The Impacts of Humidity on a Crawl Space

In Cedar Rapids, uncontrolled humidity is one of the biggest threats to your home and your crawl space can be one of the weakest links. Traditional crawl space design doesn’t allow much airflow, which can increase condensation buildup and increase the risk of mold, mildew, and wood rot. The air in your crawl space circulates throughout your entire house thanks to something called the stack effect, so it’s not an out-of-sight, out-of-mind kind of thing. It’s vital that your crawl space stays clean and dry to protect your home and your family.

Our Cedar Rapids crawl space dehumidifier and waterproofing team at MidAmerica Basement Systems is here to take good care of your crawl space. We can recommend the best dehumidifier for your home, giving you priceless peace of mind around the clock.
