Controlling humidity levels within a structure is another element of Water Management as it impacts the overall health of the structure, as well as the living space. Excess moisture can result in damage to the wood components used in construction, can cause additional wear and tear on equipment within the property, and can cause damage to wood floors, trim work, furniture, and other personal belongings. Excess moisture can be noticed by the presence of musty odors, mold, and mildew. A dehumidification solution – basement dehumidifier, crawlspace dehumidifier, or whole house dehumidifier – will help establish and maintain a healthy home, a healthy basement, and may improve energy efficiency.
