Dealing With Humidity - How To Remove Moisture From Air

There are many reasons you may need to learn how to remove moisture from air. Maybe you live in a humid climate, or just in a shady area that is not dried out by the sun. Perhaps you own an fifth wheel or travel trailer and need to keep it dry when you're camping. There are many different methods of removing moisture from air. I will show you the different methods and how effictive each one is below.

How To Remove Moisture From Air

1. Keep a fan running

This works reasonably well in RVs but not so well in houses due to their size and shape. It's hard to get fresh air in one side and blow it out the other. Houses are also not typically equipped with strong fans like RVs are. No matter what, make sure to run a good fan when you shower, especially in an RV.

If you open a window or vent on one side of your RV, and then turn on the fan on the other side you will keep a constand airflow that will help prevent mold or mildew from growing. Obviously, this is only practical if you're actually using your RV and not if it's stored or under a cover. If this is the case, move on to the next methods.

2. Dri-Z-Air crystals

Dri-Z-Air reviews all show that it's an exceptional quality product and is very reasonably priced. Dri-Z-Air crystals are tiny white nuggets that you put into a special holder. They attract the moisture from the air and the moisture liquifies and runs into a container below. These are quite effective for certain areas but are new well suited to  large spaces. If you have a small corner, closet or tight space where you are struggling with moisture however, these things are fantastic. They will prevent mold from forming wherever you put them. They're a simple, affordable and non-electric method of removing moisture from air.

3. Dehumidifier

There's no better way to dry the air in your home or trailer than to buy a dehumidifier. We have one in our fifth wheel and never have to worry about moisture. They're very quiet, compact and can run for weeks on end without any trouble. Dehumidifiers are a great cost upfront, but buying a good dehumidifier will pay itself back when you're not having to replace carpet or clean moldy areas in your home. I suggest buying a high quality unit made by the likes of Honeywell, Bionaire, DeLonghi or Dometic. A high quality dehumidifer can save you hassle and worry in the future.



There you have it, my how to guide on the best way to remove moisture from air. It's frustrating when you have to clearn up mold or mildew. Get it cleaned and follow these methods to ensure that you won't ever have to do it again! Here's to a drier future.
