When we add all the sources together a family of 4 will put about 30 litres into your home each day.
This moisture needs to be controlled to stop condensation & damage to your home.
Each day our home absorbs this moisture, our lounge suite, carpet, curtains, walls and beds all absorb this moisture, and we feel it as Dampness in the winter and humidity in the summer.
