Hi. New here and I’m hoping somebody else here has had the same problem I’m having; humidity control without a) heating the room to Death Valley levels or b) buying portable de-humidifiers.
The scenario: I’m doing an indoor remodel in several rooms of our home which will require a variety of primers, paints, water-base and oil-base stains and topcoats.
Summer is coming to Northeast Iowa. 60-80% humidity is the norm. We don’t have central air.
My tiny shop stays in the 40-45% range because I leave some sawdust on the floor all the time and have left some of the old rafters exposed and unpainted to absorb humidity. an indoor sawdust layer isn’t an option as we have a toddler and we’ve already been to the ER once because she learned how to turn doorknobs and the first one she turned had a pile of sawdust under the (unplugged) table-saw and she sat down and looked up. Eye-washing a toddler is like giving two cats a bath in a toilet.
Anybody got some simple tricks?
