October 15, 2019


Most pests thrive in humid environments and there’s no better place to find this than in damp crawlspaces. One service you might not think of when you think of pest control for your Greenville home is moisture control. However, moisture control services for residential or commercial buildings can be a huge help in keeping pest problems at bay. At Spencer Pest Services, we offer three levels of moisture control with our “Good, Better, Best” CrawlSpace Care® plans.

Types of Moisture Control Services

The BEST option from Spencer’s CrawlSpace Care is the most comprehensive moisture control system. We start by cleaning out your crawlspace and treating the soil to kill microbes. An odor fan is installed, and all vents are sealed. Any existing sub floor is stabilized. Then a plastic liner is installed on the floor and the walls and taped off to form a seal. A dehumidifier is installed with its own outlet, and a high-water alarm and a thermo-hygrometer are put in place. There are several other add-on services available with this plan.
 
The BETTER option includes cleaning out the crawlspace, sealing vents, and treating the soil to kill microbes. Additionally, a dehumidifier is installed, and a plastic liner is sealed to the floor. This vapor barrier, plus, plan does not include sealing the walls.
 
The GOOD option in our CrawlSpace Care plan is the option which includes crawlspace cleanout and a moisture barrier protection liner. Vents that open and close based on temperature are part of this plan.
