Dehumidifiers? Humidity absorbers?

“Anti-damp products: Dehumidifier, humidity absorbers… How much time and money were lost!”

Until I found the real solution to damp problems, I wasted 6 months and a significant sum of money in half-measures. I hope my case would help others to avoid stumbling into blindly and go straight to the definitive solution.”

“When first mould spots appeared in my house, the condensation on mirrors, mouldy odours, I didn’t understand what was going on.

The first thing I thought was if dampness came from outside. I went out, I touched the facade, I checked the walls to the exterior, but I found nothing. Neither fissures, leaks nor humid walls.

From then on, I looked for anti-damp products in the stores in order to fix the problem, such as paint, silicone and anti-mould sprays. The cheapest I found were the humidity absorbers. I placed a few in each room.

In a few days, they were filled with water, but mouldy odours continued and the spots, even worse.

Time after, tired of buying humidity absorbers each month and problem remaining, I bought a dehumidifier.

As it name implies, a dehumidifier should get rid of environmental humidity and, this way, eradicate the problem.

Once I installed it at home, I realised it was not that simple. The dehumidifier takes too much space and it is uncomfortable to move in the bedroom or living room. It makes a lot of noise and we couldn’t sleep at nights. If we disconnected it, condensation appeared in the windows in the morning.

Tired of these experiments with dehumidifiers and humidity absorbers that, at the end, don’t solve nothing and are expensive, we finally contacted an specialised company to resolved these issues.

After visiting our home, a MURPROTEC professional studied our situation and advised us the installation of a Centre for Air Treatment (CAT). This system renews air constantly and eliminate the exceed of humidity.

Since then, we haven’t had problems anymore, we have now forgotten damp patches, condensation and mouldy odours.”

Dampness caused by condensation
The condensation in the mirrors in the morning is the most common evidence, because everyone have experienced condensation in car’s windscreen, and have to activate the ventilation system.
This condensation in the mirrors in the home suggests that, maybe, damp does not came from outside but it is produced inside the house, given that it is not possible that external humidity crosses the glass. Many people make the mistake of thinking that anti-damp paint and anti-mould sprays solve the problem.

Humidity absorbers
It seems logical that people start by using the most simple and economic solutions at their hand.
As a general rule, the first thing people buy are humidity absorbers to be placed in the affected rooms, allowing these chemical products (calcium chloride) to absorb the environmental humidity.
These chemical anti-damp products may improve small moisture problems due to condensation temporarily and in reduced spaces (a maximum of 14 squared metres) but, in most cases, they do not solve damp problems and condensation continues to worsen.

Dehumidifier
As happens with humidity absorbers, dehumidifiers can only treat reduced spaces (a maximum of 25 squared metres) and, as humidity symptoms commonly appear in several rooms at the same time, unless 3 or 4 dehumidifier are installed throughout the home, or a sole dehumidifier does not provide a complete solution.
Another important drawback is that the dehumidifier extracts air humidity but it does not renew it. It is to say that, house occupants breath the same air because dehumidifier runs on a closed circuit: draws and expels the air at the home without renewing the air.

CAT: THE DEFINITIVE SOLUTION TO PROBLEMS CAUSED BY CONDENSATION

What CAT is?
An Intelligent Centre for Air Treatment (CAT) intakes outdoor fresh air and, filters it and drives it to home, generating a faint overpressure (2 to 3 pascals). Humid and polluted air inside the home is expelled mechanically through extract air grilles, placed in the appropriate locations (doors, windows, external walls…)

Adequate temperature in the winter
In cold seasons, to avoid cold air to coming into your house, CAT possesses temperature sensors included in its main module. Once outside temperature drops under 15 ºC, preheating system makes effective automatically and heats the air in order to keep an adequate temperature at home and prevent condensation.

100% of the house
By generating an overpressure inside the home, indoor air spreads throughout the house, which enables CAT to ventilate and sanitize 100% of the internal volume and, particularly, all places where mould grows: inside and/or behind wardrobes, paintings, headboards, sofas, furniture, corners, north facing wall, cold zones…

Heating cost savings
By evacuating excessive humidity, house heating gets much easier and effective, which generates important savings on your heating bills.

7 KEY ADVANTAGES OF CAT

1. Disinfects walls and ceilings, eliminates mould and condensation in glasses.

2. Eliminates odours as it renews indoor air permanently.

3. Enables to reduce cold air flows and differences in temperature between rooms.

4. Eliminates air elements that may cause allergies (pesticides, detergents, home-made products, pet hair…) and encourages the elimination of mites and termites.

5. Purifies environments filtering new compressed air.

6. Encourages the air expulsion by high vents and improves chimney flue.

7. With a simple construction concept, CAT is installed in an instant without the need for works.

ONCE INSTALLED, YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING, IT OPERATES AUTOMATICALLY

CUSTOMERS WHO SOLVED THEIR PROBLEMS OF CONDENSATION ONCE AND FOR ALL

When we started to suffer from damp problems at home, we tried all type of solutions: moisture absorbers, anti-mould paint, a dehumidifier… but none of these options solved the problem. Until MURPROTEC expert visited us and found a solution.

We installed a dehumidifier at home to get rid of damp, but it only solved the problem partially, in the room where it was placed. After that, we decided to trust in MURPROTEC and it was a complete success. Finally, we live without damp!
