  1. Ventilate areas that create moisture like the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room. Ventilation is more effective when directed out of the house. 
  2. Take shorter or cooler showers to minimize steaminess. 
  3. Keep your kitchen concoctions covered with a lid when possible. 
  4. Open a window to let moisture out of the bathroom, kitchen, or other steamy rooms. 
  5. Turn on your heat or air conditioning. 
  6. Make sure your HVAC condensation lines are clear and not trapping excess moisture. 
  7. Avoid overwatering house plants and consider moving plants outside for a few days. 
  8. Remove rugs and carpets temporarily or permanently. Their fibers can hold onto a lot of moisture. 
  9. Keep rainwater outside with clean gutters and downspouts, and landscaping that slopes away from the house. 
  10. Consider a dehumidifier for a damp basement or a bathroom without sufficient ventilation. 

Putting these tips to work in your home will surely help you get a sticky humidity problem under control. You might be surprised how a few small adjustments can make a big difference!
