Detecting High Basement Humidity Levels

With the naturally humid Virginia climate and close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and other large bodies of water, homeowners in our area are likely to experience high basement humidity levels and other water issues in the lower levels of their homes.

Virginia Foundation Solutions is the premier expert in Virginia Beach and the surrounding areas when it comes to mitigating foundation and water problems in your home. One solution we recommend is a basement dehumidifier, which is a stand-alone, portable dehumidifier designed to operate more efficiently in a basement and in colder temperatures than a regular “above-ground” dehumidifier. To find out if you need a dehumidifier for your home or have our team detect the humidity in your house, contact us.

Excessive moisture can create expensive damages, and in some cases health issues related to allergies or lung dysfunction. Virginia Foundation Solutions can determine which type of basement dehumidifier is right for your situation. If your basement is susceptible to one or more of the following problems, chances are you need a dehumidifier installed in your home:

Crawl 2
  • Humidity levels above 50-55 percent.
  • Your basement feels damp to the skin.
  • Your basement smells musty and/or exhibits visual indications of mold and mildew.
  • Visible indications of rot and/or decay.
  • Condensation, frost, and/or ice buildup on cold surfaces. Foggy windows or ice formations in your basement indicate that moisture levels in your basement are much higher than they should be.
  • Cracked, blistered, or peeling paint on walls or other painted surfaces.

Any one of these indications of high humidity in your basement signals significant problems that, if left unresolved, could require extensive and costly repairs down the road. These problems require immediate attention.

Call Virginia Foundation Solutions today—we will assess the temperature levels of your basement, detect humidity in your house, and recommend a dehumidifier that is perfect for you. We are the experts in providing options that best fit your budget and your situation. We will solve your basement and foundation problems, and we will do it right.

Quality materials and workmanship. Matt answered all our questions, even after hours, and Miguel and his crew were efficient and resolved all issues immediately. A very satisfied customer.


Professional and courteous at all time. Crew was on site for 4 days in terrible weather and never missed a beat. Kept us informed, did what they planned and kept the areas near and clean. A really great crew.

Hal Luebke

VFS crew did a wonderful job. They worked effectively together to complete our project. They used care in making sure our lawn was not ruined and they cleaned up their work area when completed.

Mary Routten

Work was completed as promised. Purple crew was prompt, professional, and considerate of our home. Zero complaints

S House

I highly recommend this company. They had the best price, quality work and it was completed on time, which is rare these days. It’s not easy so I commend the crew on their hard work!

Donald Marx

Everything looks GREAT and the finished crawlspace was better than we expected. The RED crew did a great job and left the entire worksite cleaner than it was when they arrived.

Mike Shaffer

We recently used VFS to install an interior french drain and sump pump in our finished lower level. The "purple crew" was assigned to our job and they were fabulous!!! They were timely, neat, respectful and hardworking. We are very happy with the job they did.

Howard Bloom

The yellow crew (Willy, Marco, Oscar, and Patrick) were VERY professional and hard working. They kept us informed every step of the way. The clean up at end of the workday was exceptional. The best part is my foundation is fixed and our crawlspace is the cleanest crawlspace I have ever seen.

Scott Withdrew

The workers were very professional, experienced and knowledgeable. They left the crawlspace with reinforced support beams. A supervisor checked their work in the afternoon.

Rick Ruscak

VFS did a great job on our house’s foundation in double quick time and when they left our yard was cleaner and tidier than it was when they came! Thank you all. The masonry team also did a wonderful job. The damaged brickwork looks as good as new. Well done!

Great customer service. Fantastic work under the house along with follow through to ensure everything was complete. Our Moisture and Termite inspector said it was the best "under house" inspection he'd done!
