Genuine leather clothes, accessories and furniture are stylish, but often very expensive. Unfortunately, the porous surface of leather makes it highly susceptible to mildew buildup in humid climates if it's not properly cared for. 

Mildew can grow on an wet surface under the right conditions. Leather naturally consists of mold friendly nutrients, so to avoid mildew growth on expensive leather products, you should take proactive measures to keep the material clean and dry.

Typical humidity levels in Singapore may hit as high as 90% RH and this is bad for storage of leather goods. The leather will lose its luster due to discoloring, mold growth and bad odors. These damages not only affect the value of your luxury bags, it is also a waste of effort and money to restore its beauty.

Therefore it is essential to invest in a reliable dehumidifier to preserve the quality and value of your luxury goods
