Mold & Dust Mites love humid basements!
Relative Humidity (RH) is the measure of vapor water in air. When RH levels rise above 60%, mold and dust mites are allowed to thrive.
These creatures are harmful and their presence can be indicated by the typical musty smell they produce, even when they’re still not visible. Mold releases spores into the air, while dust mites produce droppings, all of which are carried up by air currents, into your living spaces. Breathing these particles can cause allergies and afflictions.
Get Rid of Smells and Allergens by Controlling Humidity
Mold and dust mites need three things to thrive: warmth, organic matter and humidity. Controlling humidity is enough to make sure these pests can’t thrive in your basement. Luckily, it’s the easiest out of the three factors to keep under control.
With a good basement dehumidifier, RH levels will be always at safe levels, which means any existing mold and dust mites will dry out and die, and no more will appear. Soon after installing a dehumidifier, you will feel the air in your home become fresher, lighter and easier to breathe.
