Crawl Space Moisture
Crawl Space Moisture Services
High moisture in your crawl space can cause significant issues such as microbial growth and damage to your insulation. The air you breathe in your home is shared with the crawl space, so your family breathes in the home whatever you have in your crawl space. High moisture is also conducive to termites and other pests so keeping your crawl space healthy and dry should be a priority.

1. GROUND VAPOR BARRIERS
A standard vapor barrier is at least 6 mil plastic and covers the ground under your home. In the past, vapor barriers were installed covering 85-90% only of the ground. The new standard is to cover 100% of the ground, overlap the plastic at the seams by 6-12 inches, and then tape the seams. If you haven’t had your vapor barrier replaced within the past 10 years call AAA Exterminating of Raleigh for a free evaluation.
2. DEHUMIDIFIER Installation
Sometimes a vapor barrier is not enough. If you have a good vapor barrier in your crawl space but you still have high moisture levels, you may need to consider installing a dehumidifier. Our dehumidifiers are commercial quality and properly sized for your home. We also provide a licensed electrician to install a dedicated outlet to ensure safety and effectiveness.
