Dehumidifiers for Hotels to reduce humidity
A dehumidifier is essentially a household appliance that helps in optimizing the level of humidity in the air for either comfort reasons or for health concerns. Sometimes it is also used for eliminating pungent and musty odour from the air too. Dehumidifiers can be of small scale size or large scale size. Large ones are used in hotels and commercial buildings like indoor ice rinks for controlling their humidity level.
Dehumidifiers, even though, are utilized for optimising the level of humidity in the air, it usually helps in reducing the level of humidity instead of increasing the same. The way they operate involves the extraction of water from the pre-conditioned air. The water collected by this procedure is called “condensate”. As the saturated vapour pressure of water lowers down with decreasing temperature, the water gets separated from the air and thus humidity of the air gets reduced.
Why humidity is important in hotel rooms?
Rise of humidity in the air can cause supreme condensation. Also, the increase in moisture deposited on the surface of walls and ceilings of the hotel rooms can cause more harm. It can hamper the internal décor of the hotel rooms forming white or translucent spots by setting in the spherical water droplets on the room surface. These condensation spots ultimately grow bigger and take the shape of a patch of discolouration which can act as a spoilage alert to destroy the ambience and look of the hotel rooms.
If the hotel rooms have uncaged wooden antiques or some other such sort of un-showcased artefacts or relics resting in the open air, there is a possibility of them getting dampened with the condensation water droplets too, if there is a sudden rise in humidity. Even the wooden furniture in the hotel rooms can show a syndrome of swollen structures if the rise in humidity is on the steeper side.
Then the furniture would produce a musty odour since the infestation with mould and mildew would creep in as they like to build their nests in their favourite humid wooden furniture. This apart, there can arise the issue of swollen walls too. Generally, hotel rooms have internally cool air-conditioned set up which leads to a difference in temperature with external hot atmosphere.
For this reason, sweating or dampening of the hotel room walls come into the picture, and it becomes more visibly prominent when the hotel room walls get swollen. There have been many instances when the travellers have termed their experience in staying at the hotel rooms as unhygienic. When they were asked the reasons, they shared their grudge against hotel housekeeping for not having any ability to reduce the humidity of the air inside hotel rooms, which caused the growth of microbial and fungi on the hotel linens, curtains and walls producing a stench all around them.
Even, leaving apart the residential rooms of the hotel, if the hotel rooms extend to the kitchen, dining, gym and spa, the headache increases with an increase in humidity level. It causes dampening of equipment like television’s screen, microwave, sharpened cutlery, treadmill, cycle etc. Dehumidifiers are thus indispensable in hotels playing a vital role by keeping the relative humidity level in control and by assuring pleasant guest experience acquired in your hotel.
How to Reduce Humidity in Hotel Rooms?

- Think about how to position it inside the hotel rooms. If keeping it in a central position poses problems, then place it to a corner from where the possibility of spatial contact with wooden furniture is the least, and the possibility of coming in contact with circulating air is the highest.
- You need to be thoroughly familiar with the operation of the dehumidifier. One needs to start with going through the entire manual for getting a grip of proper usage of the product.Taking the help of built-in hygrometer for measuring the humidity level of air in hotel rooms can come to a great deal of aid. An optimal relative humidity (RH) level approximately hovers between the ranges of 45% to 50%. Below 30% RH, it can cause to form cracked ceilings; above 50%, it can cause mould and mildew growth.
- Empty the dehumidifier on a regular basis after every usage in order to get durable service.
