Protect Your Aiken, SC & Augusta, GA Home While Lowering Energy Costs
Moist areas draw pests like moths to a flame! These areas are also prone to mold and mildew, which can cause health problems for members of your family. To help prevent moisture retention in your home, Jury Pest Services offers crawlspace encapsulation services to eliminate moisture issues in your crawlspace or basement. Not only does this service decrease the chance of a pest infestation and eliminate mold and mildew problems, but it also has the added benefit of reducing your power bill by up to 18%. That’s what we call a win-win!
Our Crawlspace Encapsulation Service Process
At Jury Pest Services, we begin each encapsulation service with an inspection to assess any moisture damage to the wood in your crawlspace. We then apply a treatment to the wood, and we clean up the area before installing anything.
Our crawlspace encapsulation service includes the following:
Wrapping the walls and floor.
Laying down a floor system.
Installing LED lights.
Changing doors, if necessary.
Installing a dehumidifying system.
Once your service is complete, your crawlspace will no longer retain moisture, and any moisture that does get in will be taken care of by the dehumidifier.
What's Causing Moisture In Your Crawlspace?
Most homes built without a basement or slab have a crawlspace. This area is typically small, with just enough space to crawl around in and has a dirt floor. The purpose of a crawlspace is twofold; it allows air to circulate through your house and allows easy access to plumbing fixtures, electrical wiring, and other similar items.
Until recently it was encouraged, and sometimes required, that crawlspaces vent directly outside. However, in recent years air conditioning has become commonplace, and in most homes the ductwork for these systems runs through the crawlspace. When hot outdoor air comes into contact with surfaces cooled by the ductwork, condensation forms, causing moisture problems that can lead to mold, mildew, and the perfect living environment for all kinds of destructive pests. At Jury Pest Services, we have a solution to this moisture problem - encapsulation services. Our services use vapor barriers to protect your crawlspace from damaging moisture problems.
