Spend the rainy season comfortably

The rainy season has finally started in June.
Also, in Japan, the rainy season started.
Although it happens every year, when the rain continues, it becomes difficult to go out and somehow I feel depressed.
In order to make the rainy season as enjoyable and comfortable as possible, I would like to think about how to deal with the humidity in the room before it starts to rain for a long time.


■Why does moisture accumulate?


In the rainy season, the number of rainy days increases, and the humid and damp days continue. In general, the higher the temperature, the more water vapor the air can hold, so the humidity tends to be high in hot areas of the house, such as behind furniture or in closets where air flow is stagnant. It tends to get stuck easily. Moisture naturally occurs in areas around the water such as washing, cooking, and bathing.

If cold water is poured into the glass, the outside of the glass will become cloudy and water droplets will form on the glass.
Especially during the rainy season, the amount of water vapor in the air increases.
When that air enters the room and touches low temperature areas such as the ceiling and the back of the closet, it causes condensation.

Condensation can affect the human body, such as causing the growth of mold and mites, so special attention is required. Although it is troublesome, if condensation occurs, wipe it off frequently.

■ Easy measures against humidity


“Use the power of home appliances to dry your room!”

Isn’t laundry the most troublesome thing in the rainy season? Because it continues to rain, the laundry must be dried indoors. The unique smell of room drying caused by Moraxella is also a concern, but the humidity in the room suddenly rises and causes troublesome condensation.

There is a technique to create an air passage between the laundry and the laundry to make it easier to evaporate the moisture and make it easier to dry. It is necessary to devise such as borrowing power. You can dry the laundry as quickly as possible by installing a tension rod in the bathroom with a ventilation fan to dry the laundry, or by using the laundry (clothes drying) function of the air conditioner and the wind of the circulator together. increase.

*Moraxella bacteria: bacteria that cause a rag-like odor that tends to occur when laundry is dried indoors

The bathroom is also a humid space, so it is essential to use an exhaust fan.
In the living room, We recommend using a dehumidifier.

“A device for a shoe box”

During the rainy season, moisture tends to build up around the entrance. The moisture soaked into the shoes worn on a rainy day does not dry easily, and the smell is also a concern. Moreover, if you leave it with moisture, even your favorite shoes will be damaged.

In such a case, how about drying the husks of coffee, tea, etc., which are effective in dehumidifying and deodorizing, and putting them in the shoe box?
However, it is recommended to replace it in 1 to 2 days because it will absorb moisture in the shoe box in a short time.
It is also recommended to put baking soda, which has a high dehumidifying effect, in the same way.
To make it easier to use, you can reuse non-woven sachets and stockings and store them like potpourri so you don’t have to worry about spilling when you put your shoes in and take them out.
Also, if the shoes are very damp, it is effective to spread newspaper on the shelf and not put them directly on the shelf.

“Creating air passages”

For large furniture that blocks the wall, leave a gap of 3 to 5 cm between it and the wall to allow air to pass through and prevent moisture and mold. In addition, it is important to ensure that the storage furniture such as bookshelves and wardrobes is not filled with items, but that there is sufficient space in the storage to ensure air flow.
In particular, wooden furniture breathes as a characteristic, so in a close space with high humidity, it not only promotes the growth of mold due to poor ventilation, but also causes damage to the furniture itself, so be careful. .

“Don’t overlook the bedroom”

The amount of sweat that a person perspires while sleeping is said to be the equivalent of 1 to 1.5 cups per night for an adult. Therefore, the bedroom and bedding are also prone to humidity. It is recommended to ventilate the bedroom regularly and to use the slats under the bedding. You want to dry your bedding properly during the rainy season, but if that’s not possible, a futon cleaner with a drying function will be a strong ally.

“Be careful around windows”

During this rainy season, you need to be careful where you place your plants. Plants breathe and release water into the air. Therefore, if you put it around a window, the humidity will rise, making it easier to condense. In order to prevent condensation and mold, it may be a good idea to place it a little away from the window and expose it to the sun on a sunny day.

“Rainy season” when rainy days continue and the damp air makes you feel down
I think that there are many people who are not feeling well, and that the rainy season is the worst time of the year. In order to stay as comfortable as possible during the rainy season, please try to take measures against humidity as much as possible. It is also a beautiful season when hydrangea blooms. Going out for a walk on a rainy day may also lead to a comfortable way to spend the rainy season.
