The heat is on in Middle Tennessee. We've enjoyed a beautiful spring, but the heat and the humidity are back! When high temperatures mix with high humidity, it feels hotter than it actually is. When indoor humidity levels are high, not only do we feel sticky and uncomfortable, we also increase the risk for mold, mildew, and allergy and asthma triggers.
Is your skin feeling dryer than usual? Notice that you need to water the houseplants more frequently? It’s hard to believe there would ever be a need for humidifying given how wet the summer was, but let’s face it, it’s dry! And as the temperature outside gets colder, it’s going to get even dryer indoors. So, take some precautions in protecting wooden instruments, antique furniture, hardwood floors and your air-ways from drying out and cracking!
