    Humidity

    I have never experienced humidity levels like these last few days.
    The floors always feel damp. Windows and mirrors are constantly fogged. The walls are starting to look mouldy. Is this just a short phase or does it last a whole season? How do people cope? I have closet dehumidifiers but looks like I need something more heavy duty now. Any suggestions?

    Thanks sourcing and Ewee.
    I've turned on the airconditioning as no amount of mopping up seems to do the trick.
    Where's a good place to buy a dehumidifier? I dont even know what it looks like.

    Fortress. Get the highest capacity (in terms of litre) and quietest one you can afford.

    ParknShop is selling a 20L one for $1200. Not sure if that's a good price. We need a couple in the bedrooms.

    $1200 for 20L is very good. But do check the noise level. Bought a Philips that's so noisy and irritating that we had to give it away.
