Preventing Moisture Build-Up in Food Storage

The storage of large quantities of food for an extended period of time can cause excessive amounts of condensation that can not only increase the potential for food spoilage but can also cause harm to the storage area itself. Dehumidification is the preferred method of reducing moisture in large structures and ensures the safety of the perishable contents and the area in which it is stored. The reduction of humidity is the first and best solution to eliminating condensation in large areas used for storage and processing of large quantities of perishable foodstuffs.


Industrial air conditioning is the safest and most effective method of reducing humidity and condensation in industrial food storage. Temperature has a direct effect on whether moisture will condense and cause the accumulation of water and damage to the structure and its contents. Temperature control also helps to extend the life of perishable foods and lengthens the amount of time they can be safely stored.

Even with the best planning, mistakes and accidents can occur and cause an outcome that is detrimental to the storage area and its contents. The contents may or may not be able to be salvaged, but MovinCool finds that its clients typically suffer more damage to the equipment. Damage to the storage facility could have a lasting effect on the area’s ability to store other perishables in the future. A water damage restoration team is the fastest way to make sure that the water damage is kept to a minimum and the area can again be used for storage as quickly as possible.
