Case Studies

Garage Mold Prevention

Location: Ocean Isle Beach, NC

Problem: Customer had mold growth to the ceilings of their new beach house garage. They wanted the mold gone but better yet, they wanted to keep it from coming back.

Solution: First, we performed the mold remediation to remove the microbial growth currently present. Then we installed a dehumidifier in the garage. We suspended the dehumidifier from the ceiling. They did not want the dehumidifier to run when the garage doors were open and they didn't want to turn a switch off manually to shut off the dehumidifier manually. We wired a magnetic switch on each garage door so that when either of the garage doors would open, the dehumidifier would automatically shut off. When the doors were closed the dehumidifier would resume operation. We achieved this with the use of some additional controls, electrical wiring and a very good dehumidifier.
