Lexington Crawl Space Dehumidifiers
If you have a crawl space in your Lexington home, you likely understand what an important role it plays. Despite this, crawl spaces are often a source of frustration since they are prone to so many problems. Your crawl space can have excess humidity, moisture build-up, pest infestations, rotten wood, and mold and mildew growth that degrades the air quality and structural stability of your home. Too much humidity or moisture build-up could also damage the concrete of your foundation, and even cause your foundation to settle. The experienced team at United Structural Systems can resolve these problems by installing a crawl space dehumidifier in your Lexington home to remove excess moisture and humidity. This will ensure moisture and humidity remain at acceptable levels, improving the overall air quality in the rest of your home. Crawl space dehumidifiers also prevent other serious problems that could result in future damage. Crawl space dehumidifiers are even more effective when paired with a crawl space encapsulation.
