Mold loves moisture. One of most important benefits of dehumidifying a basement or crawl space is protection against a mold infestation. When wood and other organic materials remain damp because of high humidity, they create an ideal mold habitat. Effective dehumidification can prevent a damaging and hazardous mold invasion.
Have you ever experienced the trouble of mold or musty smells in your basement or crawl space?Here at Regional Energy Savers, we install state of the art dehumidifiers to help reduce the amount of moisture in your basement or crawl space. This can prevent the growth of mold and other musty odors and mildew.
High humidity levels can cause numerous problems. Moisture can saturate "fluffy" insulation, such as cellulose or fiberglass batts, will dramatically diminish the insulation’s R-value and adversely affect energy efficiency. Mold also feeds off of organic materials like wood, paper and even certain types of paint when they begin to retain moisture. The mold can spread by means of airborne spores. These microscopic organisms pose a serious health hazard. Musty odors and mold stains are telltale signs of excess moisture that is promoting mold growth.
Building components can lose their stability over time by means of mold growth or moisture damage. Wood can begin to rot and deteriorate and sheet metal, screws, and other steel elements can rust and wear down. Bugs like termites can even begin to feed off rotting wood, creating an even bigger problem. Let us prevent your mold and moisture issues by installing an energy efficient dehumidifier.
