The demands of keeping documents protected during storage go beyond having a secure facility. Storage conditions that are too damp can encourage insect pest activity and the growth of mould.
Books, documents and other archived media are hydroscopic, meaning they absorb and release moisture. The materials expand and contract depending on the temperature and relative humidity. The more environmental changes the documents experience, the more vulnerable they are to accelerated deterioration. High humidity levels also encourage mould growth and offer an ideal environment for insects.
A dehumidifier from Drying Rooms UK works to remove moisture from the air and allows the maintenance of a constant temperature and relative humidity level.
The high-performance dehumidifiers recirculate the air and physically remove moisture from it. This alleviates the need to continuously reheat incoming air. Not only that, the units convert energy taken out of the room as moisture to provide useful heat to warm the room, accelerating the drying process.
Our dehumidifiers provide an efficient and cost-effective alternative to drying using heat alone. The potential energy savings are huge as every unit of energy that our dehumidifiers consumes, it will convert 2.5 times this amount to usable heat. In fact, compared to traditional heat and ventilation energy, cost savings of 75% are not unusual.
You can turn any room into a drying room just by using one of our dehumidifiers. Installations can be straightforward, as it only requires positioning, connecting a power supply and drain. The units have combined heating and drying so there is no need for separate heaters, fans and extraction systems.
Drying Rooms UK are able to supply dehumidifiers in a range of sizes to suit any space. Whatever you need, we have the drying solution for you.
