Indoor Humidity Control

Indoor Humidity Control in California & Arizona

humidity damage to a home in Calexico

Tearing out water-damaged drywall and replacing it with new materials will lead to future mold problems if even a small amount of moisture remains trapped behind the new wall material.

Structural wood framing should contain no more than 14% moisture (12% or less is ideal). As a comparison, firewood is dry enough to burn when its moisture content is 20% or less.

Flooding water deals enormous damage to a building. However, the worst of the damage is often not caused directly by the flooding itself.

Once the standing water has been removed, moisture will still exist in areas such as fiberglass insulation, drywall, carpeting, and within structural wood.

If this moisture is not dried and removed completely, it will encourage mold growth behind the walls and in enclosed cavities (closets, wall voids, cabinets, crawl spaces) within the building.

Other Types Of Humidity Damage

In addition to mold growth, building humidity will also enhance the growth of allergenic dust mites and health-compromising bacteria.

The dark, humid environment also provides an ideal habitat for a wide variety of pests, including cockroaches, termites, carpenter ants, rodents, wood-boring beetles, and some species of cricket.

If mold is allowed to grow, it can lead to severe damages to property values. In one study of toxic mold, the average discount for affected property was a 59% decrease in value.

Humidity Control & Drying Services in California & Arizona

Indoor Humidity Alert!

Some dehumidifiers on the market today attempt to keep your basement dry by blowing outside air into the home. This is a mistake!

100cfm of outside air, at a 70°F dewpoint, will bring in over 10 gallons of water every day. In your cool basement, this humidity condensates, providing ample moisture for mold growth.

Mold begins to grow almost immediately when there is sufficient temperature, moisture, and organic material present for mold to eat.

Additionally, long-term moisture in a building will lead to a variety of other serious problems, including warping wood, blistering paint, odors, and damaged electrical components of the home.

Saturated building materials may also release hazardous chemicals and gasses. If your home is experiencing flooding, it's vitally important that drying begins as soon as possible.
