Humidity in your yurt can come from bathing, cooking, hanging up wet clothing, and even breathing. How do you avoid mold, water droplets, and damp patches? Inspect the following places regularly:
- Interior ceilings
- Corners and places with little airflow
- Interior walls
Ways to reduce moisture on surfaces:
- Consider running a fan to increase air circulation and opening windows occasionally to vent moisture.
- Watch out for water if your yurt includes a cook stove or an interior shower. These are both activities that introduce large amounts of water vapor, so installing an exhaust vent in these areas will help expel the majority of moisture created.
- If your yurt is not insulated, or only has partial insulation, adding the full insulation package can also reduce the chance of condensation by not allowing the air to cool as rapidly once it reaches the exterior fabrics.
- Products such as Dry-Z-Air and dehumidifiers can help reduce the moisture content of the air inside your yurt, as well as charcoal briquettes, rock salt and DampRid.
