15Too High Humidity
Quite a number of the dangers associated with humidifiers is particularly when they are set for too high of a humidity. Of course, these risks can also occur with lower settings, but they do tend to come up more often the higher the settings are. The ideal humidity
for most homes is around 40-55%.
Of course, the settings to use will depend entirely on where you live. Certain places will tend to be naturally more humid than others, and so it may be necessary to use lower settings to achieve ideal humidity. Being that in some places, natural humidity is pretty high and the family might want to consider getting a dehumidifier to actually reduce atmospheric humidity instead! The major reason why the family will want to regulate humidity, especially with a baby, is that there are several health risks involved. We’ll discuss all these risks individually.
