Many basements are prone to excessive moisture due to a variety of construction and environmental factors. The most common issues we find are ineffective grading around the home, a lack of properly functioning gutters or downspouts and inadequate ventilation.

Basement Ventilation Systems
Basement ventilation systems condition or exchange the air in the basement
to regulate temperature and moisture content. These systems may work off
of exhaust and intake fans, dehumidifier systems, or a combination of both.
Exhaust and intake fans exchange the air in the basement with fresh air from outside of the home when the conditions are favorable.
Basement dehumidifier systems may be necessary in excessively damp basements, or where outside air exchange may not be possible. Installing a basement dehumidifier system removes excess moisture from the air.
Both basement dehumidifier and ventilation systems work to dry and circulate air throughout the basement to create an environment that does not contribute to mold growth, eliminating that musty basement smell.
