Dehumidification Services in Houston & Galveston, TX

Finding unexpected wet or damp spots on your walls or ceilings is not just surprising, but also a worrisome experience, especially when you are not sure what is causing these problems. Excess moisture and dampness can cause problems such as foul odor, or worse, mold growth.


Humidity in the Home

The first sign of humidity in the home is typically window condensation. Humid air inside the home is usually a result of things such as stove-top cooking without ventilation or drying laundry.

When there is a high percentage of humid indoor air it can cause problems such as:

  • musty odor
  • mold and mildew growth
  • rust
  • damaging electrical equipment
  • health risks

Health issues are the most serious risks associated with humid air as it can lead to bacteria, viruses, fungi and mites, and result in illnesses and respiratory problems especially for young children and elders.

What is a Dehumidifier

about that Dehumidifier

A dehumidifier is similar to a vacuum cleaner in the sense that it sucks the moisture from the air and removes it from the indoors. The moisture is pulled into a collection tank so the water and moisture causing humidity is literally removed out of the home. Most dehumidifiers can be broken down into four parts:

  • Fan Compressor -- compresses and expands a refrigerant gas like freon to cool the dehumidifier's coils.
  • Reheater -- captures and collects heat that the cooling process generates.
  • Compressor cooling coils
  • Reservoir

How Dehumidifiers Eliminate Moisture

about that Dehumidifier

It begins with a fan collecting air from the surrounding area, and pulls it inside the dehumidifier.

When the air passes through, it comes into contact with the dehumidifiers cool coils. The coils go through condensation to pull in the moisture from the air and the collected moisture moves into the dehumidifier reservoir.

Lastly, the dehumidifier reheats the air and exhausts it (now dry) back into the room. 

Our dehumidifiers have a removable reservoir bucket with a place for a hose that is used to drain water straight into a floor drain or pump. This feature allows you the freedom from having to remove the collected water so often. Some dehumidifiers also have a built-in condensate pump that consistently pumps water out of the reservoir.
