One of the main concerns to the owners of warehouses and storage facilities, especially facilities containing sensitive or delicate goods, is excessive moisture.
Excessive moisture can cause problems with mould and mildew, rust, corrosion, rot and insect infestations, resulting in costly and disruptive damage to many commonly stored goods such as metals, powder, food, electronics and clothing, not to mention the equipment in the storage facility itself.
The main sources for this excessive moisture are unnecessary ventilation, gaps in the structure of the building, as well as evaporation from moisture-laden products. While improving the insulation of the building will ease the problem, a long-term solution is required to ensure the perfect climate is maintained. The installation of dehumidification devices moves moisture-laden air outside or condenses the moisture into liquid water, ensuring stored goods are kept in optimum condition.
