Maintaining healthy air in your home is one of the most important things you can do. As part of any of our basement waterproofing and even crawl space encapsulation systems, we will recommend the installation of a humidity control and air filtration system. These systems are designed to prevent the humidity from getting to an unsafe level. When the humidity is at a high level, it will help facilitate the growth of mold and mildew which can cause serious health risks to your family. A proper dehumidifier can keep these levels under control and prevent this from happening. When coupled with an air filtration system, you will notice a reduction in musty odors as well.
In the past, people have just accepted that your basement or crawl space is supposed to be musty or damp, but this just is not true. That musty smell can actually be an indicator of high humidity and excess moisture that are encouraging the growth of mold in your home. This space, if untreated, can also harbor allergens which can increase the level of indoor pollution in your home. The Environmental Protection Agency has stated that indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks and this is one that can be easily controlled through the use of one of our dehumidifiers.
