Dehumidification 101 | Greater Cincinnati, OH

Dehumidification 101 for the Greater Cincinnati Area

If you let excess moisture accumulate in your basement, your home is in for structural damage. A damp environment draws in mold, wood rotting, noxious odors, and critter and insect infestation. Having these problems linger for a while will negatively affect your basement’s health. To prevent structural damages from occurring, you need to ensure that your basement remains completely dry. But that is usually easier said than done. Fortunately, with our help at Healthy Basement Concepts, we are ready to teach you several tips on improving your home's basement or crawl space health and the simplest method to achieve that is through dehumidification.

Of course, a basement dehumidification system will solve a lot of your moisture problems, but you can still implement other methods to ensure that your basement stays dry The three simplest ways to do so include:

1. Searching and Sealing All Leaks

Some water and air leaks can be easily found when you are in your basement. Of course, hard-to-seal holes should be handled only by the experts. However, when dealing with large or small leaks, you can patch them yourself by using a few tools that can be found in your local hardware stores. For large leaks, you can fill the gap with polyurethane foam, which come in cans. Smaller holes, on the other hand, require to be filled with caulk or silicone. Acrylic latex caulk is also a good alternative, as it is much neater to work with than regular caulk.

2. Having Your Ventilation System Routinely Maintained and Inspected

It is important to maintain your ventilation system’s capability to keep the pleasant airflow circulating throughout your home. Should your vents stop functioning properly, it is possible that they will trap cold air inside your basement, especially during the winter months. For this task, it is in your best interest to contact the experts to have your system inspected. Sure, you can do simple repairs and checkups on your own, but if you want the procedure to be done correctly, let the professionals handle the task. You should also make it a habit to have your ventilation system regularly maintained and inspected. This ensures that your vents are working at their optimum levels at all times.
