Spring and summer are prime seasons for increased humidity. Basements, crawl spaces, and indoor pool or spa areas are key locations that may be affected by moisture in the air. When not addressed, excessive humidity can result in mold, musty scents, uneven floorboards, and stains on walls and ceilings. Dehumidifiers can do a great job of minimizing moisture and protecting your home, but there may be some risk involved.
Over the last 20 years, there have been a number of high-profile dehumidifier recalls from several name-brand manufacturers after faulty units caught fire. In some cases, these fires were devastating to the homeowners. Before you turn on your dehumidifier, please make sure it hasn’t been recalled.
