Aurora in Illinois, has seen tremendous growth in the past 50 years. It has been ranked consistently since 2000 as one of the fastest growing cities in the US. With an annual precipitation of 40 inches, and with floods occurring in the Fox River valley and Blackberry Creek areas, Aurora basements have a tendency to be humid the whole year round.
Humid basements can foster the growth of fungi and mold, which can become lead to health issues if left untreated. Humidity can also damage electronic appliances and cause wood rot and weakening foundations.
