Once you have one of our experts from Fresh Air Technologies schedule a service to remove your mold and moldy insulation in your home crawl spaces, we then recommend that our clients use home crawl space dehumidifiers to help regulate moisture in their residential crawl spaces. Crawl space dehumidifiers help to combat high humidity which can cause mold issues, insect infestations, rotting wood and structural damage, and even allergy problems in your home. We recommend choosing top-rated dehumidifiers specifically built for preventing destructive moisture from developing with an automatic defrost system.
If you or any of your family members suffer from allergies or asthma, it is even more crucial to keep the humidity and air quality of your house under control. Installing ventilation and especially purchasing a crawl space dehumidifier for your Charlotte crawl spaces is a future investment in maintaining good air quality in your home.
Before installing your crawl space dehumidifiers, be sure to call us to ensure that water levels and mold are under control. A dehumidifier cannot fix current issues of severe mold damage or standing water in home crawl spaces. However, once we have cleaned out the space and resolved any water entry issues, a dehumidifier will then be an excellent choice for maintaining the future moisture levels in the crawl space and preventing any other mold or moisture damage from occurring.
Depending on the size of your crawl space, you will need to purchase home crawl space dehumidifiers that will be able to regulate humidity accordingly. If you own a smaller crawl space, you can use a standard dehumidifier to do the job with a cost of about $200 to $300 dollars. However, if you have a medium to large sized crawl space, it will be necessary to purchase a more advanced dehumidifier model. Regardless of which type of home crawl space dehumidifiers will best suit your needs, installing a crawl space dehumidifier is one of the best options for maintaining the indoor air quality of your home’s encapsulated crawl space and will give your home the appropriate level of moisture.
