Crawl Space Services (Encapsulation)
Eliminating moisture beneath the home takes away a possible breeding ground for subterranean termites. It also helps prevent buckling of wooden floors, helps prevent mold in the wood beneath the home, and helps provide cleaner air within the home.

Dehumidifier SystemsMany crawlspaces under houses are vulnerable to attack by wood destroying fungi due to excess moisture. When the wood moisture content of the wood reached 28% or greater wood destroying fungi begins to attack the wood. This fungi, if not stopped, will eventually cause structural damage to the subfloor. The only way to permanently stop this fungi is through moisture control. This is best achieved with a dehumidifier system.
All holes, vents, and other areas that allow warm humid air to enter the crawlspace are sealed off. Then, a moisture barrier is installed on the ground to prevent ground moisture to enter into the crawlspace. Once this is completed a commercial grade dehumidifier is installed in the crawl space and soon moisture levels are down to a safe and normal range of 10% to 17%.
