Dehumidifiers for Moisture Control in Rochester New York by Crawford Basements

Dehumidification Techniques in Rochester and Buffalo, NY

If moisture is a prevalent problem in your property, it’s a good time to start dehumidifying your building. Humid air holds excessive moisture, which increases the risks of developing water-related property damage like:

  • Spore growth
  • Dry rot
  • Foul smelling odors
  • Bacterial and pest infestation

Thankfully, there are several methods to dehumidify your property. Majority of these processes need to be done by professionals, but there are some that you can do on your own.

Address Your Air Leak Problem

Air leaks invite cold air into your property, so it’s best that you seal them quickly. You might need to call the experts to seal difficult holes, but there are air leaks you can cover on your own. For larger leaks, you can use canned polyurethane foam. For smaller leaks, use caulk and silicone. If you want to work with a neater material, choose acrylic latex caulk. It’s also good to have high-temperature caulk in hand to plug up pipes that run along hot surfaces, like furnaces. All of these materials are found in your local hardware stores.

Inspect Your Ventilation and Duct Work Systems

Worn out and overused vents and ducts disrupt the pleasant airflow that circulates in your property. Sometimes your damaged ducts or vents leave cold air trapped in the basement and make the entire area damp. For this method, it is best to let the professionals inspect your systems. The experts know what to look for in malfunctioning vents or ducts. They also have the equipment to repair any damage.

Install a Basement Dehumidifier and Sump Pump

If your basement is constantly accumulating moisture, installing a basement dehumidifier and sump pump will solve all your water-related problems. A basement dehumidifier extracts the humidity in the air, while a sump pump sucks water from the basement floor and drains it away from your property. Both the dehumidifier and sump pump work efficiently and quickly.
