This basement was always wet and musty. The nice lady that owned the home got headaches and allergy symptoms all the time. She tried the little buckets and moisture absorbing bags to get rid of the smells and moisture. Unfortunately, those things are not meant for that large of a problem. She even went and bought two $400 dehumidifiers that ran constantly. Once she got our SaniDry installed, the problem cleared up and the power bills went way down because the one SaniDry ran less then the two store bought dehumidifiers.
