Why Do I Have Condensation?
Condensation forms when the humidity in the air reaches 100%. When the air can no longer hold the moisture it has to let it go. Condensation on cold pipes and metal in your basement is often the result.
Your condensation problem is a sign that you have another, larger problem: basement humidity. Basement humidity is water vapor, or moisture, in the basement air. When your basement humidity is over 50% it’s holding up a welcome sign to mold, mildew, musty smells and dust mites.
“A condensation problem means you have basement humidity. And basement humidity can invite mold, mildew, dust mites and other pests into your home.”
Your basement humidity problem is created when water finds its way into your basement through wall cracks, floor wall joints or leaking windows.
It’s important to remember that the air in your basement also circulates through your home. So if you have high basement humidity then you’re going to have high indoor humidity. High indoor humidity can lead to high electric bills, mold growth in living areas, and drywall damage.

How Can I Stop Condensation?
Don’t waste your money on a cheap basement dehumidifier.
Many common house dehumidifiers don’t do a good job removing the humidity from your air and end up costing a lot of money to run.
If the dehumidifier isn’t drained properly you could just end up with puddles on your basement floor. Have a professional basement waterproofing expert take a look at your basement, and find out the cause of your condensation problem.
