Ask Adam: How Dry is My Basement?

How Dry is My Basement?

This has been one of the wettest seasons in a long time. It doesn’t stop there, the forecast calls for more rain. Unfortunately, many homeowners and business have lost thousands of dollars in damages due to flooding.

There is nothing that can be done to prevent catastrophic weather conditions. But there are things that we can do to prevent normal basement and crawl space issues. If your house has a sump pump then the most important item that you should install is a professional grade battery backup system.

A pro series back up pump will protect against:

  • Power outages
  • Float switch failures
  • Main pump failures
  • Excessive inflow of water

These units will give you the peace of mind without spending 10 thousand or more dollars for a whole house generator.

The other must item for every basement or crawl space is a commercial grade humidifier. These units will remove up to 90 pints of moisture in a 24 hour period. This will eliminate any musty orders, prevent the formation of mold or mildew and protect your furniture and carpeting if you have a finished basement.

Both of these items will turn your basement into a dry and clean smelling extension of your home instead of a damp musty dungeon.
