Low Humidity Could be Ruining These Areas of Your Home

Extreme humidity can be a negative thing, especially for hairstyles, make-up, and even inhaling. But too little humidity in your home can actually damage some features of your home’s interior. Check out these few products you may have within your home that a lack of humidity can wreck over time.  

Wood Furniture and Wood Floors

When humidity levels go up and down it causes wood to expand and shrink, which could cause cracks and weakness in wood furniture. The bloating and shrinking also adds to warping or splits in wood flooring. 

Books

Yes – books necessitate moisture to keep the pages from becoming dry and delicate. The lack of moisture can also make the ink flake and the cover warp. On the contrary, excessive moisture could cause book pages to stick together permanently, discoloration, and potentially mold. 

Electronics

Low humidity creates static electricity which can wreak havoc on the internal components of electronic equipment, such as your LED television, desktop computer, or even your beloved Xbox. 

Collections

Whether you are collecting wall art or stamps and photographs, make sure your home has a good balance of humidity all year. Increasing and decreasing of humidity could cause postage stamps to become brittle and discolored and can even curl the corners on your photographs. Low humidity can also make the paint used to create artwork brittle or cause it to split. 

Hobbies

Do you collect win? Or play the piano? Humidity a major concern for you, too. To little humidity can cause the cork in a fine bottle of wine to split or shrink, potentially damaging your vino. Insufficient humidity may also cause pianos, guitars, and other fine instruments to be out-of-tune or result in cracks in the wood.
