Control Basement Humidity with a Moisture Control System

Moisture in the home has many sources, including plants, pets, people, cooking, washing, ground water, and infiltration of outside air.

Whenever you have moisture levels above 55%, relative humidity can create musty odors and also stimulate the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria, and other biological allergens.

To avoid the problems caused by moisture, a dehumidifier is the first step when trying to maintain humidity in the healthy 45-50% range.

    When a dehumidifier isn’t enough to control your basement moisture problems, the best approach is to go after the source of the moisture by installing an active sub-slab depressurization system.

    This approach draws moist air from beneath the slab and reduces the amount of  vapor entering the home through openings in the concrete slab. This system also reduces the risk of radon and other soil gases from entering the home.

    However, before installing a sub-slab system, we always recommend that sump pump basins and interior drainage systems are installed to channel water away from the basement.
