Moisture attracts potential hazards to your home or business. One of these is pests, who love a moist area to call home. Here are some potential sources of moisture both from the exterior and interior.

Left unattended, moisture issues can quickly lead to potentially hazardous conditions and extensive remediation and corrective actions. A thorough inspection by a trained professional can ensure the source of the moisture is located and the most effective solution is selected. Call today to set up a FREE home or property inspection.
Crawl spaces often need additional ventilation and/or vapor barriers, paired with the use of fans to reduce high moisture levels. Temp-Vent® is a powered foundation vent system proven to be one of the quickest and most effective systems in providing ventilation for moisture control. In addition, small fans are encased in the housing of the vent to create negative pressure and pull air through the foundation. Powered vents are installed on one side of the foundation with open, non-powered vents on the opposite side.
Dehumidifiers may be needed in areas with extremely high levels of moisture. Dehumidifiers minimize mold and mildew growth, reduce pest infestations, and can save the average home in energy consumption. These systems require installing a ground cover, a vapor barrier, a condensate pump and a drain line to remove moisture. Foundation vents and any large cracks in the foundation wall are sealed off properly.
Other solutions such as sand installation and fungus treatments may also be appropriate depending on the conditions. Your pest specialist will be able to help make this determination.
Please note: Repairs to girders, sill plates, sub floor, insulation, etc. may need to be completed prior to installing new ventilation or dehumidifiers.
