Health and Dehumidifiers
Humidity Affects Your Health
Eva Dry Dehumidifiers are a safe way to rid air of allergens that aggravate allergies & asthma
When the humidity is above 55%, airborne allergens such as mold spores, dust mites, & bacteria thrive and multiply quickly, aggravating the symptoms of allergy & asthma sufferers. Eva-Dry dehumidifiers allow you to easily maintain the right level of relative humidity in homes and keep families healthier.
According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI), "To reduce dust mites, it is important to keep humidity below 50% throughout the home by using a dehumidifier or central or window air conditioning. In fact, making sure humidity levels are below this 50% threshold drastically reduces dust mite populations; most will die within a few days."
Dust mites aren't the only allergens that multiply when home humidity is high. Mold growth, another potent allergen, is also a problem when humidity levels rise. It only takes fourteen to sixteen hours of over-moist air to activate dormant colony forming units. Dormant units, which make their way into the home through ventilation systems, are just waiting for the right conditions to reproduce.
Unlike many dehumidifiers on the market, Eva Dry Dehumidifiers don't contain calcium chloride or create a mess. Our dehumidifiers pull excess moisture from the air by using odorless, absorbent silica gel crystals to eliminate mold, mildew and moisture. They are renewable and safe for children, pets, and the environment, without electricity or batteries.
Once the crystals have absorbed their maximum moisture, the indicator window on the front of the unit turns pink to tell you that it is time to renew the system by drying it out. Then, plug the dehumidifier into a wall outlet in a well-ventilated area and the renewing process will begin. After just a few hours it will dry out and be ready for use again.
Keeping a home's humidity down can ease allergies and asthma, but choosing the right dehumidifier is important. Eva Dry Dehumidifiers are the safest dehumidifiers on the market with no mess and no harmful chemicals.
