🎯 Dehumidification. A desiccant dehumidifier is perfect to use when drying materials by lessening vapor pressure and humidity. In fact, it’s considered an effective method when you want to dry materials quickly while reducing the chance of mould development.

🎯 Seal the construction envelope. By doing this, you’ll be able to prevent water from entering the building. When sealing the building, there are proven methods you can do like installing water-tight windows, sealing all openings around windows, doors, and other areas, installing water-tight roofs, and using water-tight siding on the construction’s exterior.

🎯 Keep your materials dry. The site storage must be covered and dry to avoid moisture damage to good materials. For better results, consider storing the materials a few feet from the ground and under the roof. You should cover the materials with plastic sheets to keep them dry, but don’t cover them too tight because moisture may build up in time.
