Crawl Space Dehumidifier
Crawl Space Dehumidification Service Atlanta
Healthy Air can provide your home with a crawl space dehumidifier. A lot of homeowners have probably heard of dehumidifiers before, but they might not be sure what these systems do or why they would be installed inside of a crawl space. A dehumidifier functions by reducing the humidity levels in the air. When you have a humid crawl space, it can cause a lot of problems. If you don’t have a vapor barrier installed, it’s likely that this area under your home has humidity problems. Remember, a vapor barrier and a crawl space dehumidifier go hand-in-hand to prevent the build up of mold. Humid crawl spaces can cause damage to wooden materials, including support beams and floor joists. The extra moisture in the air causes the wood to warp and bend out of shape. Needless to say, this is going to cause problems for the structural integrity of your home if left neglected for too long. Also, a crawl space which has high humidity levels can foster the growth of mold and bacteria. View the areas we serve here.
What is Crawl Space Mold
There are a lot of homeowners who think that crawl space mold isn’t a problem since it’s underneath their home. However, if you have mold growing inside the crawl space under your home, it will release spores into the air and this air will make its way up into the inside of your home. You, your loved ones, and even your pets will breathe in this musty air, and it can cause a variety of health problems including: asthma attacks, breathing problems, coughing, headaches, rashes, sinus infections, fatigue, and many other medical conditions you shouldn’t have to deal with. It’s important to note that mold often affects young children and the elderly the most.
When your home has crawl space mold, it will be a black or dark green in color. It can grow on the crawl space floor, walls, or even on the utilities and wiring you might have underneath your home. Your home is likely your biggest investment, so you need to be sure that you’re doing everything you can to keep it safe and protected from harm. One way of doing so is to have a crawl space dehumidifier and a vapor barrier installed.

We recently moved into a new house and the crawl space was very moist and unusable. We had the guys at HealthyAir come and put in a vapor barrier to seal it off. They recommended we use a dehumidifier and insulation to really make it protected for good. We can now use it for our extra storage.
