Your SaniDry CX dehumidification system under your house needs to be serviced annually as it is a high-performance machine. It needs to be tuned up, just like a car does, and this will ensure the level of moisture is below where mold and mildew develop.
During the service, the system and coils are checked, the heat exchange core is inspected and cleaned, the blower and discharge systems are inspected, and the overall working of the system is checked.
The pre-filter is cleaned, and the carbon filter is changed (see photos for before and after filters). A dirty filter means your dehumidification system is not working to its full potential and dust and mold spores are not being filtered out of the crawl space air that finds its way into your home.

The old aluminum-framed windows on this mobile home were cold and drafty. By replacing them with Simonton's Verona series of vinyl windows, they are more comfortable in their home, plus they look much better!
The bedroom above the garage in this Happy Valley, OR home was cold in the winter. The homeowner saw one of our trucks in his neighborhood and called us to get an estimate. No wonder it was uncomfortable—there was little to no insulation! (see Before photo) The homeowner chose spray foam; besides insulating, it also seals all the air leakage (see After photo).
These Vancouver, WA homeowners wanted to improve the air quality in their home and also decrease their heating and cooling costs. When our Energy Consultant crawled around under their home, he found a crumpled up vapor barrier, evidence of animal infestations, fiberglass batting hanging down, and gaps around the sill plate on the foundation wall.
This couple moved forward with a crawl space encapsulation. It helps dramatically improve air quality since almost 50% of the air you are breathing in a one-story home moves in to your home from the crawl space. By having the crawl space sealed and insulated so well, it will also help decrease utility costs. Two problems solved with one solution!
Since Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver offers different options for insulating your crawl space, these homeowners were able to choose the option that worked best for them. Our insulation crew applied 3 inches of closed cell spray foam to the underfloor and rim joists.
