Since the beginning of the plum season, Yangzhou has been cloudy and rainy for more than ten consecutive days, which not only caused trouble for citizens to travel, but also began to mold in many people's homes. Let's take a look at how to prevent mildew and moisture in the rainy season.
1. Timely close windows (applicable space: living room, bedroom)
When the humid air strikes, residents must remember to close the windows of their homes, especially the south and southeast windows, so as not to let the moisture outside the windows have any chance to sneak in. The most important period of moisture-proof is every morning and evening. The air humidity during these two periods is higher than noon. If the doors and windows are not closed in time, the water vapor will seriously penetrate into every corner of the home.
2. Occasional air conditioning (applicable space: living room, bedroom)
The most convenient way to prevent indoor moisture is to use a dehumidifier or turn on the air conditioner from time to time to extract the moisture from the air. We can use them to prevent the indoor air from being too humid in summer, which will cause the home, especially wood products and wooden floors, to be damp.
3. Lime absorbs moisture (applicable space: kitchen, bedroom)
Lime is a simple and easy-to-make moisture absorbent, 1 kg of quicklime can absorb about 0.3 kg of moisture in the air. Put the lime in a wooden box and cover it when it is not humid; open the cover when it is humid, and do not open large windows to keep the indoor air dry and pleasant.
4. Newspaper anti-mildew (applicable space: bedroom)
The weather is humid and the clothes in the closet are often moldy, what should I do? Open the door of the wardrobe for a long time to ventilate and prevent mildew, but there is also a lot of dust. For example, put newspaper on the bottom of the wardrobe, or even stick newspaper on the inside of the cabinet door. Newspaper can absorb moisture to prevent mildew; and the smell of ink on the newspaper can also repel insects.
5. Use desiccant skillfully
Nowadays, there are many desiccants specially designed for moisture-proof and dehumidification on the market. Reasonable placement can get a good effect of preventing moisture. The two most common are hygroscopic boxes and dehumidification bags. Generally, the hygroscopic box has various fragrances and is suitable for being placed in the sofa and corner room in the living room, under the bed in the bedroom, and under the cabinet in the kitchen. The dehumidification bag made of water-absorbent resin and charcoal is suitable for placing in closed spaces such as wardrobes and shoe cabinets. After using for a period of time, the substances in the moisture-absorbing box can be taken out, and the bulk desiccant can be purchased and put into the box for reuse. . In addition, you can also place some mothballs in the wardrobe and shoe cabinet to prevent insects in summer.
