One of the biggest contributors to allergy and asthma symptoms is mold. Mold spores travel through the air and can trigger or increase the severity of allergy symptoms.

Mold can only survive in a moist environment, therefore one of the easiest ways to protect against mold growth and mold spores is to install a home dehumidifier. Keeping the humidity levels in your home below 60% will halt current mold growth and prevent any new mold growth from taking place.

Dust Mites
Like mold, dust mites are major contributors to asthma and allergies. The actual irritant with dust mites is their waste, which creates skin reactivity for 90% of patients, according to American Family Physician.

A single female dust mite can lay upwards of 250 eggs during its lifespan, it’s easy to see how those with asthma and allergies can quickly have issues with an excess of dust mites in your home. Again, a whole home dehumidifier can be extremely helpful in reducing dust mite populations and filtering them out of your home’s breathable air.

Moisture Control
The key to controlling allergies is to control the moisture level in your home. Home dehumidifiers for your basement or crawl space are designed to ensure that the humidity level in your home stays below 60%, which significantly reduces the ability for allergens and mold to survive. Home dehumidifiers also filter the air circulating in your basement or crawl space to help remove any dust mites or other allergens that may sneak in through open windows, access openings or improperly sealed gaps in your foundation.
