Moisture buildup can occur because a small leak or seepage is enough to damage insulation, flooring, drywall and furnishings. Moreover, modern buildings are more susceptible to moisture damage because of their construction and design. The areas that are most vulnerable to moisture intrusion include kitchen, laundry area, attic, basement and crawl space. If you notice moisture buildup in any of these areas, it is best to hire the services of a professional moisture control expert and nip the problem in the bud. Property owners who ignore the moisture problem have to spend millions of dollars on repairs.
