A Vapor Barrier from Terminix® Stops Hidden Moisture Damage

If you’ve got a dirt crawl space, the chances are high you’re in need of a vapor barrier from Terminix®. Excess moisture not only contributes to higher risks of bug infestations, if can cause real structural and environmental damage to your home which often stays undetected until very late stages.

Unfortunately, the better built your home, the greater the danger from excessive moisture. Since tighter joints and better insulation hold in moisture and increase condensation, the best-built and more modern homes are the most vulnerable.
