Why Choose Bug-N-A-Rug Exterminators?

Bug-N-A-Rug’s team of experts is fully equipped with the necessary tools to resolve any moisture control issues you may be facing. In the warmer months or during the times where there is excess rain, condensation and moisture tend to build up in the crawlspace and absorb into the wood and insulation.

This moisture build-up can cause major damage and health issues for you and your family. Excess moisture in the crawlspace of your home can have a devastating structural impact and potentially cost you tens of thousands of dollars in repairs.

Estimates suggest that in America, over one billion dollars worth of damage occurs as a result of excess moisture issues. In the long run, this will depreciate the value of your home.

What Are The Signs Of An Excess Moisture Problem?

Insulation dampness, musty smells, and cupping hardwood floors are among the key indicators of an excess moisture problem in the crawlspace. This increase of moisture will reduce air quality, leading to health problems such as allergies and asthma.

What Are The Biggest Problems Caused By Excess Moisture?

Structural Damage
Moisture issues will cause damage to the structure of your home. Moisture causes rot which can damage the wood in floor joists. If left untreated, the support structures of your home can collapse.

Health Problems
Moisture also causes unwanted health concerns for you and your family, particularly respiratory issues that are impossible to manage without reducing the moisture level in your home.

High Humidity
Moisture in your crawlspace promotes an unnaturally humid environment throughout your house. This can encourage the growth of mold and fungus which will damage your home and can also trigger allergy and asthma symptoms for those living inside. Mold is also responsible for bringing bacteria into your home, and with it, the danger of infection.

Insulation Damage
Excess moisture will also negatively impact the insulation in your home. As insulation becomes damaged, it doesn't work as well. You will therefore end up spending more to keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Pest Attraction
Lastly, warm, damp spaces attract insects such as cockroaches and termites. Many pests love damp, decaying wood and a moist, humid environment. Therefore, a crawlspace with excess moisture is the perfect food source and breeding ground for unwanted visitors. If left untreated, you'll not only have a moisture problem, but you’ll also have a pest infestation on your hands.
