- Dehumidifier and Humidifiers - A Breeding Ground For Mold, Algae and Bacteria By:-Mr Artemiss
Dehumidifiers are great for removing excess humidify in a home temporarily. The difference between a Humidifier and a Dehumidifier is a Humidifier adds moisture to dry air and a Dehumidifier removes moisture from humid air. Both can have the same problem of mold, algae and bacteria buildup in its standing water. Both units have standing water in them that requires you to clean them on a regular basis. Monthly is the perferral option. Why, microorganisms will grow rapidly in standing water.
