Don't Let Moisture Ruin Your Peachtree City Home
Many homeowners deal with moisture problems in their basement or crawl space, but few realize just how harmful moisture build-up can be for the entire house. Excess moisture can produce mold and mildew problems, which are extremely dangerous to your family's health. Moisture leads to water-damaged and rotting wood, which attracts termites and other wood-destroying insects. Moisture also attracts other pests that can cause significant problems for your home and family.
Keeping your basement or crawlspace free of moisture is important. Your local pest control experts at MSI Termite & Pest Control offers vapor barrier installation and crawlspace encapsulation to keep your home free of damaging moisture.
Our Peachtree City Moisture Control Offerings
Before deciding on the course of treatment that will best meet your needs, we'll take the time to talk with you about the problems you've been experiencing and about your future needs. Based on your particular situation, we'll recommend which services will best suit your needs. We may recommend the following services for your home.
We'll apply BoraCare to exposed wood in your crawl space to prevent mold and other fungi from building up. If mold is already present, we'll wipe down the wood before treating it. We recommend that you install a dehumidifier in your basement if you don't already have one.
Vapor Barrier Or Crawlspace Encapsulation
Depending on your needs, we offer vapor barrier installation or encapsulation services for your crawlspace. These services involve installing a poly-plastic barrier that keeps moisture from rising into the wood in your crawlspace. This product keeps the wood dry and sound and prevents mold, termites, and other pests.
Our encapsulation service completely surrounds the entire crawlspace while the vapor barrier provides 95% coverage with about a half foot to a foot of space between the wall and the plastic. Installation generally takes between one to two hours, and the barriers usually last from five to 20 years.
