Symptoms of Water Issues in Basements

When water is entering your home through the basement or crawl space, you’re likely going to notice. Maybe not right away, but with time, you’ll start to see some common symptoms of water entry. You’ll notice things like:

  • Wet floors or puddles
  • Dampness and efflorescence on walls
  • Mold or mildew growth
  • Stinky, musty odors
  • High humidity levels (or high utility bills)
  • Heightened asthma or respiratory issues

How Dehumidifiers Help

Professional dehumidifier installation can help make your basement or crawl space dry, clean, and usable once more. Dehumidifiers work by pulling water vapor from the air throughout the space and collecting it in a single basin. This will help to keep your home at a comfortable humidity level (typically, between 30–50% relative humidity is the sweet spot). The dehumidifier is then hooked up to a sump pump which expels water outside and away from your home’s foundation.

Our Products & Process

We offer only top-of-the-line, American-made products for all our home repair services, and that includes dehumidifier installation. We start by inspecting the space to find the perfect location for your new system. Once we’ve decided on the best place, we’ll hook the drainage line up and install the sump pump. After the entire system is set up and we test it, we’ll clean the area, ensuring it looks just as nice as it did when our team arrived.

We use Santa Fe dehumidifiers because they’re some of the top-rated products on the market. These energy efficient machines provide dedicated dehumidification to create a space that’s comfortable for your family but inhospitable to mold, dust mites, and other allergens.
