Crawl Space Services in The Triangle
Approximately 50% of the air in your home comes from the crawl space, so you want to make sure it’s in good condition. Scott’s offers crawl space services to help with moisture problems, destructive insects, standing water, and more. We make it easy to have a healthy home!
Comprehensive Crawl Space Inspections
If you’re like most homeowners, you rarely go into your crawl space—maybe you’ve never been down there at all. This means there can be countless problems that you’re unaware of. To make sure your home and family are safe, we offer comprehensive crawl space inspections. We’ll then offer the best treatment recommendations based on what we find.
During the inspection, our technicians will:
- Take moisture readings to ensure your home isn’t too damp.
- Search for standing water and find its source.
- Check for fungus and mildew on your subflooring, foundation walls, and other surfaces.
- Look for evidence of wood-destroying insects like powder post beetles and house borers.
Sump Pump Installation
If you have a basement, you should have a sump pump. This device is installed at the lowest point in your home to prevent flooding and standing water. It detects water levels and automatically switches on to divert excess water into a discharge pipe and away from your home. Sump pumps prevent moisture issues before they happen, saving you both time and money!
Crawl Space Insulation
Proper crawl space insulation is important for lowering energy costs and preserving the air quality inside your home. Over time, however, insulation can wear down. Harsh weather conditions, pest problems, and moisture issues can damage insulation and spread allergens. If it’s time for a replacement, trust Scott’s! We’ll remove old insulation and install a high-quality replacement.
The year-round humidity in North Carolina is not only uncomfortable, but it can also damage your crawl space. High outdoor humidity, condensation from ductwork, and ground moisture evaporation can all cause moisture issues. Excess moisture contributes to fungal growth, allergens, and can warp your home’s wooden structural supports. A dehumidifier will help by pulling water from the air, keeping the humidity level in a safe range.
