Why Does My Crawl Space Need A Dehumidifier

Your crawl space is probably a place you don’t think to check very often. Most crawl spaces are poorly insulated and receive a minimal amount of airflow. As seasons change in North Charleston, the humidity level in your crawl space will change as well. As the moisture levels rise, you may notice a musty or rotting odor coming from your crawl space. High levels of moisture in the air are the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. A dehumidifier is used to reduce the humidity levels in the air. This can help reduce mold and dust, help you breathe easier, and eliminate moisture from the air in your crawl space.
