I recently had some pretty drastic flooding problems in my basement.
It was no fun at all.
I had to pay a lot of money to get the basement pumped out. I had to have all new carpet put in down there, and I also had to replace some of the drywall that got destructiond by the flood. I have noticed that it still seems damp down there even though everything has been repaired. I decided to buy a dehumidifier to put down there to see if it would help dry things up a bit. I unquestionably did not want to have to deal with mold or anything like that. I have been using a dehumidifier down there for about a month now, and I can say that it honestly has made a significant difference. It is not nearly as moist down there since I started using that dehumidifier. I am thinking about buying a second dehumidifier for the basement. I am thinking that if one dehumidifier makes a substantial difference, then, more than one dehumidifiers will certainly solve my problem completely. I am not sure, however I am going to just go ahead and try it out. I hope that the second dehumidifier will completely solve my problem so that I can transfer the kids playroom down into the basement once again. They are making a substantial mess of my kitchen ever since they started playing up there because of the basement problems. I am ready to have a clean kitchen once again free of children’s toys. I cannot tell you how more than 2 toys I have stepped on in the past few weeks.
