Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.
