Wood-Rot in Crawl Space
With high levels of moisture comes wood-rot. Expect a crawl space that holds a moisture level of 19% or higher to produce wood decay and damage. If neglected, this could produce extensive damage to your sub-floor, beams and floor joist. It is important to know that moisture levels can vary depending on time of year and humidity levels outside. A home that is inspected in January can have a moisture level of 0, but that same home in July could read 22% or higher. It is common for a termite/moisture company to recommend a fungi treatment when wood decay is present. This alone will not solve the problem, only address a symptom. A combination of having a micro-encapsulation system installed as well as installing a dehumidifier may better suit the underlying issue. We offer a full structural repair service. We have literally repaired thousands of floor joist and beams with damage due to termites and wood decay.

Condensation in Your Crawl Space
Huge crawl space issues happen when humid outside air meets the cold from the HVAC/duct work in the warmer months. Hot and cold will mix to create condensation. Homes with no duct work in the crawl space will still have this issue since there is interior cool air making the floors cold.
With the extreme heat and dampness in the south, humidity is everywhere! As a homeowner, you need to stop the humid outside air from entering the home to react with low temperatures of the AC. Believe it or not, rain can occur in your crawl space. Condensation on your sub-floor, insulation and duct lines will drip on the ground effectively making your crawl space a mud-pit. Our Uni-Guard Crawl Space Encapsulation along with a dehumidifier will take care of this issue.
How We Install Our Uni-Guard Crawl Space Encapsulation System
Universal Pest & Termite has extensive experience in installing Uni-Guard Crawl Space Encapsulation systems under homes. This is a step-by-step process of installation: 1.) We start by performing a Full Termite Treatment to the structure. This is vital as the foundation and soil will be covered. 2.) We then apply a borate product to the sub-floor and ban-board area above exterior foundation walls. This will be extra termite protection. We then clean any debris out of your crawl space while leveling the soil as best we can. 3.) After a limited clean-out and treatment, the technician will install a 2 inch R-13 foam insulation board along the interior side of the foundation walls. A 1-2 inch inspection gap will be left at the top of the board to ensure a termite inspection can be made in the future. This foam board holds an R value for insulated protection. 4.)A 24 inch foam board section will be installed on the ground along the foundation walls. 5.) When the foam board installation is complete, we will then install a 20-mil poly ground cover at 100%. All seams are taped with a 6 inch overlap. Each pier will be wrapped with the poly and seams are taped. 6.) All debris will be removed after completion. Depending on square footage, expect completion of the job to be two to seven days. A dehumidifier will be installed to help control Dampness, Pests, Moisture and Humidity.
