Dehumidification in Central Illinois
Our dehumidifiers improve air quality and control moisture damage
Mold loves moisture. One of most important benefits of dehumidifying a basement or crawl space is protection against a mold infestation. When wood and other organic materials remain damp because of high humidity, they create an ideal mold habitat. Effective dehumidification can prevent a damaging and hazardous mold invasion.
At PCB Insulators, we can install a quality dehumidifier to reduce humidity in your basement or crawl space.
Basements and crawl spaces are below-grade areas where high humidity levels can cause numerous problems. Moisture that saturates "fluffy" insulation like cellulose or fiberglass batts will dramatically diminish the insulation's R-value and adversely affect energy efficiency. Moisture also helps to promote the growth of mold on organic materials like wood, paper, and even some types of paint. Mold spreads by means of airborne spores. These microscopic organisms pose a serious health hazard. Musty odors and mold stains are telltale signs of excess moisture that is promoting mold growth.
Excess moisture can shorten the life of building components. Screws, sheet metal and other steel elements rust and deteriorate, while wood can succumb to rot, threatening the structural integrity of a building. Termites, powder post beetles, and other pests love wood with high moisture content.
