When the humidity levels are out of proportion in your Fairfax-area home, your health is at risk.
Low humidity levels can make your home feel colder than it really is. Drier air also makes your skin and lips feel chapped and can make you more susceptible to getting sick. Excess humidity levels can leave your home at risk of water damage and mold growth.

Benefits of Humidifiers
Humidity acts as a natural moisturizing agent that relieves dryness in your home. For this reason, humidifiers are often used for relieving:
- Dry skin
- Sinus congestion/headache
- Dry throat
- Nose irritation
- Bloody noses
- Irritated vocal cords
- Dry cough
- Cracked lips
When the air in your home is dry, these discomforts may take place. These issues are especially common during the winter months or when the air conditioner is used during the summer.
Signs You Need A Dehumidifier
If you’re unsure if you have an issue with excess humidity in your home, there are some signs you can look for – all of which can be reduced by the use of a dehumidifier. Here are some signs:
- There is frequent condensation on and around your windows
- There are water stains on the walls and ceilings of your home
- There is poor ventilation due to humidity – especially in bathrooms or the kitchen
- There are small black spots growing on the walls from mold and mildew
- There is a distinct smell of must and mildew in your home
- The couch covers and other materials in your home feel damp on an average day
If any of these issues occur in your Oakton-, Tysons-, or Reston-area home, it’s time to consider reducing the amount of moisture in your environment by investing in a dehumidifier.
