Why Does My Crawl Space Need A Dehumidifier

Your crawl space is likely a place you don't think to check frequently. Most crawl spaces are inadequately protected and don’t experience much airflow. As the seasons change in North Charleston, the moisture level in your crawl space will also change. As the humidity rises, you may notice a musty smell originating from your crawl space. High amounts of moisture in your crawl space encourages mold and mildew to grow. A dehumidifier can be used to decrease the moisture levels in the air. This can help reduce the chances of mold and mildew, enable you to breathe easier, and get rid of the moisture from the air in your crawl space.
