The need for a dehumidifier can be indicated by a variety of symptoms. If a basement is musty, the air is damp, or there is an odor within the area, a dehumidification system will reduce and eliminate any potential damage to the structure of the home and create a more comfortable living space free from mold and other allergens.
Other symptoms include mold that is present, and rotting or deteriorating fixtures.
There are multiple ways moisture can enter a home. Air can leak into a home through walls, roofs and floors. Saturated soil around a foundation is another way for moisture to enter the home and internal water use can also create moisture in the air.
