If you have recently installed a humidifier in the home to cope with dry winter air and low humidity, you may need a period of up to three weeks before you start noticing a difference in your air quality. This is because the wood in your home, carpet, and even houseplants can all absorb the moisture created by your humidifier. Once moisture hits a normal level from the humidifier, you will notice the difference, but give the machine time to bring levels back to where they should be. Unfortunately, you may not be able to undo any damage caused by low humidity to sensitive woods on pianos, picture frames, and other items.
