Helping Hickory Since 1966
For decades, A-1 Pest Control has been proud to help Hickory homeowners with everything from preventative care to extermination. In our time serving western North Carolina homeowners, we’ve worked to perfect our approach to all aspects of pest control and prevention—and one of the most important components of that prevention: Crawl space care.
Effective Crawlspace Care
One of the most common crawl space concerns for Hickory homeowners is, as you may have guessed, moisture. High levels of moisture—like those present in North Carolina for much of the year—in a crawl space have proven to be bad both for the structure of the crawlspace itself, and for the quality of your home overall, leading to issues like:
- Insect infestations
- Poor air quality throughout your home
- High levels of humidity
With all that at stake, many homeowners in Hickory and surrounding cities choose to encapsulate this space.
At A-1, our encapsulation process is thorough and designed to last as long as 20 years, so you don’t have to worry about what may be going on right beneath your feet while you enjoy your home. Here’s a look at how we get the job done:
- First, we line the floors and foundation with a polyethylene liner that prevents moisture from getting in. These barriers are stronger and longer lasting than many vapor barriers you can find at retail stores.
- Then, we move on to closing off all openings, like vents and doors, that may allow extra moisture to seep in.
- Finally, to make sure the effects last, we install a Santa-Fe dehumidifier. This will work constantly to pull moisture from the air, preventing any future problems with mold or moisture, and warding off some pests.
Done correctly by a team of experts, you can still use your crawl space for storage just as you would a non-encapsulated one. We can even work with you on access points like airtight doors that will still allow you use of your space!
