Humidity in the basement

As my kids get older, I have more and more boxes of things I want to set aside and save to look back on in the years to come.

For example, I have all kinds of art projects and pieces of school work. I would like to use my basement for storage, as there are a million other things I need to keep track of, but I am worried that the basement is too humid. Everytime something sits in the basement for too long, the moisture changes its shape and leaves it with a smell. There has even been some dust and mold as a result of the humidity. I don’t want to ruin these precious memories that I am trying to save, so I decided that I need to get a dehumidifier. The humidity is not an issue in the rest of the house, so I think I will just get a dehumidifier for the basement. Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air and will eliminate the damp, moldiness of our basement. I think this will be the best solution and it will open up a whole lot of space for storage in our home. I don’t know how I didn’t think of this sooner! I called an HVAC company and they were able to install the dehumidifier as an attachment to the HVAC system we already had in our home. While it was somewhat costly, it was worth it to know that my memories are safe and free of mold.
