Moisture & Wood-Destroying Insects
Whether it’s a muggy summer or a damp winter, North Carolina weather lends itself to humid conditions. Unfortunately, there are many local pests that take advantage of wood structures that absorb the moisture in the air throughout the year.
Many of these insects feed on wood fibers called cellulose or make their nests by drilling into wood. Wood softened by humidity makes an easy meal and an ideal nesting spot, especially since these pests need water sources as well.
Controlling Crawl Space Mildew
Excess moisture doesn’t just attract insects. It also creates a favorable environment for crawl space mildew. Having mildew in your crawl space can lead to structural damage and health issues. While unpleasant, mildew might not sound like an urgent matter at first, but it won't take long before it turns into dangerous mold. When not properly treated, crawl space mildew can cause:
- Decaying structural beams and warped floors in your home
- Water stains and damage
- An unpleasant, musty odor
- Allergy symptoms due to the mold spores in the air, such as coughing, rashes, and itching
