Studies have shown that as much as 50 percent of the air in your home comes up from your basement or crawlspace. This air is often higher in moisture content and carries with it various allergens and musty odors. When conditions linger above 60 percent relative humidity for extended periods of time, mold, mildew, and bacteria growth is stimulated.
The American Lung Association, American Medical Association, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommend maintaining relative humidity levels in the 30 to 50 percent range. Ventilation and air conditioning alone cannot provide the protection offered by a high-capacity dehumidifier. Protecting your family and your biggest investment is worth the best.
