Although it might seem the case, a musty, damp basement is not normal. In an area like Philadelphia where rain year-round is common, odors and basement mold and mildew can happen too quickly.
Investing in the right dehumidifier is important, that’s why the experts at BQ Basements & Concrete provide customers with cutting-edge basement dehumidifier systems.
We’ll break down the importance of a dehumidifier and explain why our unit is unbeatable.
A dehumidifier is an appliance that removes moisture from the air. Even if your basement is fully waterproofed, your basement may still feel damp because of the moisture in the air. This moisture is absorbed into the floor and walls in your basement and the big box stores dehumidifiers are simply not strong enough to remove it.

Why invest in a Dehumidifier?
Even with the best waterproofing system installed, water vapor can still remain in the air. Add Philadelphia’s warm summer temperatures and your basement could become the ideal location for mold and mildew growth. During the summer, hot humid air in the basement rises through your home and brings with it any mold spores that developed. That’s why a dehumidifier is a solid investment for more than just your basement health. It not only removes water from the air, but also filters out unhealthy particles in the air.
The Environmental Protection Agency says humidity levels are optimal around 30 to 60 percent, but it should never exceed 60 percent. At 60% humidity, your home’s health is at risk.
