    Dehumidifier & CleanSpace Wall Vapor Barrier Saves Jackson, NJ Basement From Humidity

    The air in this Jackson, NJ basement was extremely humid due to the moisture being held in the poured concrete walls. The heavy rains had saturated the surrounding soils and the water had nowhere to go, causing it to seep into the foundation. Looking to eliminate the humidity and get rid of the musty odors that came along with the moisture, the homeowner contacted Quality 1st for a solution. System Design Specialist, Laura M., inspected the home and provided the homeowner with a solution. 

    The basement was already equipped with a sump pump and dehumidifier but the dehumidifer was not strong enough to eliminate water that was being stored in the walls. Our team installed CleanSpace Wall Vapor Barrier to create a brighter, cleaner appearance in the basement while holding back the water vapor passing through the walls and directing it towards the existing french drain. Additionally, we installed the SaniDry XP Dehumidifier to make the air in the basement drier and healthier!
