A basement dehumidifier is very important for home owners experiencing basement mold & mildew odors. If your basement needs a dehumidifier you can count on our affordable systems that will keep your basement protected and won't break your budget. We provide dehumidifiers in tri-state area of Southern Illinois, Southern Indiana, and Western Kentucky. A basement dehumidifier controls humidity levels underneath a home. As a homeowner, you might not understand how crucial this system is or what basement humidity could do under your home if it isn't properly controlled. High humidity levels can trigger the growth of nasty black mold and bacteria. Mold needs three things to survive, which are water, humidity, and organic materials to feed off of. If you get rid of one of these "ingredients," mold cannot grow. No mold means improved air quality in your home, and it also means that your family won't experience a variety of serious medical conditions because of the fungus growth.
And research has shown that mold is responsible for many different health problems, including:
- Asthma attacks
- Respiratory problems
- Skin irritation
- Cold/flu-like symptoms
As you can see, it's very important to make sure that you don't have this incredibly dangerous fungus growing underneath your home and releasing spores up and into the air that you and your family (including your pets) breathe day in and day out.
You will know if you have high humidity levels under your home if you can physically see the mold growing on walls, floors, or boxes. It is typically dark green or black in color. Also, you may notice that boxes and documents you have stored here seem like they are falling apart or wilting.
