Many people with basements have noticed that musty basement smell. However, not everyone knows the underlying issue with basements actually goes deeper than just the smell. Basements tend to lack proper ventilation, and this causes a build up of moisture and pollutants, which creates an unhealthy and unsafe environment for the family inside the home.
Natural airflow rises and pulls the pollutants up into the rest of the house, where people can be affected by mold, mites, radon, combustion gases, carbon monoxide, and volatile organic compounds. Moisture build up in the basement can also lead to structural damage such as wood rot in floors and beams, as well as damage to pipes and windows. With all these things going on without proper ventilations, people are more prone to respiratory ailments, asthma, and other health conditions.
The simplest way to remedy these basement issues is with a ventilator, such as the Wave ventilation system. It expels odors, moisture, mold, and indoor gases and pollutants. It also replenishes the area with warmer, drier air from the upper level to raise the temperature and lower the humidity in your basement. Essentially, this Wave ventilation system ventilates the entire area with a continuous airflow to prevent structural damage to your home, reduce the growth of mold and other biological pollutants, and create a required air exchange.
The Wave ventilation system will help produce cleaner, fresher, and healthier air that will benefit you and your family.
