Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my crawl space or basement so humid?


Maybe you haven’t found any standing water or visible leaks in your basement or crawl space, but the air is thick with humidity. Where is the moisture coming from? Is it just normal to have a humid basement or crawl space? A few sources of moisture include…

  • Water from rain or groundwater trickling through the walls through small cracks or fissures
  • Interior problems like unvented clothes dryers, showers, and even poorly ventilated kitchen spaces
  • Exterior air let inside by venting the basement or crawl space or by opening basement windows
  • Moisture trapped in concrete of new construction

While a low humidity level is fine (and even healthy), excess moisture under your house can lead to a number of structural issues in your home.

Why is humidity in my basement or crawl space bad?

  • Mold and mildew
  • Water damage

How can I get rid of humidity in my crawl space or basement?
