Studies have proven that increasing humidity levels to 43 percent or higher significantly decreases the ability of airborne viruses to cause flu infections. In conditions of low humidity, nearly eighty percent of viruses can transmit the disease through the air. When relative humidity is maintained within the optimum range, that number drops to only fourteen percent. Achieving a safer home environment is both simple and cost effective.
