Hello Life(style) Mavens,
Summer is steaming up headlines and I wanted to share a beneficial & healthy home solution. I would like to help you make sure that your basement and/or crawl spaces are moisture free, with sufficient ventilation. Homeowners would agree, the basement and crawl spaces can prove to be the most problematic parts of a home to maintain. With stale, stagnant damp air, odors, mold & other pollutants thrive. They can even flow into our living quarters with you & your loved ones!
If your home is known for harboring excess moisture due to insufficient ventilation then its probably the breeding ground for mold, dust mites & other creepy crawlers. These homes can contain high levels of gases, radon, combustion, VOC’s, toxic vapors, all which will eventually begin flowing upward. This can lead to Sick Home Syndrome which cause respiratory ailments, asthma, headaches…
Here’s some facts:
- EPA states that air inside a home can be 5 times more polluted than air outside.
- World Health Organization, EPA, & the Surgeon General all urge that homes be ventilated with adequate air exchanges and also control moisture levels.
- Dehumidifiers dry out the air but do not ventilate so you still have trapped toxins, pollutants and stale air & an cost $50/month in electric bills. Homeowners hate the maintenance – constantly emptying buckets of water
And I vividly remember my own experience…the basement kept flooding every time it rained. Did I mention, the house is on a hill (downside)? Many trips to Home Depot (pumps, sheet rock since mold took over, moisture absorbers, the works), hundreds of dollars and many hours of YouTube lessons later, the basement problem was under control. Wish I had known about Wave Home Solutions, which ventilates and dries out the home.
Wave Home Solutions attacks those pesky basement problems at its source, usually at the lowest level of a home. It draws damp polluted air from the floor level your basement or crawl (through vents at the bottom of the unit) and expels it outside. Warmer and drier “replacement” air from upstairs is drawn into the basement or crawl through a vent (ingenious indeed). This not only dries out the structure but creates the necessary air exchanges needed for a healthy home (approximately 6-10 exchanges).
Wave Home (Purification) Solutions:
- Regulates ventilation speed, which is determined by the conditions of basement. When necessary, it will increase and as conditions improve, ventilation rate will slow down.
- Constantly and automatically measures relative humidity and adjusts to maximize results, never shutting off. It will maintain conditions 24/7 year round and provide constant air exchange as recommended.
- Cost Effectiveness…literally costs pennies a day to run.
- Maintenance free with a satisfaction guaranteed.
Wave Home Solutions is my official expert when it comes to my basement’s moisture issues. I wouldn’t have it any other way! Imagine, it’s cost effective, reliable, and overall…essential as a health fix and solution. Why would you use anything else?

I would love to see how Wave Home made your basement problem an easy & health solution.
