Thorough Relative Humidity Levels Check in Houston, TX
Relative Humidity Levels (Outside level vs Indoor levels). Humidity or dampness (water vapor) in the air can supply enough moisture for mold growth. Indoor relative humidity (RH) should be kept below 60 percent (ideally between 30 percent and 50 percent). The reason behind humidity levels being higher inside than outside is due to poor ventilation and the use of air conditioners.
Poor ventilation makes it so that there is less movement in the air, allowing water to become saturated into the air. Poor air quality in your home due to high levels of relative humidity can cause mold growth and peeling wallpaper. Moreover it may have a significant impact on your health and trigger allergies.
