Keep mold and moisture at bay with crawl space dehumidifiers in Portland
Mold is a serious concern for homeowners in Portland. Excess moisture creates a perfect condition for mold the take root. When it does, it spreads quickly, often in places that are out of sight. Mold is a hazard for the health of a home’s residents as well as the integrity of its building materials. Dehumidifiers are one of the best methods of keeping moisture levels low and decreasing the risk of mold. The Killers Crawl Space Restoration offers a selection of crawl space dehumidifiers specifically suited for the size and needs of your home. A member of our experienced team will come to you, inspect the condition of your crawl space, and make suggestions for the best residential dehumidifier.
Drying the air inside your crawl space has many benefits
- Reduce the smell of mildew and other odors
- Reduce potential structural damage caused by moisture
- Reduce health hazards caused by mold
- Improve the air quality of your home
Dehumidifiers protect your home only if they are installed correctly. A dehumidifier that sits next to an open, unsealed vent will only continuously pull in outside air—it will never keep up and will be a drain on your utilities.
Our installation service ensures the success of the dehumidifying efforts. We seal vents and install a vapor barrier if you do not already have a functioning barrier. These measures limit moisture in the crawl space so the dehumidifier is not working uselessly.
We handle the sales and installation for you!

Energy Star dehumidifiers for your crawl space
When you call us for an in-home inspection and consultation, we take the time to go over the details and features for the best option. We have several brand-name dehumidifiers with an Energy Star rating so the impact on your utility bills will be minimal.
Energy Efficient Dehumidifiers
We use dehumidifiers that are both powerful and energy efficient. They are also maintenance-free. Once a dehumidifier is installed, you won’t want to get into the crawl space to empty a collection tray. We have self-draining dehumidifiers that remove and release the water. Depending on your home, the water can be pumped into a drywell or to a location outside the crawl space.
We ensure the unit selected for your home is strong enough to cover the entire space, yet is not more than you need. There is no reason to pay more for a dehumidifier designed for a larger space than you have. We find that balance between powerful enough to do the job, yet nothing is wasted.
