Wood remains a living thing, even after it has been turned into furniture, flooring or a musical instrument. It is for this reason that a stable humidity level is vital during the heating season. Mobile humidifier systems preserve and maintain the shape, function and value of the processed wood.
Sometimes wooden instruments have minds of their own. When it is cold outside but warm inside (thanks to indoor heating), the sound of the violin becomes grating and the piano goes out of tune. Wooden furniture would join the ensemble if it could. However, wood is of a quieter nature; it "goes out of tune" by showing unsightly cracks or gaps. This is especially true with antique wooden furniture. Drawers are reluctant to open and cabinet doors stick.
Ventilation alone is not enough
Damage like this is particularly frequent during the heating season, as the room air is not sufficiently damp. Dry room air "steals" moisture from all living things, including wood. Much like skin dries out and becomes brittle, wooden surfaces and objects also become damaged if deprived of moisture. Ventilation in winter brings fresh oxygen into the rooms but does not bring in the desired level of moisture. In fact, it does the opposite. Cold outside air makes the climate indoors even more dry because it can only absorb and transport so much moisture.
Mobile humidifier systems outsmart the dryness
Air treatment appliances take a preventive approach which keeps the relative humidity level stable between 40 and 60 percent. In doing so, the appliances provide the best air quality in indoor spaces and maintain the health of people, animals, plants and wooden objects. BONECO offers mobile humidifier systems such as HYBRID, Air Washers, Ultrasonics, Steamer and Evaporator that quench the thirst of dry air.
