bad insulation, and other similar factors. All of these leaks do not just allow cold and warm air to escape, they also allow exterior humidity to seep indoors. If you can feel the humidity inside on particularly humid days, there is a good chance your home is in need of better weatherproofing. If it is humid indoors but not outside, the humidity is coming from inside your home. Things that make homes more humid include cooking, taking a shower, and leaky piping/fixtures. 

The Dangers Of Having Mold And Fungus In Your Home

Humidity doesn’t just make air uncomfortable to breathe, it can also lead to other serious problems like mold and fungus growth. Many species of mold and fungus growth have a considerable effect on human health. Mold can cause allergic symptoms such as a runny nose, sneezing, itching, coughing, difficulty breathing, headache, fatigue, and wheezing. Black mold, in particular, is especially harmful, causing many of the same problems but can also lead to black mold poisoning. Fungus affects humans in a slightly different way. It usually attacks nails and skin in the form of fungus infections. Fungi can also lead to blood infections, meningitis, and lung infections.
