The Most Common Home Humidity Levels That Can Trigger Allergies

Updated: Nov 21

The link between moisture/humidity and allergies is well documented. For example, moisture encourages the growth of mold, both indoor and outdoor. Dust mites also love humid air. All these could trigger allergies, and we all know that can make one’s life very difficult.

However, we have good news: conditions that trigger allergies can mostly be controlled. For instance, the United States Environmental Protection Agency advocates for using “dehumidifiers and air conditioners, especially in hot, humid climates, to reduce moisture in the air.”
