Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality is sometimes disregarded in our home as a possible threat against our health. The quality of ventilation in the whole house is greatly disturbed by humid and damp basements or crawl spaces. Without proper air quality, the musty, moldy and humid air that are ensnared in the basement or crawl space turns out to be stagnant and can generate unpleasant smells as well as debilitated breathing situations in your homes and surroundings.
WHY DO BASEMENTS AND CRAWL SPACES TEND TO BE MUSTY?
One major cause is that heavy humid air settles in the lower areas of the home like the basement, and crawl spaces. Our everyday events such as washing the dishes, cleaning and showering can generate humidity inside our homes. Mold spores, pet dander, pollen, dust and other airborne elements present in the home tend to cling to the humid air as it settles.
Another additional straight cause for mustiness is the existence of basement leakage and crawl space inundating. Even if there are no visible threats of gathered water in the crawl space or basement, it is possible that hydrostatic force is allowing moisture to get through the foundation, causing humidity and as a result, poor interior air quality. (For further details on foundation leakages, contact Jet Dry Basement Waterproofing page).
HOW CAN MUSTINESS IN THE BASEMENT OR CRAWL SPACE BE ALLEVIATED?
A well-known system to prevent mustiness is by using a dehumidifier. Though a dehumidifier will lessen the dampness in your basement or crawl space, many dehumidifiers aren’t very strong and can add meaningfully to your electric bill. Dehumidifiers aren’t exactly constructed to take out mold, allergens, and other elements from the air, and it requires maintenance and cleaned regularly.
EZ Breathe Ventilation Unit in Basement
Jet Dry uses a power-improved and effective pattern to handle basement and crawl space humidity. Jet Dry will chase out the damp, humid, particle-choked air that stays in your basement or crawl space by generating a clean and healthy air ventilation system. The benefits of a fresh air ventilation system over a dehumidifier are that it controls wetness and wipe out mustiness from your home. Furthermore, the fresh air ventilation device is more power-efficient than a dehumidifier.
