Keeping your home dry in Auckland isn’t as simple as it sounds. Our subtropical climate can dump record amounts of rain one minute and record high temperatures the next. Apart from the weather, the average Kiwi family produces up to 3,500 litres of damp air per year in their home due to cooking, cleaning, drying clothes and showering. It’s essential that this moisture is actively removed to prevent condensation, mould and airborne particles that can be unpleasant for your family. Not only is the look and smell of a damp home off-putting for your family and visitors, but it can cause damage to your home and your health. Once mould has sunk its claws into your home, it’s incredibly hard to eradicate it.
What Causes Damp and Mould?
This is caused by excess moisture in your home that can occur in a number of ways. If you constantly see condensation on your windows, this could be a sign your home is damp. It can be caused by household appliances, leaking pipes, rising dampness on ground floors or rain seeping into your home.
How to Prevent Damp and Mould
Some simple solutions can be to allow floors and worktops to air dry after mopping and cleaning, open windows after showing and allow your laundry room to ventilate after use. But the best and only proven way to keep your home dry all year through is with world-leading EVOAQ ventilation systems expertly supplied and installed by Comfy Kiwi Homes.
What Do Home Ventilation Systems Do?
Home ventilation systems use a process to enhance air quality through filtering air and moving fresh air from outdoors to in, removing moisture in the process. EVOAQ ventilation systems go a step further making them the premium choice. They are intelligently designed to learn and adapt to the internal and external environment to adjust their operation automatically, without your input. They continuously bring in filtered fresh air which reduces moisture and makes for a healthy home.
Dangers of a Damp Home
Damp and mould in a home can cause respiratory problems, infections and contribute to allergies and even asthma. Mould is toxic and can cause allergic reactions and an irritable environment, especially for vulnerable people like babies, older people and those with a weakened immune system or existing respiratory problems.
