Crawl Space Dehumidifier
Mr. Basement installs Energy Star rated crawlspace dehumidifiers for homeowners in Maryland.
In addition to providing dirt crawl space vapor barriers and crawl space encapsulation, we also offer effective and affordable crawl space dehumidifiers. A dehumidifer is an essential tool in a complete crawl space encapsulation system. Humidity must be controlled and our dehumdifier from Santa Fe™ is made just for crawl spaces. We consider the crawl space dehumidifier to be the "cherry on top" of a crawl space environment which has WhiteCap® liner installed and all of the vents closed.
A dirt or vented concrete crawl space is a very bad idea! Why? The answer is simple - water. High humidity in the soil and air releases destructive water vapor which rises from the crawl space and upwards into the house environment, bringing along the air from the crawl space - which may include mold spores and odors.
Did you know nearly half of the air you breathe on the first floor of your home comes from the crawl space?
Wet Crawl Space
A wet crawl space or basement environment is very unhealthy and destructive. Mold thrives and reproduces by producing airborne spores by the millions, and some molds are toxic. Insects and critters of all kinds love damp environments and wet materials. Rot and decay occur in damp environments, causing unsafe and expensive structural damage.
Crawl Space Moisture
Your property may be in need of crawl space moisture control if you notice the following:
- Foul Odors in the Crawl Space
- Drafty or Cold First Level Floors
- Rotting or Uneven Flooring
- Mold, Mildew & Mushrooms
- Increased Asthma or Allergies
Please feel free to contact us if you would like more information about our crawl space dehumidifiers or to learn more about the installation process. Don't leave this area under your property wet and humid. This acts as the perfect environment for mold growth. Mold is very dangerous and can have a huge effect on your overall well-being. Don't jeopardize your family's health! Have your wet and humid crawl space taken care of as soon as possible to prevent future structural problems in addition to health issues.
