What Can a Dehumidifier Do For You?

Posted April 7, 2015

The snow and ice are melting, the birds are starting to chirp and warmer temperatures are setting in. While it’s a huge relief from the bitter-cold winter we had, the rapid thawing taking place may be causing an increase in moisture levels and, therefore, an increase in mold and mildew in your basement. So how can you combat this problem? Saturated grounds from melting snow and ice mixed with “April showers” is a recipe for disaster in your basement. Water seeping through the ground can increase moisture levels which can cause mold and mildew to form, but you can fight back with a dehumidification system.

Signs of Excess Humidity

  • Damp, musty smell
  • Condensation on the windows and stains on the walls or ceiling
  • Mold or mildew present
  • Decaying or rotting wood
If you notice any of these warning signs, it’s important to take action right away. Health concerns such as illness from mold, aggravated asthma and arthritis and reduced comfort in your home can all be caused from too much humidity.
