ABSTRACT
The article discusses the many uses of dehumidification. Humidity consists of the presence of moisture in the atmosphere and relative humidity in the air inside a display or storage environment is a critical factor for the safekeeping of its contents. Unfortunately, most stored materials are made up of paper, textile or wood that absorb moisture that promotes the growth of bacteria, moulds and fungi. Removing the moisture is said to eliminate the damaging effects of the microbes by using the process of dehumidification.
