Mold, Dust Mites, and Odors Eliminated in Youngstown & Boardman, Ohio
Just because you have a foundation waterproofing system, doesn’t mean your foundation is completely dry and free of moisture. If your basement or crawlspace doesn’t look, feel or smell dry, it’s probably not and this means mold, dust mites, and odors are most likely present.
You could be unaware that your foundation is damp and acting as a breeding ground for mold, dust mites, and odor-causing damage. Condensation is usually present if outside air is warmer than indoor air, especially if it’s humid outside. Subterranean-level homes carry the most damage from humidity because the relative humidity of air increases by 2.2% for every degree you cool it. But, because basements and crawlspaces are below ground, they’re usually cooler, and since air flows upwards, it has the ability to escape through higher levels with new air being absorbed in the lower levels.
If the outside temperature is 80 degrees with relative humidity of 80% and we suck this air into our basements or crawlspaces and cool it to 68 degrees, the Relative Humidity goes up by 26.4% (12 degrees x 2.2%). But, 80% plus 26.4% is more than 100%, and we can’t have more than 100%! Instead, condensation occurs as the air becomes saturated, giving up its moisture to cold foundation walls, floors, water tanks, pipes, and other cold entities, making your basement or crawlspace the perfect place for odor and mold to grow. Dust mites also love high relative humidity levels.
Moisture Control Through Dehumidification
To eliminate condensation, you must remove water and moisture from the air which can be done quickly and efficiently with our energy-efficient, industrial-strength Dehumidification Systems. Without the proper equipment, it’s nearly impossible to completely remove all water and the potential for mold, dust mites, and odor.
Our Dehumidification System will effectively remove humidity and moisture from the air and it will give you the outcome you’re hoping for!
