Basement Humidity Solutions in Northern Indiana

A&M SafeBasements knows that basement humidity in your South Bend, Fort Wayne, Plymouth, Warsaw, Auburn, or Marion home can turn into a problem fast. Chances are likely that if you have excessively high levels of humidity, you also have a lot of moisture present. When you have these two elements in your basement, mold will be able to grow as long as it has organic material to feed off of (boxes, old clothes, cardboard,etc.). Mold doesn’t just look bad, it can cause a variety of health problems for you and your family, including:

As you can see, it’s important that you get rid of basement mold and prevent it altogether. One way of doing so is to take away one “ingredient” in the recipe for mold. So, if you remove both moisture and humidity, you’re not going to have to worry about this dangerous fungus growing underneath your home.

Warning Signs of High Humidity Levels

If you notice any of the following, odds are likely that you have a basement humidity problem:

Fixing the Problem

To take care of this common problem, we can install a dehumidifier and a waterproofing system that is ideal for the unique conditions underneath your home.

Dehumidifier

To control levels of humidity underneath your home, you can get a dehumidifier installed. We have a variety of dehumidifiers available in different capacities. This means that we can guarantee that we have the right size for your home. When you have this device installed, it will be able to remove this excessive humidity from your air and make it a much drier and more pleasant environment.

Waterproofing

When it comes to getting rid of basement moisture, we can provide you with many solutions. First, we will need to inspect your basement and determine how water is able to get inside. If you have leaky basement floor cracks or wall cracks, they will need to be sealed. If water is making it’s way into your home via the basement cove (where the basement wall meets the floor), then we can install a drainage system which connects to a sump pump. Once water reaches a certain level in the sump pit, it will be directed out and away from your home.

SafeDrain™ is the drain system we provide, and it can be installed along the wall of your basement. It will collect water so that it doesn’t get inside and ruin your walls, floor, and belongings. It can also be installed with an optional wall encapsulation product.

SafeDrain™ are designed with a special clear lid that can easily be looked through to inspect the system to make sure it’s working properly. It can also be installed with Radon mitigation systems for extra protection in your basement.
