Moisture Control in the Triad

Having excess moisture in your crawl space might not seem like a big deal, but it can have a serious impact on the well-being of your home and family. It creates the perfect environment for mold, termites, and other issues that you don’t want anywhere near your loved ones. Luckily, we offer moisture control that can help solve these problems before they get out of hand.

Don’t Worry About Your Crawl Space Again

At Pest-X Exterminating, we’re always willing to go above and beyond. We don’t just take care of your crawl space once—we’re here all year round! We offer annual warranties on our services that are easy to renew, plus a humidity monitor so you can easily keep an eye on things. If the humidity goes above 45%, let us know and we’ll come back to fix things.

What Causes Moisture in Crawl Spaces?

Plenty of things can cause water to get into your crawl space, even everyday occurrences like rain. As the water soaks into the soil, it can seep through the walls of your home’s foundation and evaporate into the crawl space. High humidity levels outside, burst pipes, and clogged gutters can also introduce unwanted water.

Why Crawl Space Moisture is Bad

Your home always has some level of humidity, which is a good thing. Moisture in the air prevents wood from shrinking and cracking, and it can help prevent respiratory issues or nosebleeds. Too much humidity, however, causes problems such as:

Higher energy bills

Damp air takes more energy to cool and heat, which means you’re spending more money to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.

Pest infestations

If water can find its way into your home, so can pests. Stubborn insects like termites and roaches are also attracted to moist environments.

Health problems

Mold, mildew, and fungus growth all happen in damp spaces. When it grows in your crawl space, the spores circulate around your home and can cause allergies and other illnesses.

Structural damage

Excess moisture leads to wood rot, which can affect subflooring, floor joists, and support beams. If these are damaged, your home can become unsafe.

Insulation damage

When moisture gets into the air pockets of insulation, it damages the insulation and makes it less effective.

Benefits of a Closed Crawl Space

The benefits of crawlspace encapsulation are numerous. Here are a few of them:

  • Creates a clean and conditioned space.
  • Improved air quality in the home (50% of the air in your home comes from the crawlspace). 
  • Odor elimination in your home.
  • Stop mold and wood decay on floor joists.
  • Reduce flex and buckling of floors.
  • Lower maintenance costs.
  • Warmer floors in the winter.
  • Save on heating and cooling costs.
  • Dramatically reduce presence of pests, including termites.

Our Encapsulation Services Process

At Pest-X, we provide comprehensive crawlspace encapsulation services with professional attention to quality and best practices. As a pest control and drainage company, we are uniquely positioned to inspect for termites and water damage before the encapsulation process starts. This ensures that no wood-destroying pests nor moisture are sealed in the area, making conditions even worse. We install a high-quality vapor barrier specifically designed for this job which is thicker than regular plastic sheeting. After completing the encapsulation, insulation may be added and a dehumidifier (or a small amount of air from the HVAC system, or vent fan) is used to condition the space.

They have exceptional customer service from the people who answer the phones to Nick the technician that came to our house. I feel for what we spent for their services that we most definitely got what we paid for and then some. If you're having issues with pest, call them first!

James was wonderful, he sprayed around the windows and returned duster.

He went through my sunporch and did all around the foundation. I feel he was very professional and did a wonderful job.
