Basement Humidity Solutions In Indiana

Our team at A&M Home Services knows that basement humidity in your northern Indiana home can turn into a problem fast. Chances are likely that you also have a lot of moisture if you have excessively high humidity levels. When you have high humidity and moisture 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.). In addition to looking horrible, mold can cause various health problems for you and your family, including breathing problems, asthma attacks, headaches, fatigue, or skin rashes.

You must eliminate basement mold and take steps to prevent it altogether. One way to accomplish this is to remove one “ingredient” in the recipe for mold. If you eliminate both moisture and humidity, you will not have to worry about this dangerous fungus growing underneath your home. Our team of experts can install a humidifier and provide waterproofing services in Northern Indiana to solve the mold problem in your home.

Warning Signs Of High Humidity Levels

● Noticeable mold growing on the wall, floor, or boxes
● A musty odor comes from the basement
● The floor and walls feel damp

Fixing The Problem

To take care of this common issue, our team at A&M Home Services can install a dehumidifier and a waterproofing system that is ideal for the unique conditions underneath your home.

Basement Waterproofing

Our experts can provide you with many solutions when it comes to getting rid of basement moisture. First, we need to inspect your basement and determine how water can get inside. If you have leaky basement floor cracks or wall cracks, they will need to be sealed. If water is making its way into your home via the basement cove (where the basement wall meets the floor), our team can install a drainage system that connects to a sump pump. Once the 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 your basement wall. It will collect water, so it doesn’t get inside and ruin your walls, floor, and belongings. It can also be installed with an optional wall encapsulation product.

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

Dehumidifier Installation

To control humidity levels underneath your home, you can install a dehumidifier. The purpose of a dehumidifier is to remove excessive humidity from your air, creating a drier and more pleasant environment where mold cannot thrive. We have a variety of dehumidifiers available in different capacities, which means we can guarantee we have the right size for your home.
