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.

This family in Milwaukie, OR wanted their family room to be more comfortable. Our Energy Consultant visited and determined what was making that room uncomfortable: air was leaking through from the home into the attic through many gaps. The places with a lot of gaps were around the can lights. Our crew installed can light covers and sealed around them (see AFTER photo) to help prevent leaks.
The family told us their heating bill dropped dramatically and the family room is much more comfortable now.
The ductwork under this building in Aumsville, OR was missing a lot of insulation, plus there were gaps in the joints, so a LOT of heated air was never even making it in to the building. For a more permanent solution, they chose to spray foam the ductwork to encapsulate them.
These homeowners were unaware of the rat party that was happening in their attic. Our Energy Consultant found lots of evidence (see photo) and showed them what he found.
To help prevent the critters in the future, our crew removed all the old insulation, air sealed gaps (they can see these when they removed the old insulation; this is one reason we encourage homeowners to remove old insulation), and then blow in TruSoft™ cellulose to the R-49 level. Animals do not like to nest in the cellulose since it is treated with borate.
Since this Hillsboro, OR home was experiencing an extensive remodel (BEFORE photo), the owner took advantage of it and chose our company to fill the open wall cavities with closed-cell spray foam (AFTER photo). It is a much better and long-term solution over fiberglass batting: it is more insulating, helps with sound-dampening, and won’t sag like batting does.
