Problems Humidity Can Cause In Your Home

Excessive humidity is not a problem to be taken lightly. The issues it can cause are practically endless. Some of the biggest problems excessive moisture in your home can cause include:

Water is a powerful force and can do a lot of damage. For example, water can make its way into insignificant cracks in your foundation. When the weather gets cold, the water will freeze and expand. When it melts, it leaves cracks a little bigger than they were before. As you can imagine, this happening over and over can take foundation cracks from negligible to significant.

Another big problem excessive moisture can cause is wood-destroying organism invasion in Elizabeth City. These organisms include several types of mold, as well as wood-destroying pests like carpenter ants and termites. While carpenter ants and termites will only destroy your property, certain types of mold that invade your home are quite toxic and can lead to skin issues and even respiratory problems.

Water can also simply rot wood all on its own, even if it doesn’t attract pests. Water can penetrate the fiber of wood, and consistent exposure will cause the water to sink deeper and deeper below the surface of the wood, eventually softening it and weakening its structure. For all these reasons, it’s vital to keep your home free from excessive moisture.

Our Dehumidifier Services

At Albemarle Termite & Pest Control, the first thing we do when we come out to treat your house is to perform an initial inspection where we will measure the moisture levels in the wood of your home. If the moisture levels are high, we’ll start the appropriate treatments to deal with them. These treatments may include installing vapor barriers and sealing foundation flaws like cracks and chips that can let in moisture. Once we get existing moisture issues taken care of, it’s time to introduce industrial moisture barrier products.

We offer two main types of dehumidifiers: the Santa Fe Compact and the Santa Fe Oasis. We’ll determine which is best for you based on the square footage of the area. These units work overtime to make sure that condensation and humidity do not lead to moisture buildup that can further damage your home. We’ll install the system, including all the plumbing and wiring for the unit, so you never have to worry about humidity again.

The manufacturer offers a warranty of two years, and they offer an extended maintenance plan that you can elect to purchase. We’ll come out to change the filter and adjust the settings to ensure the unit is working as expected. We also warranty our work for the first year, and we offer the option to extend the plan on a year-to-year basis so that you have convenient, worry-free moisture control for the life of the unit.

  • What can I do about excessive humidity?

    The best thing you can do if you have problems with excessive moisture is to rely on a professional moisture control company. Dehumidifying professionals can help you get rid of the moisture issues in your home and protect it from rot, pests, and more.

  • Will store-bought dehumidifiers get the job done?

    Store-bought dehumidifiers are not meant for big jobs like crawl space moisture control. These machines are typically made to pull the moisture out of the air in small spaces like closets, pantries, or a single room. They are not made for large areas or areas that experience extreme humidity, like your crawl space.

  • Can excessive humidity attract pests?

    Moisture control issues can absolutely attract pests. In fact, they can attract one of the most destructive pests on the planet: termites. Termites love moist wood, which means that moisture in your crawl space or the soil around your foundation can cause these damaging pests to come running. This is why ensuring your crawl space does not have moisture issues is so vital.
