How to prepare for Winter damp Total Kit Car

It’s fast approaching winter, are you prepared for the damp that will ensue?

With winter comes the usual pitfalls of condensation, resulting in difficulties with damp, moisture build-up and mould.

Damp in the home can cause a variety of problems such as difficulty in drying clothes, a musty atmosphere and structural damage to your beloved home or property. Peeling or bubbles in wallpaper is unwanted, as is the hassle of drying clothes in an already damp environment.

Worse still are the other effects of damp, which lead to difficulties breathing, allergies deteriorating and other health issues.

There are a multitude of actions you can take to reduce the amount of damp in your home and remedy these negative effects.

Here are some simple steps you can instigate today to help:

  1. Ensure your property or home is properly ventilated, especially in rooms where your washing machine and tumble dryer are placed.
  2. It is often difficult to always commit in winter, but, if you do have dry weather, try and air dry your clothes outside rather than inside. In summer this is very easy to do and so there’s no excuse!
  3. When cooking it’s essential to utilise the extractor fan to reduce moisture build up in the air. A lot of moisture is created when boiling pans and the steam created can linger. Remember to keep it on for a little while even after cooking as this will help in reducing the residual moisture.
  4. It’s worth purchasing a similar extractor fan device for the bathroom, as condensation and moisture builds up after having baths and showers.
  5. Ensure your wardrobe or cupboards are not over stuffed with clothes or miscellaneous items. As with anything, if products or clothes are crammed together air can’t circulate around, increasing the likelihood of damp and a musty smell occurring.
  6. Another great tip is investing in a Meaco DD8L Zambezi Dehumidifer  There are many different models available, so it is worth exploring all versions to determine the best size and specification for you and your home.

It is essential to ensure you take the necessary measures to reduce the effects of moisture and damp in your home, especially with Winter on its way.

It’s fantastic to see our ‘How to prepare for Winter’ article in the latest Total Kit Car magazine, which you can read here.

IFA Berlin Round-up

The Meaco team had a fantastic time promoting the latest products at the IFA Consumer Electronics show in Berlin, arguably the world’s biggest and most important event to showcase the latest technology and innovation.

Meaco’s stand at the IFA 2017 featured our 3 Which? award winning dehumidifiers, including the Zambezi, and our ultra-quiet wall mounted dehumidifiers. It was hard to miss – not many stands featured a giant image of an African elephant!

In case you didn’t know, Meaco have teamed up with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation to help protect orphaned elephants in Zambia. A donation from the sale of each Zambezi product goes to help the work of the foundation and you can read more here. So far, we have already raised £21, 000 for the foundation.

Also, the MeacoClean air purifier was on display in the smoke chamber to demonstrate its multi-stage air purification, which proved popular with our stand visitors.

We had the chance to meet and catch up with buyers from Germany, Italy, Poland, France and Spain as well as our resellers from Norway and the Faroe Islands (pictured below).

A busy and tiring few days, but having beat last year’s enquiry level we couldn’t be happier!

Meaco 25L Low Energy Dehumidifier featured in ByeMould

“If Carlsberg made dehumidifiers they would surely make Meaco dehumidifiers!”MEACO 25L DEHUMIDIFIER FRONT

Great to see Meaco’s 25L Ultra Low Energy Dehumidifier featured on the independent dehumidifier expert website ByeMould.com following on from the feature of the MeacoWall Dehumidifier Range in August.

There is a lot of praise currently coming in for Europe’s first DC invertor dehumidifier.  The 25L won a Best Buy award from gadget experts T3 Magazine and also received Good Housekeeping Institute Tried and Tested approval in 2017.  People are appreciating the fact that this dehumidifier is so versatile.  It can be run quieter than any other compressor dehumidifier at just 41dB or can dry laundry faster than other dehumidifiers in it’s high speed laundry mode making it suitable for use in a wider range of applications from flats to 5 bedroom houses and museums and art galleries.

As the days become cooler getting close to winter, leaving clothes to dry indoors will encourage mould growth as well as making your home colder and increasing your heating bills. The 25L Low Energy can be used to safely and efficiently tumble dry clothes, preventing a build up of moisture. The ‘dehumidryer’ is also a cost-effective alternative to tumble dryers, as its unique DC inverter (the first in any domestic dehumidifier) runs at just 270 watts.

Take a look at our most energy efficient compressor dehumidifier, part of the award winning Meaco range.
