Pests like rodents, termites, and other insects require excess moisture provided by crawl spaces to survive. Thin-skinned pests like termites, mosquitoes, and silver wigs are extremely susceptible to properly balanced moisture. These insects do everything in their power to stay near sources of heavy moisture. Termites will feast on damp and decaying wood for nutrition and easy access to your home. Encapsulating your crawl space reduces access points for termites by keeping your home dry.
After a pest infestation, you may be on the hook for foundational repairs, water damage, hospital visits, and extermination costs.
Crawl space pest control is a cost-effective measure to protect your home's structure and the home's occupants.
If you already have pests, you’ll first need to contact an exterminator. They can clear out the existing inhabitants of your basement so you can focus on making sure they don’t come back.
After that, an experienced waterproofing professional from AprilAire can close off any gaps or openings, with crawl space encapsulation and install an AprilAire E070 crawl space dehumidifier. The E070 is engineered specifically for crawl space. These tools will keep your crawl space dry and protected from major pest infestations.
