2. Ensure good ventilationGood ventilation is an excellent way to keep humidity and dampness at bay.Make it a habit to open your windows every day so that there is cross ventilation and good air circulation. Open windows allow indoor moisture to escape outdoors before it condenses.Keep furniture at least 2 inches from the wall so that air can circulate freely.
