Does your home have a problem with high humidity? If you know the signs, then it won’t be hard to tell if it does. A humid home will be uncomfortable, damp, and will often have an unpleasant musty odor. Beyond all the surface-level annoyances though, a humid home can be very dangerous. High levels of moisture in your home can make it an ideal breeding ground for dangerous mold and mildew, which can cause serious health concerns. It may seem like something that you can ignore, but it’s smart to address these problems quickly.
We Have the Solution!
The first step in controlling humidity is always going to be addressing the root of the problem. There are many different things that could be causing the humidity in your home, meaning there are many different potential solutions. Crawl Space Encapsulation is a popular choice, since high humidity can often be traced back to the crawl space. In short, crawl space encapsulation is the process of sealing your crawl space off from outside elements—mainly moisture and pests.
When the root of the issue is addressed, you’ll then need to regulate the humidity over time. The best way to do this is with one of our dehumidifiers. Foundation RESQ offers dehumidifiers that offer superior capacity compared to residential models. They’ll remove up to 135 pints of water every single day and can cover areas as large as 5,000 square feet. When you have one of these machines installed, you’ll have the peace of mind you need about the health of your home.
