Basement Dehumidification Techniques in Columbus, Ohio

If you want to take care of your basement and home foundation, you have to make an effort to dehumidify your property regularly. Moisture is your basement’s worst enemy, and leaving the area damp leads to several more serious threats such as:

  • Mold Growth
  • Wood Rotting
  • Foul Odors
  • Vermin and Insect Infestation

You might think that keeping your basement dry is difficult, but it’s really not. All you need is the right knowledge, good sealants and the sense to call the professionals when the situation gets tough.

Seal Air Leaks Immediately

When your basement moisture problem comes from air leaks, you can close the holes using sealants you can buy in hardware stores. Air leaks invite cold air in, and when the air warms up, it leaves the area damp. If you’re dealing with small gaps, you can use caulk or silicone to fill them up. Use high-temperature caulk if the holes are located in hot surfaces like your furnace or vent pipes. You may also use acrylic latex caulk for neater sealing jobs. To seal bigger air leaks, use canned polyurethane foam.

Have Your Ventilation and Ductwork Systems Maintained Regularly

Allowing damaged vents and ductwork to stay operational can be troublesome. Broken systems come with air leaks that could raise your basement’s moisture levels.  Make it a habit to have your ductwork and ventilation systems professionally maintained. Annual checks ensure that your systems run as efficiently as they possibly could. The pros are not only equipped to take care of your systems’ problems -- they also have the know-how in help you prevent future damage.
