When you think of a moisture absorber, what kind of product do you think of? Many people automatically think of a desiccant, those crystals that you find in miniature bags in your typical electronics box.
Others think of special products you can buy to hang in your wardrobe, to ensure that mold doesn’t form due to the dampness in the air. Marvelous products alike, but they’re hardly industrial-strength.
When real amounts of moisture threaten your home you need a moisture absorber that you can count on. What happens if you have a particularly leaky basement and you are approaching the start of the rainy season? You had better do something about it now, before mildew and mold filters into your house and starts to circulate in your bedrooms and living rooms.
The type of miniature moisture absorber that helps to keep natural dampness out of sensitive electronics is not suitable for heavy-duty jobs. For something like that, you need a product similar to polypropylene.
This has been proven time and again to absorb fairly large amounts of water, let alone moisture in the air.
