Structural Humidity Control is important to us because humidity contributes to pest issues.
Selling, installing and servicing high quality dehumidifiers is an important Integrated Pest Management (IPM) tool to help reduce pests and pesticide use. House centipedes, for example, will thrive in a moist basement because they feed on smaller insects that feed on fungal growth. By drying out your basement, fungus is reduced and insect activity is reduced. As important as controlling pests a dehumidifier imporves the air quality in your home. About half of the air in your home comes up to the living space from your basement (or crawl space). If you have finished basement space the air quality is directly impacted by the relative humidity. High humidity leads to fungus and mold growth, insect infestations, structural issues and poor indoor air quality.
