When the temperatures are too high, the normal temperature regulations of the body are interfered with.
- Protects furniture
Usually, you will find that most wood materials lose and gain moisture from its surroundings which is mostly affected by temperature. This is also known as warping the wood. Too humid environments will also cause leather to absorb most of the moist air and cause it to rot.
