Importance of controlling humidity in your basement

No matter if your basement is finished or unfinished, those humid conditions can encourage the growth of mold, mildew, and other bacteria. According to experts, controlling humidity inside the home is essential for comfort, reduced health risks, and property protection.

Your Basement Smells Musty

Musty odors are typically a result of high humidity levels in the basement. This polluted air below the house will eventually move to the rest of the house, carrying musty odors and other contaminants. Specifically, musty odors in your home come from the off-gassing of mold spores when they feed on organic materials. Solve the moisture problem and you will solve your mold problem.

How do dehumidifiers work?

In the simplest of terms, dehumidifiers regulate humidity by removing moisture from the air. This creates living spaces that are comfortable to you but inhospitable to dust mites, mold and other allergens.
