Commercial-grade dehumidifiers protect your property from the devastating effects of water damage. Water damage occurs both naturally over time in high humidity environments and from catastrophic system failures. Regardless of the cause, here are the most common conditions where commercial-grade dehumidification services are essential to protect both life and property.
1. Mold and mildew
Mold and mildew will not only damage the structure of your building but it can exacerbate respiratory conditions such as allergies and asthma. While you can handle small spots of mold and mildew infestation using bleach, it's an entirely different story when it festers over a larger area. You will need to hire professionals to thoroughly get rid of the molds and this would incur high charges. It's important to address moisture issues right away, otherwise, molds and mildew will rot your assets. Rent or purchase a dehumidifier to tackle moisture problems instantly.
If you keep noticing condensation turning up on pipes, ceilings, floors and walls, this indicates a moisture problem. In addition, if you have a property in a flood-prone area wherein puddles of water form every time there's a heavy rain, there's a decent chance that moisture will be a persistent problem. Purchasing or renting a commercial dehumidifier is one effective way to protect your property.
3. Signs of Water Damage
Water and moisture can corrode and decay anything after some time. If the following signs are present in your property, perhaps it's time to invest in a commercial dehumidifier.
- Damage in your building structure
- Rotting wood
- Rusty and corroding metals
- Stained drywall
- Buckled or warped wood flooring
- Stuck doors
- Sagging ceiling
- Soggy items
This damage can be extremely expensive to fix if you don't address the moisture problem right away.
4. Musty odor
If a musty odor is noticeable in your building, it is an indication of an excessive moisture issue. Besides aggravating respiratory conditions, it can also leave a bad impression on customers who enter your building.
5. Pest Infestation
A confined, humid space is a favorable habitat for pesky pests. Damaged walls or floors can serve as a portal of entry for these invaders to enter your building. This causes another filthy problem as these critters can leave droppings, feed on your foundation's material and cause costly damage to your assets.
