Water condensation from a storm can lead to secondary damage and cause more damage than the original loss. Speed is key to ensure you are able to reduce the humidity in the environment and stop the loss.
So, what is relative humidity? Relative humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air. Relative Humidity refers to the amount of water in the air compared to the total amount it could contain at a specific temperature. For example, 100% relative humidity during the summer would feel like the air is made of pea soup. However, 100% relative humidity during winter would feel less uncomfortable. This is because 80°F air can hold more water than, say, 20°F air.
