This past winter, our partner and I redid the floors in our home. All of us used to have a brick lavatory dining room and all carpet throughout the remainder of the first floor. However, all of us recently had the entire first floor remodeled with hardwood floors. I’ve typically liked the look of hardwood floors, but I’ve never had them in our home. When all of us first got them installed, I was on cloud 9 with excitement because they looked so good. To our disappointment, when the weather grew moderate and sticky and the summer time creeped in, the floors began to experience some concerns. It was almost as if the floorboards were lifting. I didn’t guess why this was happening, so I called the supplier that installed the floors. They informed me that this was likely due to the humidity levels in our lake apartment and advocated that I call our local heating and cooling supplier. Within a few afternoons, I had an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporation knocking on our door. She informed me that all of us must keep our lake apartment at an optimal humidity level, meaning that the air cannot be too wet or too dry, or else it would destruction our up-to-date floors. When there is too much moisture in the air, the floorboards expand and rise, as they were start to do now. If the air is too dry, on the other hand, then the floorboards shrink back down and become brittle. This can cause cracking. The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporation advocated that all of us install a dehumidifier. This would require little installation, as it can fit as a direct attachment to our new heating and cooling method. As the a/c runs, the dehumidifier works to take some of the moisture out of the air. The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporation told me how to adjust the settings if the air began to know a little too dry.
