Studies have shown that as much as 50% of the air in your home comes up from your basement or crawlspace. This air is often higher in moisture content and carries with it various allergens and musty odors. When conditions linger above 60% relative humidity for extended periods of time, mold, mildew, and bacteria growth are stimulated.
The American Lung Association, American Medical Association, and the EPA recommend maintaining relative humidity levels in the 30% – 50% range. Ventilation and air conditioning alone cannot provide the protection offered by a high capacity dehumidifier like the these Santa-Fe units from Standard Water Control. Protecting your family and your biggest investment is worth the best.
