Savannah, Georgia (PRWEB) June 11, 2015
The summer months in Southeast Georgia bring weather that's even more muggy and humid than usual, which can exacerbate problems that arise within a crawl space. Economic Exterminators can help prevent warped floors, improve indoor air quality, and exterminate termites and other pests through crawl space encapsulation; give them a call this June before the summer weather sets in.
The crawl space- the small area beneath the flooring of a home that houses wiring and plumbing- is not a place that most people want to visit. It is typically described by words such as dark, damp, and dirty; an unpleasant place indeed. What can be more unpleasant, however, are the things living inside a crawl space (and the problems that they cause) that are essential for homeowners to understand.
Many pests, from termites, spiders, and other bugs to snakes and rodents, like to call crawl spaces “home”. In this part of the country, subterranean termite colonies are an especially large problem, eating away at people’s biggest investment: their houses. Unfortunately, termites and other pests are not the only potential problem that plague crawl spaces. Moisture is one of the biggest culprits beneath a home. Living in one of the most humid areas in the United States, this is an especially pertinent issue; high humidity levels can cause mold growth, which often leads to warped floors. It can also deteriorate the air quality in a home.
Since venturing inside a crawl space is the only way to uncover visible evidence of many of these issues, it’s easy to become fooled into believing that one’s crawl space is critter, mold, and moisture free. Simply put, just because someone doesn’t see any evidence certainly doesn’t mean their crawl space is clean. By the time problems are noticed above the flooring, the damage beneath is often extensive and costly to repair.
Economic Exterminators, however, provides the preemptive strike needed to rid a crawl space of potential problems. Their solution? Crawl space encapsulation, or as they call it, "Crawl Space Clean". Essentially, encapsulation involves placing a moisture-proof barrier beneath a home, sealing out both moisture and pests.
Without Crawl Space Clean, waste from disease-carrying pests, combined with mold and mildew that thrives in the dark, damp conditions commonly found in crawl spaces can pollute the air in a living space and aggravate allergies and sinuses. Since 40% or more of the air people breathe indoors comes from beneath their home, a clean crawl space is essential for improving air quality as well as controlling temperature. As moist, humid air rises through the floors, it forces the air conditioner work over time in the summer months. Moisture can also destroy flooring, making it warp and buckle. The damage caused by a dirty crawl space is often expensive and difficult, as well as time consuming to repair.
To protect one’s home and family and also save on energy and repair costs, Economic Exterminators should be the first call for crawl space encapsulation, as well as pest, rodent, and termite control services. Locally owned since 1951, they’ve spent many dedicated years helping to keep Savannah, Richmond Hill, Rincon, and the surrounding areas Crawl Space Clean.
