Clean Home Essentials Mini Dehumidifier Review

Clean Home Essentials Mini Dehumidifiers

We decided to test out the Clean Home Essentials Mini Dehumidifier in a small bathroom with no windows or ventilation. With little ventilation, the bathroom becomes the perfect area for mold and mildew to attack all surfaces and make the time spent showering uncomfortable. Add a humid summer day and we have the perfect storm. This was the ideal time to see what the Mini-Dehumidifier can do.

Pluses:

  • Lightweight, compact and barely takes up any room.
  • Because of the poor ventilation there was a small problem with mold and air quality in the past, especially on those humid days. While running throughout the day, the mini-dehumidifier sucked up some of this moisture and provided much improvement in air quality.
  • After showering the walls and towels were always wet and damp for some time. After running the mini-dehumidifier, everything in the bathroom began to dry out at a quicker pace. Was great for drying out the towels so they weren’t still damp the next time they needed to be used!
  • An added plus while using the mini-dehumidifier throughout the day in a bathroom is it didn’t produce any heat and used very little energy cost as compared to larger dehumidifiers.
  • Very simple operation with on/off button.
  • Bucket is conveniently located on the front of the unit and is very easy to remove and replace.

Minuses:

  • Since the unit does not use a compressor, the small unit will struggle when removing the heaviest of the moisture.
  • No continuous drainage option.
  • Only suitable for a very small area.

Summary:

We were very pleased with how effective the unit’s unique Peltier technology performed in a small bathroom (despite the unit’s small size). It was perfect since there was no room to fit a large, bulky dehumidifier. We were impressed with how it helped with preventing mold, mildew and stuffiness especially after showering. Since this dehumidifier is so small in size it will not have enough power to remove large amounts of moisture compared to mid-sized models. However, when used properly it will get the job done in closets, wardrobes, RVs, bathrooms, pantries and other smaller areas with humidity issues.

    This is a great mini dehumidifier but having used a few others too I would recommend the Prem I Air. We had a damp and mould issue and it solved it, sucked lots of moisture out of the air, I was very surprised. I found http://www.minidehumidifier.co.uk/ very useful, give lots of free tips on how to reduce moisture in the home. Drying your clothes on radiators is a big no no, puts a lot of moisture back into the air. This is something we used to do, anyway you can get all the tips over at the site. Hope this helps a few people.
