Basement Dehumidifiers

Basement Dehumidifiers are critical for ensuring that moisture doesn't seep into the basement area—even if you have insulated your basement with weatherproofing/waterproofing synthetic applications. Moisture seepage is the most prominent cause of basement maintenance issues like mold, surface peeling or invasive dampness that seeps inside the house. An effective dehumidifier guarantees dryness in the basement, helping to prevent proliferation of dust mites and mildew. Further, most contemporary dehumidifiers are sold with air filters that help in keeping the internal, circulated air free of allergy-causing pathogens.

A dehumidifier also helps to increase the life cycle of your basement waterproofing coatings by ensuring that minimal amount of moisture seeps through the coated surfaces.


The look of Invisalign clear dental braces

What do Invisalign ® clear dental braces look like?

Invisalign ® orthodontic aligners are thin, clear plastic appliances that has been custom-molded so they fit snugly over the wearer's teeth. They can look very similar to the dental bleaching trays that dentists make for their patients so they can perform at-home teeth whitening treatments. In most cases, however, orthodontic aligners are made out of a thinner, stiffer type of plastic and one that is more optically clear (and therefore is less noticeable when worn).

Invisalign ® aligners are also very similar, almost precisely so, to the clear plastic vacuum-molded orthodontic retainers that are sometimes worn by patients once they have completed their orthodontic treatment.

By relieving these symptoms we are improving our quality of life.  We wake up more refreshed, we have the ability to participate in healthy activities, we actually chew our food better allowing for healthier digestion and we even experience less stress

Reducing Indoor Humidity

Posted: May 15th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »
 
  • If your basement has a dirt floor, cover the floor completely with plastic to slow down water vapor coming through the soil.
  • Use ventilation fans in kitchens and baths to control moisture. Check to make sure ventilation fans venting directly outside. In some cases the vent fan may have been installed to vent into the attic or become disconnected or blocked.
  • Your clothes dryer should be vented directly to the outside. Inspect the vent duct. Make sure it is attached securely to the dryer. Check that it is clear of obstructions (e.g. lint). Check for holes that leak air. If vent duct is damaged replace it with a metal duct. The vent duct should be cleaned at least once a year.
  • Ask a heating and cooling contractor to check your heating and cooling system to make sure it is sized and operating properly to remove humidity. If you system is too big or the airflow incorrect your air conditioner will not remove humidity like it should. Also, ask the contractor to check your duct system for air leaks, and proper size and air flow to each room. To help you find a contractor, please refer to our recommendations.
  • Sealing air leaks and sealing duct air leaks can help to prevent high humidity levels in your home.
  • During hot humid months, using a dehumidifier in the basement can reduce condensation on the walls. This may work better after you've sealed air and duct leaks to reduce the amount of humid outdoor air you are bringing into the basement.
