WHY SHOULD YOU CARE ABOUT THE CRAWLSPACE UNDER YOUR HOME
MOISTURE: An unsealed crawlspace becomes a haven for mold and mildew growth. Mold degrades your indoor air quality, creating an environment that is extremely unhealthy for you and your family. Moisture also leads to rot, which will degrade your wood structure and warp floorboards.
INSECTS AND RODENTS:An unsealed crawlspace attracts insect and rodent infestations.
ENERGY EFFICIENT:An untreated crawlspace lets conditioned air out while allowing outdoor air in. Your heating and cooling systems must work overtime to compensate, and you’ll still feel cold floors and uneven temperatures in your home. It’s hard on your systems and burns more fuel, resulting in higher utility bills.
WHAT SPENCE’S PEST CONTROL CAN DO FOR YOU
- 1) A FREE inspection by our own Certified Mold Remediator – We inspect the area for insects or pests, as well as any groundwater situations and ensure these are addressed first.
- 2) Air seal and Insulation – It was once thought that crawlspaces should be vented to allow moisture to move out of the area. However, these vents allow just as much moisture to move in. Therefore, we air seal the entire space and install insulation to keep air and heat from moving freely through your crawlspace.
- 3) Vapor Barrier – After cleaning and sealing the area, we supply a barrier to the floor and walls, ensuring a good fit around pipes, vents and plumbing.
- 4) Dehumidifier – A crawlspace dehumidifier ensures the air in the crawlspace always stays at a constant and acceptable humidity level.
