Here are the 15 best dehumidifiers for mold we have come across. Does the below look familiar? Excess moisture in a house can really cause some problems including producing mold and mildew.
Looks familiar? Get a dehumidifer
One great way to rid your house of excess moisture is to get a dehumidifier. An electric dehumidifier works by using a fan to bring in room air over a cool coil then a warm coil which draw out the moisture. The moisture is then deposited into a holding tank or drains out of a hose. These types of dehumidifiers tend to produce a fair amount of noise and run well for a couple years. They also come in varying sizes: a large dehumidifier collects up to 75 pints of water per day, a medium 45-50 pints per day and a small one 24-40 pints per day. It is a good idea to buy the largest dehumidifier suitable for your space and humidity levels. Below I have listed a range of the 15 best small, medium, and large dehumidifiers for mold that rank highest in customer satisfaction.

Pro tip: when the unit arrives after shipping, you should let it sit for 24-48 hours before use to let the oil in the motor settle. The unit collects moisture steadily and reliably, and is one of the best we have seen. For a clear video review of this product see
