As summer approaches, bringing higher temperatures and increased humidity, it’s important to consider how these environmental changes can affect our homes, vehicles, and boats. While summer days are ideal for outdoor adventures, the elevated humidity levels can have damaging effects on your possessions. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll discuss the risks associated with high humidity and offer effective strategies to protect your valuables, highlighting the role of Eva-Dry dehumidifiers as a preventative measure.

Understanding Humidity and Its Impacts

Humidity refers to the amount of water vapor present in the air. High humidity can lead to the formation of condensation, which is harmful to various materials, including wood, electronics, fabrics, and metals. In homes, this could mean damaged furniture and peeling wallpaper. Vehicles are not spared either; excess moisture can cause upholstery to become damp and increase the risk of rust. Boats, which are continuously exposed to moist environments, face similar threats but on a more accelerated scale.

Key Areas Affected by Humidity



Moisture can seep into walls and flooring, leading to structural weakening. Electronics and appliances can also suffer from short circuits and corrosion due to excess moisture.



In cars and RVs, high humidity can lead to fogged windows and damp upholstery, contributing to a musty odor that’s hard to eliminate.  


The combination of humidity and salt water can be particularly harsh, leading to corrosion, damp odors, and electrical failures.

Preventative Measures and Solutions



Improving airflow in your home, garage, or boat is essential. Use exhaust fans, open windows when possible, and ensure that air conditioning units are functioning efficiently.



For more targeted humidity control, moisture absorbers and dehumidifiers are indispensable. Eva-Dry offers a range of products designed for different needs and spaces.


Regular Maintenance:

Check and repair any leaks in your home, vehicle, or boat. Ensure that seals are intact and that water does not have a point of entry.


Use a Hygrometer:

Install a hygrometer to monitor humidity levels actively. This can help you manage the environment more effectively by providing real-time data.
