SYMPTOMS OF HIGH HUMIDITY
  • Mold & Mildew
  • Wood Rot
  • Musty Odors
  • Dust Mites
  • Rusty Duct Work
  • Insects and Pests
  • Buckling Floors
  • Damaged Woodwork
  • Wet Insulation
  • Sweating Windows
  • High Cooling Costs

High Humidity Causes Structural Damage

Wood rot in floor joists and support piers occurs when the moisture content is above the fiber saturation point, about 27% to 28% wood moisture content.

The 28% wood moisture content necessary for rot to occur happens when liquid water makes contact with the wood. This can happen due to water leaks, but the most common reason this occurs is relative humidity over 70% and spot condensation due to temperatures variances throughout a crawl space.

When the wood in the crawl space is damaged due to moisture, rot, or termites there is the potential that it can no longer bear the weight of the structure above.

High Humidity Leads to Pest Damage

Pests cause more structural damage to homes each year than fires and storms combined. There are many kinds of pests that damage property. Termites consume wood for nutrition. Carpenter ants hollow out wood for living space.  Pests are especially attracted to basements and crawl
spaces with structural and moisture problems.

Controlling the moisture that pests need to survive by dehumidification lessens the need for insecticides resulting in a healthier and safer home for your family.
