Prevent Wood Decaying Fungus & More with Terminix® Moisture Control

Imagine what would happen if someone dumped 19 gallons of water in your living room every day.

The exposed ground under your home gives off water vapor—as much as 19 gallons a day in the average crawl space area. It rises silently and permeates the structure of your home. It goes through wood, brick, insulation and even concrete slabs, making moisture control a serious concern for nearly all homeowners.

In addition to causing extensive structural damage, excessive moisture mildews carpets, furnishings, and clothes, increases heat loss and creates sour odors in the crawl space itself, and serves as prime breeding grounds for termites, roaches, and other destructive insects.

Five-Part Terminix® Crawl Space Moisture Control System

Crawl spaces are excellent breeding ground for insects, rodents, termites and wood-decay fungus. In efforts to help you prevent excessive moisture and significant structural damage in your NC or VA crawl space, we offer a five-part crawl space moisture control system.

The Terminix® Moisture Control System is designed to help eliminate:

  • Insect and rodent infestations
  • Problem property inspections
  • Odors associated with mildew contamination
  • Moisture damage to wooden floors, insulation, structural components

It involves flood alert notification, an automatic sump pump (or french drain), premium vapor barrier package, state-of-the-art dehumidifier and crawl space encapsulation.


Moisture Control the Terminix® Way

The better built your home, the greater the risk for excessive moisture. Since tighter joints and better insulation hold in moisture and increase condensation, the best built and more modern homes are most likely to need moisture control. The result is considerable water damage, which at this time could have caused considerable damage.

Moisture has early warning signs. If you want to prevent moisture problems and reduce the chance of insect infestations in your home, contact the moisture control specialists at Terminix®. We’re the leader in implementing moisture control measures in crawl spaces and other environments from Eastern North Carolina to Tidewater, VA.
