Humidity in the home is responsible for many problems not only in “aesthetic” terms but also in health terms.

In fact, in addition to encouraging the  formation of mold, which accumulates on the various surfaces of the home, it could also cause problems such as allergies or greater vulnerability to infections.

For this reason, today we will see together 5 daily practices that really help you reduce humidity in your home!

Open windows

First of all, I suggest you let the house be ventilated daily even during the winter period in order to promote air exchange and let excess humidity escape.

Even if it is very cold, therefore, often open doors and windows  even for just 5 minutes, perhaps during the hottest hours of the day.

In particular, it would be a good idea to leave the windows open after you have cooked or taken a shower. Personally, I make the most of sunny days to have the doors open for as long as possible!

Cooker hood

Another very effective practice to avoid excess humidity in the home is to turn on the hood while preparing meals.

During this activity, in fact, we tend to produce a lot of steam which spreads throughout the house and increases the humidity level.

Since the purpose of the hood is precisely to absorb all the steam produced , remember to turn it on when you are cooking!

And if you want to know how to always keep it clean , here’s an article for you!

Bathroom fan heater

Just as the hood must be used in the kitchen to avoid the formation of humidity , in the bathroom, however, it is advisable to use the fan heater while you take a shower and for the next  30 minutes afterwards .

In fact, since we produce a lot of steam during the shower, this appliance helps to absorb humidity and make the air drier.

Furthermore, it would also be a good idea to open the windows and doors so that all the steam can escape outside.

Drying clothes at home

This habit that many of us have during the winter is one of those mistakes that leads to excessive humidity in the home.

What are we talking about? About  drying laundry in our rooms! Wet clothes, in fact, favor the formation of humidity in the home environment.

If you have no other options and are forced to bring the washed clothes home, I suggest you at least put them to  dry in an unused or well-ventilated room.

Furthermore, it would be a good idea to always position the drying rack near open windows to ensure  good air exchange.

DIY dehumidifier

Finally, let’s see one last trick which involves the use of a DIY dehumidifier  capable of collecting all the humidity present in a room.

To make it, you will have to take a bowl and fill it with coarse salt , which boasts strong absorbent properties.

After that, place it in the various parts of the house where there is a greater concentration of humidity and change it when you notice that the salt has become too wet.

Generally speaking, I suggest you change the bowl every 3-4 days , drying the salt in the oven for  about 15 minutes , in order to reuse it and  avoid waste.


We advise you to contact a specialist if you notice excess humidity in your home that does not go away with natural remedies. Furthermore, it is advisable to contact a plumber in case of leaks coming from the pipes.
