Eliminate mold and moisture damage with our dry home solutions
Water damage can cause significant harm to buildings, and the true extent of the damage often goes beyond the initial flooding. Even after the standing water has been removed, moisture can linger in materials like fiberglass insulation, drywall, carpeting, and structural wood.
Failure to completely dry and remove this moisture can lead to mold growth in concealed areas such as behind walls and in enclosed cavities like closets, wall voids, cabinets, and crawl spaces.
In addition to mold growth, excess humidity in buildings can also promote the proliferation of allergenic dust mites and bacteria that compromise health. The dark and humid environment created by water damage also attracts various pests including cockroaches, termites, carpenter ants, rodents, wood-boring beetles, and crickets.
Allowing mold to flourish can result in severe damage to property values. In fact, a study on toxic mold revealed an average decrease in property value of 59% for affected properties.

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.

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.
