U.S. Pest Protection ENCAPSULATION SERVICES

 In Blog

Did you know that the average crawl space absorbs nearly 20 gallons of water vapor every day! Excessive moisture can cause structural damage and can provide the perfect environment for mold, wood rot, and insect infestations. And that’s why we offer encapsulation services.

ENCAPSULATION SERVICES FROM U.S. PEST

When a U.S. Pest Professional comes to your home to perform an encapsulation, they’ll completely clean your crawlspace of debris. Next, cracks, openings, and any remaining holes where air can enter your crawlspace will be sealed. Once the sealing process is complete, custom styrofoam covers are fitted over any vent openings.

At this point, the foundation walls, floor joists, and subfloor will be completely treated with an antifungal and termite control product. Finally, we install a 6 mil clear poly sheeting on the walls, around supports, and covering the ground. Once the poly has been taped and sealed at the joints, a dehumidifier is placed in the crawlspace for maximum moisture removal.
