Your Stuff, Our Solution
Your collection is your passion! You’ve spent thousands of hours, and who knows how many dollars to track down each individual item. Don’t let dampness or moisture ruin your investment or your enjoyment.
Protect Your Prized Possessions
Consider the location where you store your collection. Are the relative humidity and temperature right for your items? If the relative humidity is too high, conditions are ideal for the growth of mold and fungus. For most mixed collections, a temperature of 65 to 70 degrees is best for storage, with the relative humidity in the area of 35 to 50%. Neglecting these conditions will shorten the lifespan of your paper products and rust or corrode metal objects.
Check Your Humidity Levels
Inexpensive devices called hygrometers are readily available to test your air’s humidity level. Once done, if you find your humidity level is too high – or if you live in a very warm and tropical climate, it’s time to purchase an Eva-Dry dehumidifier.
Be Proactive Before it’s too Late
Collections stored in lower levels or out of the way locations may be subject to damage from even low levels of moisture that may be difficult to detect. Once you can smell the problem, the damage may already be done. Eva-Dry’s dehumidifiers are environmentally-friendly, easy to use and great for all sizes of spaces.
