A room full of moisture is not only an aesthetic problem, but also a health problem. If we spend many hours a day in a room with too much moisture, sooner or later it will affect our health.
Moisture in offices is in many cases the order of the day. Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity to work in a modern and well-designed building. In many companies, interiors that were originally intended for other purposes are used as offices. No wonder that moisture appears in them all the time.
What causes excess moisture?
The excess of humidity in rooms is most often caused by structural defects in the building or improper use. Often the reason is inefficient ventilation, which results in insufficient air exchange between the inside of the building and the outside air outside. The reason may be too tight windows or poorly functioning ventilation ducts. You don’t have to wait long for the effects of excess moisture. Excess water vapor appears in the rooms, which condenses and settles on the walls and ceilings.
Long-lasting moisture is an excellent medium for the growth of bacteria, mold and fungi. They appear on walls and ceilings and keep growing over time. They look bad, but that’s not the only problem. Mold and fungi also have a negative impact on the health of people who stay in such a room on a daily basis. They can cause allergies, respiratory diseases, decreased immunity and general malaise. If a damp room is a workplace, it is no wonder that people working in such conditions do not feel well and do not fully perform their professional duties.
How to fight moisture in the interior?
First of all, you need to ensure proper ventilation of the room. A good solution may be to ventilate the interior regularly to ensure an adequate level of air exchange. It is also necessary to ensure efficient ventilation – all installations must be checked. It is best to entrust this task to a professional company that will deal with it efficiently and comprehensively. If the humidity is too high, it may be necessary to dry buildings, which are also handled by professional companies. By investing in drying buildings, you can be sure that in a short time the problem of excessive moisture will become less and less, and finally disappear completely.
However, despite the fact that the building will be dry, it is worth taking care of those structural elements of the building that have been exposed to moisture, mold or fungi for a long time. It may be necessary to use specialized preparations that will destroy harmful creations. Sometimes even this is not enough and it may turn out that in addition to drying, you also need to take care of a general renovation and renovation of walls or ceilings.
