A crawl space isn’t just a void beneath your living spaces. It can be a sanctuary for cherished mementos, your laundry room, the ultimate workshop, or a cozy family room. But here’s the kicker: that multipurpose space can also be the root of health problems for everyone in your home. The causes of these problems are often unseen—water seepage, dampness, and sneaky humidity.
With years of experience in waterproofing and crawl space repair, we at Crawl Space Brothers specialize in conquering that pesky dampness. Our top-tier basement dehumidifiers are your reliable solution, ensuring your crawl space stays as wholesome as the memories you make above it.
When considering the overall health of a home, basements and crawl spaces often fly under the radar. Yet, unchecked humidity within them can lead to serious repercussions for both your home and your health.
Humidity can rapidly transform a crawl space into a fertile breeding ground for bacteria. These microorganisms flourish in environments with abundant moisture, warmth, and organic material (like wood, drywall, or carpet). And once they set up shop, they can spread and compromise your home’s safety.
It’s not just bacteria that find humid basements appealing. Creatures like rats, snakes, termites, and cockroaches are attracted to such conditions. Their waste is known to aggravate respiratory illnesses and is a known trigger for asthma, making it a significant health concern.
These nuisances are a common allergen for many homeowners. Dust mites love the warmth and moisture of a humid environment. As they populate inside your home, they can intensify allergic reactions, particularly those affecting the respiratory system.
Mold is arguably the most insidious result of high basement humidity. Beyond the visible damage to surfaces, mold spores can circulate within your home via HVAC systems or the “stack effect.” This leads to unpleasant odors and poses significant health risks, including allergies and other respiratory issues.
Crawl Space Brothers understands these challenges deeply. Our specialized basement dehumidifiers are expertly designed to tackle these very issues, offering homeowners peace of mind and a healthier living environment.
When it comes to ensuring a healthy crawl space, addressing water issues is paramount. Before even considering dehumidification, it’s essential to rectify seepage concerns with professional solutions such as basement interior or exterior drain tile systems, exterior waterproofing membranes, and other crack repair techniques. Moreover, it’s vital to address external factors contributing to water build-up, like faulty gutters and poor foundation drainage.
Our basement dehumidifiers aren’t just regular units. These powerful devices are designed to cater specifically to expansive areas like basements and can extract 110 pints of water daily. That translates to over 13 gallons of moisture removed from your crawlspace!
A basement dehumidifier’s efficiency isn’t just about the product but also its installation. While DIY methods might seem appealing, a professional touch guarantees optimal functionality and long-term savings. This is where Crawl Space Brothers comes into play.
