Taking The Extra Step To Protect Your Home!
When it comes to maintaining effective pest protection, managing the moisture levels in and around your home is a huge part of the equation. Many pests are attracted to moisture, and if your home provides them with the moisture they need, they'll be much more likely to invade your home. Excess moisture can cause damage to areas of your home that will both other pest and non-pest related problems. For example, water-damaged wood will attract termites and too much moisture can lead to mold problems.
To keep your home free of moisture damage and the pest problems that can result from moisture problems, it’s important to make sure you’re not neglecting moisture control. That’s where the team here at Pest & Termite Consultants comes in! We offer moisture control services to ensure your home’s moisture levels stay where they need to be!
Moisture Control That Works!
One of the first places in your home that experiences moisture damage is its crawlspaces. These areas are somewhat exposed to the elements but are also closed off enough for moisture to get trapped inside, making these areas especially prone to excessive moisture. That’s why crawlspaces are typically our main focus when it comes to providing our moisture control services.
Step 1: Moisture Barrier
When treating your home for moisture problems, we'll first apply a moisture barrier to your crawlspaces and seal them off with plastic to reduce moisture.
Step 2: Dehumidifier
Once the barrier is applied, we'll then set up dehumidifiers in these spaces. These are self-maintaining units that have a built-in drainage system that will drain when necessary as well as a moisture gauge to turn the system on and off.
Step 3: Filter Change
As a separate service, our technicians can return to provide filter changes for the dehumidifiers on a regular basis.
By taking measures to keep moisture out of your home, you’ll protect it from moisture-related problems such as mold or mildew as well as the threats posed by moisture-seeking pests including termites, carpenter ants, and more!
