Protect Your Crawl Space with a Dehumidifier
Crawl spaces can experience many different problems caused by water intrusion. Fortunately, there are many different waterproofing products to help protect your crawl space from water damage. A dehumidifier is a great option to protect your crawl space from damage caused by moisture in the air. It works around the clock to keep the air in your crawl space clean and dry, helping you avoid problems caused by water damage.

The Impacts of Humidity on a Crawl Space
Humidity can wreak havoc on your crawl space and is the main culprit for many crawl space problems. Based on the way they’re designed, crawl spaces easily let air in. Anytime that air contains humidity, it gets trapped in your crawl space and can cause condensation to build up.
As the condensation builds up, it creates an environment for mold and mildew to grow, and can create musty odors that can infiltrate your home. The stack effect is a phenomenon where the air inside your crawl space can seep up through the floorboards and enter your main living areas. If the air inside your crawl space is contaminated, it can make the air inside your home contaminated as well.
Our crawl space experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems know how to protect your crawl space from water damage. Our dehumidifiers work around the clock to keep the air inside your crawl space clean and dry so you no longer have to worry about problems from humidity.
