Excess Moisture Is The Enemy Of Your Charleston, SC Home
When you live in a place like Charleston, you get used to dealing with humidity. You can’t change the weather, so you simply learn to live with it. However, in some instances, it’s important to figure out a way to eliminate the humidity.
If moisture builds up in the crawlspace under your house, it can cause serious problems. From developing mold that is harmful to your health to rotting the wood beams that support your house to attracting common Charleston pests that will further harm you and your home, moisture is a big problem. Luckily, Anchor Pest Management offers moisture control services to keep your crawlspace moisture-free.
Our Moisture Control Offerings
At Anchor Pest Management, we offer several services to eliminate your moisture problems. We’ll inspect your crawl space to determine what the issues are, then recommend the course of treatment that will best meet your needs.
Our services include the following:
Moisture Barrier Installation
We’ll begin by leveling out your crawlspace, then installing a moisture barrier across the top of it to keep moisture from getting to the wood structures of your house.
If mold or other fungi have begun to build up on the wooden structures in your crawlspace, we will kill the spores and treat the wood to protect it from future problems.
In some instances, the moisture buildup is enough that it requires more than a barrier to keep it out. We install dehumidifiers in crawlspaces, then service them quarterly to check them and change the filters.
Sump Pump Installation
If standing water is an issue for your crawl space, a sump pump may be required to dry it out. We install sump pumps in the low areas of crawlspaces to eliminate standing water and remove groundwater.
Crawlspace Vent & Fan System Installation
If you have a vent and fan system that needs replacing, we’ll do it for you. These systems keep moisture out, allowing your crawlspace to remain dry.
