Are humidity issues impacting your bottom line? Moisture poses unique risks in commercial environments. Left unchecked, it could quickly result in damage to goods and equipment, unexpected downtown, health issues, and financial losses. Fortunately, whether you’re suffering early spoilage in your restaurant, moldy paper in your print shop, or corrosion and electrical problems in your machine shop, there are a number of dehumidification strategies to help you mitigate issues surrounding excess moisture.
Ways to Combat Humidity In Your Commercial Business
Many business owners mistakenly believe commercial air conditioning will be enough to manage high summer humidity. While running your air conditioner can remove some moisture from the air, it doesn’t offer complete humidity control. What are the best ways to manage excess environmental moisture?
- Commercial Dehumidification Systems
Industries that require strict moisture control need dedicated dehumidification systems, designed to meet their unique industry and building needs. Skillfully designed by a commercial dehumidification expert, these systems offer precise control of relative humidity, keeping humidity levels at 50% or lower during the summer to reduce the negative impact of moisture buildup and condensation.
- Thoughtful Pool Room Design
For facilities that house indoors pools, such as gyms and hotels, pool room climate control is an essential part of controlling humidity in neighboring areas of your property. Without proper humidity control in your natatorium, alongside an adequate pool room dehumidification system, excess moisture will invade the structure and interior of nearby gym and hotel areas. These issues are more than a matter of patron discomfort, as over time they can result in mold and mildew issues, as well as the decay of furnishing and building structure.
- Outdoor Air Exchange
If your space is contaminated by outside moisture from your rooftop air conditioner or makeup air from your building exhaust, a 100% outdoor air dehumidification system could help. These systems separate moisture from the outdoor air before it enters the building. Later, a recirculating dehumidifier can also be used to remove additional moisture from interior building air if further control is needed.
- Proper Packaging
Used in conjunction with a commercial dehumidification system, proper product packaging is another way to fight the effects of high relative humidity. For instance, storage of powdered foods for commercial purposes would be best in non-permeable containers, versus permeable or semi-permeable packaging.
