High Levels of Moisture in the Crawl Space and the problems it causes in Detroit, Ann Arbor, Troy & nearby
When Relative Humidity levels surpass 60%, mold and dust mites start to proliferate. Warm and humid environments also allow termites, carpenter ants and other pests to occur.
Crawl spaces that feature vents or that haven’t received proper encapsulating treatment tend to become humid. These issues must be corrected in order to prevent groundwater and humid external air intrusion, the two main sources of moisture. Furthermore, water vapor condensation can act as a third source of moisture when there is presence of air conditioner ducts or hot water pipes in the crawl space.
Dehumidification: the definitive solution for crawl space mold problems
Running a good dehumidifier in your crawl space will keep RH levels under control, ensuring the air you breathe in your home is safe and healthy, forget about mold and bad odor.
Instead of opting for generic, hardware store or portable models, you should choose a device specifically designed for crawl spaces and basements.
