Crawl Space Dehumidifier
If your home has a crawl space, there is a high chance that it could accumulate a significant amounts of moisture. This causes multiple problems, including the build up of fungus, mold and mildew. This is where a dehumidifier can help. Crawl space dehumidifiers remove moisture in areas with restricted space and pump the water outside the building envelope. They also remedy complications that arise because of the moisture such as mold, mildew, wood rot and odor. When excessive moisture gets into your house through crawl spaces, a breeding ground is created for fungi, bacteria and other harmful microorganisms.
The most effective way of dealing with mold is to remove the excess moisture. Mold and fungi have a difficult time thriving in a dry environment. The crawl space dehumidifier works by drying and conditioning the air. By removing the moisture you also lessen the chance for wood rot, and eliminate bad odors.
Here a couple of examples in which a dehumidifier can help:
