While wet basements and crawl spaces are often a concern to homeowners due to visible water, humidity is also a very important issue to mitigate. Damp basements and crawl spaces cause mold, rot wood, invite allergens, and cause many other issues. Professionally-installed, high-quality dehumidification is an often-overlooked but important component of waterproofing any space.

Installation and Quality Products

As with sump pumps, encapsulation systems, and any other waterproofing solution–the key is professional installation of excellent products.  DIY jobs done with hardware store components not only often fail, they represent a hazard when not installed and wired properly.

Crossroads’ team of highly-skilled and qualified professionals will offer appropriate options that will keep your crawl space or basement healthy and dry.

Our damp basement experts offer a number of dehumidification solutions based on your needs and budget.

We use Santa Fe Dehumidifiers, which are designed to maintain the perfect level of humidity in your basement. Santa Fe dehumidification systems come in different shapes and capacities to fit your square footage needs.

Sante Fe Dehumidifiers are equipped with the capacity to hook up to a sump pump or a drain line, which ensures you don’t have to empty the bucket yourself, saving you time, energy, and a damp basement. Plus, they’re some of the most energy efficient dehumidifiers on the market, and they’re relatively maintenance free.

SantaFe Classic dehumidifier

Santa Fe Classic Dehumidifier

Ranked as one of the most energy efficient residential dehumidifiers on the market, the American-made Santa Fe Classic Dehumidifier eliminates mold and mildew problems in large basements and crawl spaces. The Classic removes 110 pints of moisture per day under AHAM conditions (80 degrees F at 60% relative humidity) and approximately 220 pints at saturation (100% relative humidity). It dehumidifies spaces as large as 2,500 square feet and does it with Energy Star efficiency. This dehumidifier operates in temperatures as low as 56 degrees.

Superior Efficiency

The Classic removes more moisture per kilowatt hour than many conventional residential dehumidifiers at the same, or an even lower, operating cost.

Reliable Long Life

Solid internal construction and a heavy-duty cabinet contribute to years of reliable moisture control.

Independent Fan Control

An independent fan switch allows you to run the fan continuously for better distribution of dehumidified air, or only when the compressor is actively dehumidifying.


Measuring 36 inches high by 20 inches wide and 17 inches deep, the Classic is not compact. However, efficient operation, high capacity, and unbeaten reliability make it a great choice for long-term humidity control in large spaces.
