Mould and Dehumidifiers
January 18th, 2019
Dehumidifiers are an excellent resource to combat the dampness of wet basements or leaky basement, particularly in the humid, summer temperatures. However, dampness does occur during the coldest months of the year as well.Dehumidifiers work well for diligent home owners who are willing to empty the dehumidifier multiple times a day to control the build-up of dampness in a wet basement.
They work best under the best of conditions as well. If your basement is essentially crack-free, mould-free, and well ventilated then a dehumidifier can be a homeowners’ best friend.
However, dehumidifiers simply mask the problems that linger in our basements where problems already exist. Mould can form quickly in damp basements. Basement mould removal in places like Collingwood, Gravenhurst, and Keswick is often the answer to your mould problem. No matter how many hours a day you run and empty a dehumidifier, it does not have the power to fight existing mould and moisture damaged wet basements.
A damp smelling and mouldy basement negates pride in your home and makes it difficult to live in wet basements that lead to mould. Basement mould removal can be essential in areas like Wasaga Beach, Muskoka Lakes, and Lake of Bays. Mould can form in any season, hot or cold, because it forms as a result of wet basements due to foundation cracks or leaky basements.
Dehumidifiers can help until help arrives; basement mould removal is essential to ensure the complete removal of the toxic growth of unwanted mould.
