Crawlspace dehumidification refers to the process of reducing the humidity levels in a crawlspace area beneath a building. Crawlspace areas are prone to high humidity due to their proximity to the ground, lack of proper ventilation, and potential moisture intrusion from the surrounding soil. Excessive moisture in the crawlspace can lead to various problems, including mold growth, wood rot, and damage to the structural integrity of the building.
You can tell when there’s too much moisture in your home’s air. When the humidity of your space is wrong, you can see it, feel it and smell it. In certain parts of your home such as the basement or crawl space, where there will be greater dampness, installing a dehumidifier can really make all the difference, which is why we recommend crawlspace dehumidification to prevent excess humidity.
Crawlspace dehumidification is the process of reducing and controlling the moisture levels in a crawlspace area. Crawlspaces are prone to high humidity due to their proximity to the ground, limited ventilation, and potential moisture intrusion from the surrounding soil.
A dehumidifier helps by maintaining an ideal relative humidity (RH) level within the living space. When damp air enters the dehumidifier, a fan forces the air over cold coils in order to remove moisture and then the drier air is blown back out into the basement or crawl space. Additionally, by maintaining the humidity levels you can reduce the growth of mold and mildew, making a safer environment for you and your loved ones.
