Did you know that as much as 50% of the air in your home comes up from your basement or crawlspace? That air is higher in relative humidity and carries with it various allergens and musty odors. When relative humidity levels are allowed to linger above 60% for a prolonged period of time, mold, mildew and bacteria growth is stimulated. This higher relative humidity can lead to costly structural damage due to the deterioration of building materials.
A dehumidifier is essential to decreasing the health risks associated with mold growth, as well as preventing costly structural damage. We utilize Santa Fe dehumidifiers to reduce relative humidity, improve air quality and prevent mold growth. All of the units can be ducted into your HVAC system to provide the most effective dehumidification available today.
