If you’re noticing the dry soil conditions outside, it’s important to check for indoor issues as well. Since the weather has been so warm, many of us retreat indoors during the hottest parts of the day without realizing that the dry air outside is creating poor air quality inside. Dry soil particles often settle on window sills and counter tops, which are easy to wipe up. They also settle in our air filters and HVAC systems where they can travel through out the house and aggravate our allergies year round.
The "Clay Bowl Effect" can also be lowering your air quality. The stagnant water under your foundation creates a musty basement
where mold and other allergens can hide out. These mold and mildew particles are then mixed into the dusty, dry air from
rest of the house through the duct system and the end result is an allergy cocktail that can leave our families feeling lousy.
If you and your family are experiencing lingering allergy symptoms, or poor air quality, Peak Structural, INC. would be happy to meet with you and discuss the benefits of our SaniDry™ dehumidification system. The American Lung Association lists air dehumidification units among their top ten ways to create a healthy indoor air quality in your home.
