Humidity control in basements.

The best way to solve problems in basements

How to prevent mildew and unpleasant odors?
How to avoid condensed moisture and corrosion?
How to prolong life span of the car?
How to prolong span of garages or buildings?
How to improve the microclimate in parking spaces and storages?

In order to achieve all these goals, it is necessary to reach the optimum humidity in basements!

According to the World Health Organization, people become victims of mildew fungi which actively reproduce in premises with higher humidity. When they get into respiratory tracts, spores and fragments of mildew can cause allergic diseases – bronchial asthma and rhinitis. Among people who suffer from rhinitis 57% are allergic to mildew, among asthma patients – 78%. The number of people who are allergic to mildew increases annually. Mildew can cause not only allergies but also chronic diseases, including cancer.

Mildew fungi survive in cold, heat, higher air pressure and increased doses of radiation. The omnipresent fungi can easily penetrate into living organisms (plants, animals, humans) and they parasitize on them causing disease. You cannot eliminate mildew – it develops in any environment, surviving under extreme conditions.

“Favorite” places of mildew fungi – premises and areas with higher humidity, balconies, window frames, and wooden constructions. The fungus infects walls and floors of various buildings. Aspergillus and Penicillium fungi damage material: all natural and many synthetic materials and even steel and reinforced concrete constructions.

Materials that contain substances on which fungi feed suffer the most: natural fabrics, wooden filling materials, protein-based glue, carbohydrates, cinematographic and photo materials, paper and, of course, food. And what is inedible for fungi is destroyed by chemically aggressive waste products of fungi life activity.

Furthermore, mildew rises moisture content in the material. It can cause intensive development of not only mildew fungi as such but also of bacteria, including pathogenic bacteria. Therefore, molding of food products not only deteriorates marketability and taste characteristics of products, but also causes food poisoning, dysbacteriosis, and metabolic disorders.

According to the World Health Organization, more than 10% of food and food additives are wasted because they are affected by mildew fungi.

Fungi are danger to human health!

The most dangerous are Aspergillus fungi. Aspergillus spores contain aflatoxin – a highly toxic substance that can cause liver cancer. In people with low immunity fungal spores can cause pulmonary aspergillosis – a dangerous infectious disease, often leading to death.

Babies, children and the elderly need protection from moisture, which “helps” mildew to emerge and develop!
Higher humidity in unheated or irregularly heated premises, leads to the development of mildew and pathogenic bacteria.

The only way to prevent mass development of bacteria and mildew in unheated or irregularly heated rooms is to create unfavorable conditions for their reproduction.

Currently, one of the universal methods of removing excess moisture is the desiccant method of drainage.

RELIABLE METHOD OF PROTECTION

Desiccant dehumidifiers of Desiccant Technologies Group prevent the development of fungal microflora in the air and improve the sanitary condition of the premises.

If a private house or a building has damp and unheated or irregularly heated room, the only way is to install the desiccant dehumidifier of Desiccant Technologies Group.

Installation of DT Group equipment

  • Prevents the development of mildew and bacteria on products and surfaces in basements;
  • Creates the necessary microclimate in basements;
  • Improves the hygienic condition of the premises;
  • Increases the lifespan of buildings and constructions;
  • Preserves the original characteristics of construction materials;
  • Prevents failures of electronic and electrical systems.

Places where the desiccant dehumidifier needs to be installed:

  • Swimming pools and gyms, which are often located in basements and, as a rule, are not heated continuously.
  • Premises that store pictures, furs, medicine, goods made of wood.
  • Wine warehouses, vegetable storehouse

 

Low temperature and high humidity is the main cause for the emergence of fungi and subsequent putrefaction, which ruins all what we value.

It is necessary to protect your property and health!

No one will ever return the invested money and the lost health!

The European leader in high-quality desiccant dehumidifiers Desiccant Technologies Group dries air to the lowest possible humidity levels at any temperatures.

Industrial Desiccant dehumidifiers of DT Group are used

  • To prevent development of mildew and fungi in buildings and constructions;
  • To dry buildings and facilities after floods;
  • To prevent corrosion on electrical equipment;
  • To improve conditions of food storage in basements.

Desiccant dehumidifiers of Desiccant Technologies Group save your health and protect your home from the effects of excessive moisture!

 

How does the desiccant dehumidifier work?

The air which should be dehumidified (process air) goes through the desiccant rotor. Water molecules are adsorbed in a special silicagel rotor.

Desiccant rotor is regenerated by the second air stream preheated to 90-140 °C. Moisture is removed from the premises in the form of warm moist air.
