You have to be careful about humidity, because you can cause mold growth.

Personally, I just offer baths several times a week.

Humidity should be at least 50%. Parrots like it 70-80% but that's not realistic inside a house.

Depends on the time of year too.... 40-50% is usually comfortable for humans but if you get too high in the winter it will cause a lot of condensation on the windows!

And fungal growth too. It's good to have some humidity,
but like you mentioned, you have to be careful about it.
