The optimal humidity for interior comfort and ideal flooring performance is between 35% – 55%. We recommend in the colder months to purchase a humidifier to add humidity to the air when needed and also to purchase a hygrometer to monitor the interior levels.
You will notice the effects of LOW humidity in your suite when you see the following start to occur:
– Dry cupping in the floor
– Floor boards shrinking
– Gaps forming between planks and at baseboards
It is important to maintain humidity at the recommended levels as flooring issues that arise as result of improper maintenance are NOT covered under the warranty.
Excess humidity is caused through daily activities such as cooking, bathing, doing laundry and dishwashing. The use of your exhaust fans is critical to help control the humidity levels. Always use your hood fan when cooking and use your bathroom fan when showering/bathing.
You will notice the effects of HIGH humidity in your suite if you notice the following start to occur:
– Condensation on windows, walls or ceiling
– Drywall staining and discolouration
– Mould growth
Remember that damages caused by improper monitoring and lack of maintenance of interior humidity levels is NOT covered under warranty and is the responsibility of the homeowner and or tenant.
