Excess moisture in the house is annoying as it attracts mold and mildew. This denies you an opportunity of having fresh air. Moreover, the excess moisture can damage your valuable furnishes and décor. Damprid is useful in trapping excess moisture and ensures that you’re enjoying a comfortable environment at all times.

What is Damprid?

This is a dehumidifier that doesn’t run on electricity. It’s an all-natural way of absorbing the excess moisture in your room to keep off bad odors, bacteria as well as prevent damaging of valuable possessions. Damprid utilizes crystals that absorb moisture in any area where moisture is a problem. It could be in your home, cabin, storage areas, boat, RV, car and many more. In the process, the optimal humidity level is created and maintained.

How does Damprid work?

The crystals absorb excess moisture and dissolve gradually into liquid brine, usually similar to a saltwater solution. It only absorbs excess moisture and doesn’t dry air to a level that can damage animals, plants or clothing. The proprietary formula used by this dehumidifier is septic safe and environment-friendly. 

The Damprid moisture absorbers operate in three phases;

Phase 1

Damprid Crystals absorb excess moisture in the air. They harden into a solid mass and begin to dissolve. Then, liquid brine begins dripping into its bottom chamber. It may take a few days before you notice dripping. 

Phase 2

Dripping begins into the bottom chamber due to accumulated moisture. About half to three-quarters of the crystals dissolve during the process.

Phase 3

Scented or fragranced Damprid moisture absorbers usually leave a small line of freshener beads in the top chamber. This should be discarded in the trash. The liquid in the basket is emptied into a toilet and a refill of the crystals is done.
