Attic and crawlspace tips to look out for:Find The Best Solutions For Your Crawl Space
Improper control of drain water can cause mold/mildew in attics and crawl spaces, lead to serious damage to home structures, and other environmental effects on persons/property.
Moisture issues in the crawl space can damage wood and insulation, leading to dry rot and decay while creating conducive conditions to infesting pests including Wood Destroying Organisms (WDOs) such as termites, carpenter ants and moisture ants. Standing water in your crawl space also provides nourishment to a variety of other pests including rats, mice, raccoons, and snakes, especially if there are open entry points leading from outside.
If your home does not have a crawl space vapor barrier, humidity from the soil can also leech up to the area, contributing further to an unhealthy environment where common allergens and pests can thrive. Air flow naturally rises, bringing crawl space air directly up to living areas if it is not properly contained. A poorly sealed and insulated air duct system can also suck moist, contaminated air from the crawl space or attic, expediting its journey to breathable air inside your home while reducing the energy efficiency of your HVAC system.
Rodents have been invading human living space ever since we holed up in caves. When it comes to rodent control the two most popular nesting sites for rodents are your attic and crawl space. Insulation and vapor barrier is quickly contaminated with urine, feces, and dead rodents that leave behind disease pathogens. The airborne dust from these droppings can be a factor in multiple respiratory diseases including Hantavirus. Our Pest Solutions rodent control technicians use the highest quality personal protective equipment while removing all contaminated insulation, vapor barrier, old construction debris and droppings from pier pads and foundation ledges.
