TERMITES AND OTHER PESTS

Termites and pests often enter homes in search of food and shelter. Crawl spaces present as a perfect home as they offer cooler temperatures, nesting materials and plenty of moisture. And for termites, your wood structure is a food source. To deter critters and bugs, you must remove their water source and take measures to prevent access into the crawl space.

Southern Climate Solutions has been tackling moisture issues in crawl spaces for over two decades. With our solutions, we can help prevent termites and other moisture seeking pests. And, our clear vapor barriers are inspection friendly!

Termites cause an average of $5 billion dollars of damage a year by burrowing into wood and creating tunnels that threaten the structural integrity of homes. In areas across the Gulf Coast humidity gets trapped in the crawl space, creating a perfect breeding ground for termites.

‘The floor (at my rental home) is almost completely laid back down, which is great. Also, the bug man said I had the best and cleanest crawlspace he had seen in East Hill. Thanks!’

PREVENTING TERMITES AND PESTS IN THE CRAWL SPACE

The most effective way to deal with termites and pests is to prevent access and remove the moisture they thrive on.  With encapsulation and dehumidification, a controlled environment is created where excess moisture is removed from the crawl and humidity can be maintained at safe levels.  In addition, the crawl space is sealed using a durable barrier on the ground and around the perimeter of the crawl space, vents are sealed off and an access is limited to an aluminum door which is bolted to the wood structure.

With this crawl space application, we will deter pests and termites from the crawl, all while creating a healthy indoor environment where both crawl space and indoor relative humidity will be maintained at 40%-50%.

Our products are fully warrantied. Our commercial grade dehumidifiers come with some of the best warranties in the market. And we offer a lifetime warranty on our vapor barriers.

After two decades of creating healthy homes, we have 100% satisfied customers, which is a testament to our superior knowledge regarding moisture control, efficient installations, fair pricing and outstanding results.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT CRAWL SPACE ISSUES

Can the mold in my crawl space get into my home?
Nearly 50% of the air we breathe inside our homes comes from the crawl space. When the AC is running, negative pressure is created inside the home, creating a wicking effect that pulls the unhealthy air from the crawl space into the home. This air is moist, and creates a potential mold hazard inside your home.
Will mold remediation take care of my mold issues?
While remediation is sometimes necessary, it is not preventing the mold from returning. The underlying cause of mold growth is moisture. To prevent mold, you must eliminate the excess moisture. Encapsulation and dehumidification is an effective, preventative solution.
Will a ground barrier without dehumidification help?
Without dehumidification, encapsulation can make your moisture issues in the crawl space worse. The moisture in the crawl space remains trapped and contributes to wood rot and structural issues.
