Crawl spaces and foundations can become an open invitation for pests to invade your home. Maintaining a pest-free space means doing more than just regularly treating the lived-in parts of your home, but also evaluating and mitigating areas where pests can proliferate – your foundations and crawl spaces.
Few people regularly check their foundations and crawl spaces for signs of infestation, but they are a critical entry point for pests. Moisture can build up, degrading the integrity of your foundation and causing long-term pest problems. The experts at Peachtree Pest Control can evaluate your often-overlooked spaces and help you mitigate future issues.
Maintaining Healthy Foundations and Crawl Spaces
This moisture under your home naturally comes from evaporation from the soil. Moisture causes mildew, fungi and rot that weaken structures, especially in vulnerable crawl spaces under your home. At Peachtree Pest Control, we do so much more than simply spraying for pests. We provide a multifaceted approach of your home, including identifying repairs and moisture control solutions to discourage infestations from returning. This is part of our IPM methodology.
Improving Air Flow
Excess moisture and poor ventilation can contribute to poor airflow.
What We Offer
We provide a number of solutions to maintain healthy crawl spaces and foundations and improve air quality, including:
- Foundation Vents –Ventilating your foundations and crawl spaces helps keep moisture under control. At Peachtree Pest Control, we use automatic foundation vents that sense temperatures and moisture levels, opening and closing by based on the outside temperature. This energy-saving solution saves you money while preventing rot, mildew, and termite infestation.
- Vapor Barriers –When moisture condenses on the wood in your foundation, it can cause lasting damage. Vapor barriers prevent condensation and groundwater from collecting on wood structures.
- Floor Supports –Over time, the substructure of your home weakens. We can install more substantial floor supports to provide an extra level of protection.
- Crawl Space Fans –Like foundation vents, crawl space fans support moisture mitigation, discouraging pest and mold proliferation. The fan draws air out of the crawl space, keeping it dry and well-ventilated, especially in humid environments. A trained professional should install the fan to ensure the fan doesn’t become another opening for pests to enter your home.
