Crawl Space & Attic Restoration
What’s lurking under YOUR home?
If your house has a crawl space, when is the last time you were in it? Often the most neglected part of a home, most people do not realize how important a professional crawl space restoration is for structural protection, energy efficiency and environmental health.
Moisture issues in the crawl space can damage wood and insulation, leading to dry rot and decay while creating conducive conditions to infesting pests including Wood Destroying Organisms (WDOs) such as termites, carpenter ants and moisture ants. Standing water in your crawl space also provides nourishment to a variety of other pests including rats, mice, raccoons, and snakes, especially if there are open entry points leading from outside.
If your home does not have a crawl space vapor barrier, humidity from the soil can also leech up to the area, contributing further to an unhealthy environment where common allergens and pests can thrive. Air flow naturally rises, bringing crawl space air directly up to living areas if it is not properly contained. A poorly sealed and insulated air duct system can also suck moist, contaminated air from the crawl space or attic, expediting its journey to breathable air inside your home while reducing the energy efficiency of your HVAC system.
In addition to pest control and indoor air quality services, Alpha Ecological also provides excellent crawl space and restoration services. Our professional teams will remove and replace contaminated crawl space insulation and the vapor barrier; clean out crawl space debris, provide sump pump installation and crawl space decontamination, as well as conduct rodent exclusion services (sealing and screening entry points to the crawl space).
Further protecting your home, we also offer sewage remediation, dry rot repair and foundation repair, as well as structural repairs and additions.
