A leisure boat is a wonderful thing to own. One thing about boats, though-- they can become smelly and damaged, if they are allowed to become overly humid on the inside. This is true whether you keep your boat on the water or lay it up ashore during the off season. Excess humidity may lead to all sorts of problems. Mold and mildew are unsightly, as well as a potential health hazard. Too much moisture can allow the metal parts of your boat to rust. All things considered, excessive dampness is simply no good for you or for your boat. If you want to keep your pleasure craft nice and dry on the inside, you absolutely must obtain a high-quality boat dehumidifier.
Fortunately, you have come to the right place to find an excellent, efficient boat dehumidifier. We stock and sell compressor-driven refrigerant units and desiccant units, too. For most maritime applications, we recommend that you buy and use a desiccant boat dehumidifier. A desiccant boat dehumidifier will function at temperatures as low as one degree centigrade. A compressor-driven dehumidifier works best when the temperature is at or above fifteen degrees centigrade. If you intend to leave your boat dehumidifier unattended during chilly winter months, a desiccant unit is just the thing you want. Be sure to use a boat dehumidifier that comes with an automatic restart feature, in case the electricity is ever interrupted. A continuous drainage facility is another important feature to look for. As you will not be there to drain a reservoir every day, continuous drainage will send the extracted moisture away from your dehumidifier unit.
If the inside of your boat becomes too damp, it will not be a pleasant environment for anyone. Mold and mildew may grow, and once they have taken hold, they are difficult to remove. If you do find signs of mold and mildew, clean every bit of it up just as soon as you can. Use a diluted chlorine bleach solution to scrub away all indications of mold growth. Dry the area thoroughly. A disinfectant spray such as Lysol may inhibit regrowth, but you must make certain that the relative humidity level stays where it belongs. Relative humidity in excess of fifty-five percent can signal trouble.
