Humidity can turn the interior of your home into a tropical rainforest, leaving you and everyone inside hot, sweaty, sticky, and absolutely miserable. Further troubling, humidity can bring pests into your home that ordinarily would stay far away. The solution to high indoor humidity levels is the all-mighty vapor barrier.
What is a Vapor Barrier?
Many homeowners are unfamiliar with the term ‘vapor barrier,’ so let’s first discuss what this is and how it can help. A vapor barrier is a thin layer of plastic material that prevents moisture from seeping into the home. After vapor barrier installation, you can easily maintain a dry, comfortable home year-round.
How a Vapor Barrier Reduces Indoor Humidity Levels
As humidity levels rise, moisture sneaks into the home through tiny cracks and crevices. Vapor barriers prevent humidity from seeping through the passages. No more moisture seeping through floors, walls, ceilings, and other surfaces! Without humidity seeping inside, you aren’t subject to higher temperatures and stuffy conditions.
Even More, Reason to Install a Vapor Barrier
The biggest advantage provided by a vapor barrier certainly is its moisture-shielding abilities, but they do not stop there. After vapor barrier installation, you can expect a pest-free place that resists mold and mildew growth.
