The last few weeks have left the Midwest feeling a bit waterlogged. Many are doing their best to literally keep their heads above water. Those of us who aren't quite so soggy are doing their best to keep their basements and homes dry and moisture free (thank you humidity). With little time in between massive downpours and adverse weather to recuperate, many people have been turning to some technological help.
Click through the jump for our roundup of dehumidifiers that can not only help in those wet basements and bathrooms, but aide in lowering your bills and improving your health.
