Humidity Causes Mold To Grow

Too much humidity in your home or place of business can cause excessive moisture to collect on windows and other cold surfaces during the winter months. During the summer month, humidity can pretty much get into everything if your home. Damp areas are ideal growing spots for mold. Since mold feeds on any organic material, burrowing deeper and deeper, your best bet is to keep humidity under control.

Most experts agree that humidity levels should not exceed 55% during summer months (ideally between 35-40%). However, during the winter months, when temperatures dip below freezing the ideal target number changes the cooler it gets.

Temp Outdoors………..Relative Humidity

+20F…………………………………….35%

+10F…………………………………….30%

0F…………………………………………25%

-10F………………………………………20%

-20F………………………………………15%
