Crawl space humidity control questions & answers

How do I lower the humidity in my crawl space?

You can lower the humidity in your crawl space by installing a vapor barrier and dehumidifier. A vapor barrier works by preventing groundwater seepage from evaporating into the crawl space air. Our vapor barrier comes equipped with a 25-year warranty against rips and tears and prevents mold growth. A dehumidifier keeps humidity levels low and prevents moisture buildup over time.

What is the ideal humidity level for a crawl space?

It is important to ensure that the humidity level in your crawl space does not exceed sixty percent. In general, humidity levels in your crawl space should fall between thirty and sixty percent in order to maintain the health and structural integrity of your entire home.

If the humidity level in your crawl space surpasses sixty percent, you run the risk of attracting pests, mold growth, bacteria, and other environmental allergens. These contaminants can then result in wood rot, musty odors, and even structural damage down the road.

Will a dehumidifier dry out my crawl space?

A dehumidifier can help stabilize humidity levels in your crawl space and keep moisture to a minimum. However, if you have standing water in your crawl space, a dehumidifier alone is not going to cut it. If you find that a dehumidifier isn't doing the trick, you may want to invest in a crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation system expertly installed by The Drying Co..

Why shouldn't I use a store-bought dehumidifier to control crawl space humidity?

There are plenty of dehumidifier options available on the market. However, the problem with purchasing a dehumidifier from a store is that it may not be a good fit for your crawl space. So much can go wrong when it comes to selecting the right dehumidifier for your crawl space.

Instead, you should consider investing in our SaniDry Dehumidifier. With an auto humidistat, the unit shuts off when relative humidity is achieved, saving you money on energy costs. This differs from standard store-bought dehumidifiers, which can be major energy wasters.
