Crawl Space Dehumidifiers in Dayton, Cincinnati, and nearby areas

Moldy Floor Joist

The perfect environment for smelly mold and dust mites to thrive is created when the relative humidity levels in your home’s crawl space are at or above 60%. During hot summer months this level can quickly rise past 80% due to differences of temperature between the crawl space and the outside air, as well as condensation.

The first step to prevent and get rid of mold, is to encapsulate the crawl space. 

Encapsulating the crawl and providing proper drainage takes care of groundwater intrusion. Covering the vents takes care of outside air infiltration.

There is a third source of moisture that needs to be addressed: moisture from condensation. Very common in crawl spaces with HVC ducts and pipes, condensation happens when there is a difference in temperature between the crawl space, the elements within it, and the outside.

Dehumidification: the definitive solution for crawl space mold problems


The only way to keep your crawl space healthy year-round and maintain RH at safe levels is by running a good, energy-efficient dehumidifier. The best options are models that were specifically designed for crawl space environments, rather than generic, hardware store bought and portable models.
