What is a Dehumidifier?
The most basic explanation is that a desiccant dehumidifier has a moisture absorbing wheel inside the unit. The wheel is made of silica gel – which is the desiccant (drying) element. Air enters the unit through an opening and travels through the silica gel impregnated wheel. When the air reaches the other side of the wheel, it is dry and then pushed out of the unit by a high static blower.
Bottom line: a dehumidifier is perhaps the most effective method available of controlling humidity and/or removing moisture from structural materials, hardwood flooring.
