Moisture is one of the biggest hazards to your home. Over time, a moist environment can warp surfaces, encourage mold growth, decay wood and even facilitate the reproduction and infestation of pests! Thomas Pest Control can help you solve even the most complex moisture control problems.
Crawlspace Moisture Issues
In the Charlotte area, many homes are built over crawlspaces that are prone to moisture issues that can wreak havoc on the rest of your home.
Excess moisture in your crawlspace can cause:
- Wood decay
- Growth of mold, spores, and fungus
- Warped wood in the habitable areas of your home
- Wet insulation that loses its effectiveness
- Musty smells and mildewed storage
- An attractive environment for pests and termites
How to Solve Moisture Problems
The good news is, preventing a pest infestation or structural issues through smart planning is a lot easier and more cost effective than repairing the damage later. Thomas Pest Control can work with you on a comprehensive moisture control plan that ensures your crawlspace and other moisture-prone areas stay dry and pest-free.
Our solutions include installing moisture-barriers, dehumidifiers, and monitoring devices that help keep your property’s foundation dry, along with after-build modifications that make for a less conducive environment for organic growth.
Moisture control solutions from Thomas Pest are intended not only to preserve the structural integrity of your home, but to prevent infestation by water-loving pests such as termites, carpenter ants, wood-boring beetles, and more.
