Though desiccants are more commonly used for bulk applications such as shipping containers or packaging, moisture control is important for residential applications as well. Excessive humidity can cause wood floors to warp and dry wall to mold. Constant moisture can also create an odor on clothing, furniture, and carpeting. Thankfully, protecting the assets in your home is simple.
Areas such as a linen closet, bedroom closet, and food pantry are very common locations for high humidity because typically these areas have limited air movement. Placing Cargo Dry Plus in these locations will reduce the moisture content and prevent damage. Cargo Dry Plus will absorb up to 158% of its weight in moisture and come ready to hang. A case of Cargo Dry Plus contains 6 units and would be sufficient to cover multiple rooms in a house.
Basements and attics are also high moisture environments due to the fluctuations in temperature. Over time, moisture left in these locations could cause mold and eventually lead to serious structural damage. Proper ventilation should first be confirmed by a professional. Cargo Dry Pak bags can then be added to reduce the dewpoint. Each bag contains 1,500 grams and can easily be placed throughout a basement and attic. One case of Cargo Dry Pak contains 10 units and prevents condensation for over 50 days.
Homeowners can prevent moisture damage to items stored in their homes by using Cargo Dry Plus or Cargo Dry Paks. These desiccant products can inhibit the formation of mold, mildew, rust and corrosion.
