Humidity is bad for your carpets
Singapore is an extremely humid country. Humidity refers to the level of water vapor that is present in the air. The higher the humidity, the higher the level of water vapor there is in the air. How does humidity affect your carpet?

Molds negatively impact your health in the long run. Mold produces allergen that affects different individuals in many different ways. Allergic mold reactions however trigger symptoms such as skin rashes, difficulty breathing and cold-like symptoms.
