Protecting against future infestations improves customer satisfaction and protects your company's warranty and reputation. Offering high-capacity dehumidification also allows you to differentiate your business by offering customers a solution that is more complete and longer lasting than that of your competitors.
Termites need water to live and unfortunately many crawlspaces provide more than enough to sustain a subterranean infestation. Water in crawlspaces can come from leaky or sweaty pipes, improper surface drainage, failed sub-pump and more. The more moisture present, the happier and more plentiful the termites. It's best to attempt to keep humidity levels in the crawlspace below 50 percent to prevent a breeding ground for termites as well as mold, bacteria, dust mites and rot.
As you know, preventing moisture requires sealing the crawlspace by patching leaks and ensuring proper drainage. To keep moisture in the air under control, a high-capacity dehumidifier should be installed. Proper sealing with control of excess humidity will help you protect your extermination jobs for years to come.
