Now that the cool fall weather has arrived, Otho's Pest Management urges homeowners to check around the foundation of their homes for cracks. Any cracks found could be a sign of crawlspace moisture control issues.

A cracked home foundation can allow extra moisture into the home or outside critters like insects or mice. The same can be true of homes that run cable into the house. These cracks allow cold air inside the home during the winter. Moisture also allows for increased mold generation to enter the home.

Contact a pest control professional like Otho’s Pest Management to safely remove the threat of cracked foundations. Otho’s expert crawlspace moisture control methods include a vapor barrier. This vapor barrier of polyethylene is sprayed over the soil to help temperature control and moisture coming from the ground. Otho’s will also use R-19 insulation treatment and a dehumidifier to help with moisture control problems.

Some crawl spaces require an install of a sump pump because of standing water in the basement or crawlspace and it must be drained out. Otho's Pest Management supplies all the necessary tools to get the moisture control job done right the first time.

Otho's also passes extra savings on to homeowners if a plumber or electrician is needed to rewire sockets that are causing extra moisture to come in. These service professionals are available at no extra cost to their customers.
