Basement Dehumidifiers Prevent Humid and Damp Basements in Chicago, Illinois

So, you don't have a finished basement and you live in the Chicagoland or Northwest Indiana area. Then you don't have to worry about making sure that the area is dry, safe, and healthy, right? Wrong! When you have a leaky basement, it's going to make your whole home feel damp and smell musty (kind of like dirty gym socks). Perma-Seal continually stresses to homeowners that regardless of what you use your basement for, you need to make sure that it isn't humid, damp, or growing dangerous mold. That unhealthy air will make it's way upstairs since up to 50% of the air we breathe originates in the lower living space of the home.

Perma-Seal Products to be featured on the Today Show

Perma-Seal Products to be featured on the Today Show

Lots of things around your home require a back-up. For those with a basement, a sump pump is a must and a back-up for that unit is a necessity. Think about all you have down there and then about how most insurance companies either cap the amount they will cover or no longer offer flood insurance. The mistake that most people make is not matching up the backup pumps capacity to the main pump. If your primary pump moves 3,000 gallons of water and hour your backup unit needs to do the same. Another consideration is inspecting these systems on a yearly basis. Standard batteries need to be filled with water yearly, sealed batteries cost more but need no maintenance for 5 years. A good back-up system installed will cost around $2,500.00 but it is worth it. Call Perma-Seal at 800-421-7325 to schedule a FREE evaluation of your sump pump system.

The SaniDry XP For Better Air In Your Basement and Home

The Basement or Crawl Space – Damp and Humid

The one feature that sets the basement apart from other levels in your home is the ambient dampness. That’s not surprising is it?  After all, a deep hole was dug to accommodate the basement, and the earth is typically wet and cold (about 55 degrees Fahrenheit) year round. Solid concrete is a pretty good thermal conductor — it lets heat pass right through it — and is somewhat porous; is it any surprise that your basement or crawl space feels damp and humid? For years, cellars were built under homes with the full expectation that they would be a cool, wet space, not fit for habitation but ideal for root vegetables and vintage wines. Today, expectations have changed. People recognize the potential value of their below-ground space, be it a basement or a crawl space, and want to be able to use it confidently for storage, living, and even for entertainment purposes.
