I am a book collector, as well as I want to talk a little bit about the importance of air quality to your books. I guess this blog post isn’t for all the people – however it’s for someone! You guess who you are. The people who appreciate books, not just reading them, however owning themâ€¦ People appreciate us appreciate nothing more than a room filled floor to ceiling with old books. The smell of them, to me, is intoxicating! The thing is, that without regular care as well as upkeep that intoxicating smell turns into a nauseating a single! Old books cannot get damp at all, or they mildew, mold, as well as rot, which brings me to the subject of indoor air pollen levels in your home, however your books will need a weird kind of temperature control than you need for your own personal comfort. The reason so multiple book collectors keep a separate room for their books is so they can adjust the temperature control for that room without the rest of the house. What is comfortable for you as well as I may cause long term destruction to your books, so keep them in their own room, as well as put a dehumidifier in there. Better yet, put two dehumidifiers in the book room, if not a portable AC component with a dehumidifier built into it. Moisture is the enemy, so keep a dehumidifier running 24/7 in your book room. Of course you also want to keep the temperature levels secure, however the truth is that with low enough humidity the temps don’t make that big a difference to the books.
