Mold & Dust Mites Love Humid Basements!
Mold & dust mites thrive in environments where Relative Humidity levels reach or exceed 60%. Even though they are invisible, the effects of their presence can be felt through musty odors and, most important, through the impacts they can have on the air quality inside your home.
Dust mite droppings and mold spores are both major causes of indoor allergies. Due to the air in your home naturally flowing upwards, the contaminated air in your basement will eventually end up flowing upstairs through your living space, putting you and you family at risk for allergies and respiratory problems.
Get Rid of Smells and Allergens by Getting Rid of Moisture!
Mold and dust mites depend on three things to develop: warmth, organic matter and moisture. The latter is the one factor you can effectively control.
Running a good basement dehumidifer will help keep Relative Humidity levels under 60%, impeding mold and dust mite development and causing any that are already present to dry out, ceasing air contamination through spores and droppings. The air in your basement will be filtered and purified, turning it into a more healthy, pleasant and fresh-smelling environment.
