Protecting Your Carpet With A Moisture Absorber

By Angie Meza

In certain conditions it doesn’t matter what you try and do, rainwater will just get in under those French doors, from your patio or other troublesome areas. It may be that these were badly designed or it could be that the prevailing wind cannot be overcome and the water has to go somewhere.

You don’t want to have to dry out or even replace your carpet due to future water infiltration and you need to find a solution to this problem, pretty quickly. It can get very expensive, very quickly and a real problem to replace.

It’s the nature of architecture that sometimes the area immediately surrounding your home can be elevated and despite seemingly adequate planning, rainwater may seek to find its way into your home. There may be several options open to you, including the construction of a new drainage system, but you might want to look at a more flexible option, and purchase a moisture absorber or two to cope.

Emergency situations can arise without notice and water may threaten to penetrate your home and damage your carpet. It’s at this time that a moisture absorber can appear to be worth its weight in gold. Otherwise, you’ll have to raid the laundry room and get as many towels to roll up and use in your defense, as possible.

Summer storms in the tropical South can dump several inches of rain in a very short space of time. If you own a pool, you know how quickly this area can be overrun and how the drains will just get clogged. Your pool’s bathroom door and patio doors must all be protected by moisture absorber product to keep all that water from flooding into your house.

Corncob is a great moisture absorber and is contained within a typical product. It’s very flexible with long-lasting polypropylene cover and the solution can absorb up to 1000 times its own weight in water. Once your emergency is over you can let the product air dry and use them again in the future.

If moisture absorbers are called hurricane socks in the south, this should tell you how effective they can be in a serious storm situations. They have been proven in the heat of this kind of battle.

If rainwater can get in, wintry drafts may also infiltrate the same space and some people use the moisture absorber as a draft absorber as well, finding multiple uses for the same investment.
