The value of a dry living space is far greater than you may realize. In addition to removing the threat to your personal belongings and the structural integrity of your home, lowering the humidity in your home will create a cooler and more comfortable environment for you and your family. Some of the most noticeable problems caused by high humidity are:
Excessive humidity in your home will cause natural materials such as paper and wood to deteriorate. The humidity in your home can also cause mold to develop in your basement or crawl space. If there is mold in your crawl space, it will most likely infect the air in the rest of the home, causing health issues for allergy prone members of your family. 50% of the air we breathe in our homes comes from the crawl space.
The best way to dehumidify your home is to put in a dehumidifier. Matthews Wall Anchors & Waterproofing can provide you with a Santa Fe dehumidifier to lower the overall humidity of your home, preventing mold growth and dust mites.

Our team of professional waterproofing contractors can help you determine the best dehumidifier to go in your home or business.
Another way to prevent excessive humidity in your home is to have a vapor barrier installed. This process, known as wall encapsulation, is excellent at sealing water vapor and moisture out of your home, reducing the humidity in all areas. The barrier is made of a water retardant foil or plastic that protects the interior foundation wall of the crawl space or basement. Once the vapor barrier is successfully installed all along the interior walls of the crawl space, you can work on installing a drainage method to further reduce humidity.
Interior waterproofing systems such as a sump pump and sump basin can also keep moisture out of the home. This system collects the water with a drainage pipe system and dumps the water in a sump pit. The water is then pumped out by the sump pump and carried away from the home.
