Cabins, summer cottages, and vacant homes for sale all have one thing in common: stale air. With no human activity of opening doors and windows, a closed-up residence can quickly acquire an unpleasant smell. Here at Eva-Dry, we have a simple and cost-effective way to help clear the air of excess moisture damage that can make potential buyers turn up their noses. After just a few weeks of use of our dehumidifier products, your home or cabin will have a fresh clean smell once again. When an area is closed up for an extended amount of time, there are some odors that build up that typical sprays and air purifiers just cannot quite get rid of. These smells are often caused by humidity. Excess humidity can cause odors to linger a little longer than usual because the extra water molecules stick to surfaces that don’t get cleaned very often. Portable room dehumidifiers can take the excess moisture out of the air.
By placing a dehumidifier in the area you want to freshen up, you can remove the old, musty air and replace it with fresh air. Make sure to keep the dehumidifier away from any walls or furniture. Close up the building and/or room and make sure there is a tight seal. Be sure to open all closets and doors, including all drawers.
While many people rely on air purifiers to get rid of smells, a dehumidifier is a wonderful tool to get your house or cabin smelling fresh and clean again. In addition to the odor being eliminated, the dehumidifier will continue to clean the air and keep the moisture at an acceptable level to prevent the odor from returning. Then, once you return to your cabin, or the new buyers move in they will find no more stale air.
