Moisture Control Hire

As specialists in the field of moisture control, we offer a wide range of portable solutions for both hire and sale. These include:

  • Dehumidifiers - these compact, electrical appliances help remove moisture from the air but are also effective in drying areas that have been affected by flooding or general dampness.
  • Humidifiers - more commonly used in winter, humidification systems increase moisture content in the atmosphere and are ideal for scenarios where heating systems have left indoor air excessively dry.
  • Ventilation - depending on its functionality, a ventilation arrangement can help adjust the air humidity of most indoor applications until it naturally reaches an optimal level.

Ineffective moisture control can have worrying implications for businesses, and those who work for you, so it’s important to ensure that humidity levels are kept within a range of 40-60%. Failure to do so increases the likelihood of people developing respiratory illnesses, skin dryness and eye irritation, but can also have an impact on your building’s structure and its contents.
