When you have mold in your home or commercial property, thorough remediation is only half the battle. Once the mold has been completely removed and the contaminated area has been sanitized, it’s important to take extra steps to ensure that it doesn’t reappear. Mold prevention comes in many forms, and at Habitat Safe Solutions, our unique strategy involves heavy-duty dehumidification. Essentially, we install large dehumidifiers in basements or central air systems in order to deter the growth of mold. The small, portable dehumidifiers that you might find at your local home improvement store will only scratch the surface of your building’s moisture problem; in order to make a significant difference, you’ll need an industrial-strength basement dehumidifier from Habitat Safe Solutions. To have one installed, or to learn more about the perks of a home dehumidifier, give us a call today!
So, what makes a dehumidifier effective in preventing mold? Basically, in order for mold spores to grow into physical mold, they need only moisture and a food source—and since the wood behind your walls and the organic compounds in your wallpaper constitute a food source, mold spores really only need excess water to flourish. That’s why it’s important to eradicate moisture and humidity altogether with a home dehumidifier. Whether you opt for an isolated basement dehumidifier to target your biggest problem area, or you’d like to integrate dehumidification capabilities into your existing central air system, you can count on us for the dependable workmanship and swift results you need.
Habitat Safe Solutions is fully licensed and insured, and we offer outstanding installation for any type of dehumidifier. Mold prevention in the form of whole-house dehumidification is your best bet for stopping the growth of mold at its source, so don’t delay—contact us by phone or e-mail today to schedule an appointment.
