After the startling sting, the temperature gradually warmed up, but the warm and humid air also brought rounds of rainy weather. Frequent rain and rain have increased the humidity in the air, and the “return to the south sky” struck at this time. Slippery floors and moldy walls should be a bad experience that most people have ever had, especially those who live on low floors. Humidity may cause various discomforts to the human body, and even become a breeding ground for many diseases. At this time, people can use dehumidifiers to help to make the home environment healthier.
Heavy moisture can cause many diseases
Respiratory system diseases The humid air allows some bacteria and germs to multiply and spread faster. When the fungus is inhaled into the lungs, it is easy to cause pneumonia. Fungi and their metabolites enter the human body through various channels, and can also cause allergic bronchitis, bronchial asthma, etc., or cause the original allergic disease to relapse.
Skin diseases The warm and humid environment makes fungi and insects and mites grow rapidly, which is easy to cause skin fungal infections, eczema, tinea, allergic dermatitis and a series of skin diseases.
Rheumatism patients with rheumatic bone pain are more affected by weather changes, especially the elderly. The vast majority of arthritis patients are sensitive to climate change. The increase in humidity in the air can increase joint swelling and pain, and induce or aggravate the original joint diseases.
Gastrointestinal diseases Moist air will accelerate the reproduction of germs and make food more prone to decay. Eating these decaying foods can easily cause gastrointestinal diseases such as bacterial food poisoning, bacillary dysentery, and E. coli enteritis. At the same time, the high humidity in the spring can also easily disturb the gastrointestinal function, which further increases the risk of gastrointestinal diseases.
The role of dehumidifier
Prevent mildew and reduce bacterial growth. Setting the ambient humidity of the room below 60% can effectively remove moisture, thereby reducing the growth of fungi and other bacteria, and also prevent mildew on items.
Improving sleep quality Damp bedding not only makes people feel uncomfortable on the body, but also prevents the body from entering a deep sleep state. Drying quilts and mattresses with dehumidifiers can significantly improve people’s sleep quality.
Pay attention to the use of dehumidifiers
1. When using the dehumidifier, keep the air inlet and outlet unobstructed, and there should be enough space around, so that the dehumidification effect can be better and more uniform.
2. The humidity of the dehumidifier is controlled to ensure the indoor humidity of 50% to 60%, which can effectively prevent moisture and dehumidification and prevent mildew of items. You can set the opening time by yourself, and remember to close the doors and windows when opening the dehumidifier.
3. The dehumidifier must ensure that the sink is cleaned once a day. Treat the stagnant water in the sink cleanly to avoid the growth of bacteria. When the household dehumidifier is used for a long time, it should be maintained once a week; if it is not used for a long time, it should be cleaned and stored.
4. When using a dehumidifier to dehumidify to dry the quilt and mattress, close the door and windows of the room, and set the humidity as the drying function when there is no one.
