Using a dehumidifier can keep your indoor air cleaner for longer

I am getting sick of being inside hospitals after dealing with my mother’s recent health problems.

She was in a hospital room for two weeks after falling and breaking her leg.

The hospital had to perform a few surgeries because of the severity of the fracture and the wound it created during the fall. I wasn’t sure how long she was going to stay in the hospital at first because the doctors couldn’t come to an agreement on what her long term should be given all of the variables. It was frustrating, but at least our apartment is roughly five minutes away from the hospital where she was staying. And despite it being towards the tail end of the pandemic-stage of the long term COVID crisis, I was still worried about the virus when she was put in the hospital. They told me about how they keep the rooms isolated with separate HVAC systems and air purifiers as well. This new hospital was finished during the pandemic and a lot of the last minute changes to the designs were done in response to the pandemic itself. They also use dehumidifiers to keep the moisture levels to such a low level that it prevents the spread of germs like bacteria, viruses, and fungal spores. With all of these mitigation efforts in these isolated indoor climate control systems, it results in amazingly clean air quality throughout the whole hospital. We use a dehumidifier at home for the same reason—improved indoor air quality. Sure, it costs more money on our electricity bill to run a dehumidifier, but I’m happy with the improvements it makes to our air quality and our allergies as well.
