Moisture accumulates in basements and subterranean spaces as the warm air from upstairs meets the cold, downstairs. Moisture can also penetrate through the walls of the surrounding ground, especially during the summer and early autumn, leading to high humidity levels in your basement. Excessive humidity can damage your home, resulting in costly repairs and remediation work. It also can affect the comfort of your home as mould, mites, and spiders thrive in damp areas.
A dehumidifier in the basement quickly, and energy-efficiently lowers the humidity level, eliminating the risk of moisture and mould problems. By keeping the relative humidity at about 50%, you ensure a pleasant and healthy environment for both the home and those who live in it.
