Over time, excess moisture in your home can lead to issues including:
- Mold growth
- Musty smells
- Window condensation
- Indoor air that feels unpleasantly “stuffy” or “sticky”
High indoor humidity can create unhealthy indoor air quality, reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system, and eventually cause damage to the construction and structural integrity of your home!
Total Home Performance’s humidity and moisture assessment is the first step toward solving indoor moisture and humidity issues. Our team can help you identify the problem and find long-lasting solutions for your home in the Maryland and Delaware areas.
Find Out Where Indoor Moisture Is Coming From
Moisture can build up in your home in many different ways. Some sources of moisture and humidity originate from inside your house, from activities like cooking, washing dishes, or taking a shower.
But while these activities can cause problems if they accumulate, it’s likely outdoor issues that are making their way into your home and causing the real issues. These can include:
- Air leaks allowing humid air inside
- Water and moisture that gets in your basement or crawl space
- Uninsulated ductwork that leads to condensation
Assess All Parts of Your Home for Moisture
One of the first places we check for moisture issues is a home’s crawl space. In Delaware and Maryland, it’s not uncommon to find standing water in musty, moldy crawl spaces. Even though you might not spend much time in your crawl space or basement, it can affect the health and safety of the rest of your home.
But our assessment doesn’t stop there. We’ll look for signs of moisture or unhealthy indoor humidity levels throughout your house, including your living spaces and attic. If necessary, we can even conduct testing for mold in your home, which is a telltale sign that you have moisture problems.
After Your Assessment: Finding the Right Healthy Home Services for You
At the end of our assessment, we’ll have the information we need to recommend a solution. We don’t just want to just do a one-time clean-up—we want to stop moisture or humidity from continuing to enter your home and help keep your home dry, comfortable, and healthy.
Services that we might recommend include:
- Encapsulating your crawl space
- French drain or sump pump installation
- Installing whole-house ventilation or dehumidification equipment
- Mold remediation
- Air sealing and insulation upgrades
