A tad between humid continental and humid subtropical climates, Covington, Kentucky, is known for its particularly hot and humid summers. It’s great for outdoor enthusiasts, but that level of humidity calls for an elevated foundation to keep a structurally sound home—which is why crawl spaces are more effective than concrete foundations in Covington.
When you think of crawl spaces, shadowy, soggy, mucky, and smelly places jump to mind. These dingy caves are often creeping with mold growth, too, which is a liability that homeowners certainly want to avoid. It is a risk to both your home and your family’s health.
It doesn’t have to be this way. It doesn’t need to be anything like the crawl space you imagine in your worst nightmares. Maintenance and attention from professionals can transform a damp, dank, and dark crawl space into a dry, clean, and safe place without the drama.
Crawl space problems in Covington
This may sound obvious, but if you notice condensation droplets around your ductwork, pipes, or vents, it is best to take immediate action. Wood rot, damp insulation, and the presence of mold or mildew speak volumes about the excessive humidity in the air, which is often the chief cause. It is undeniable; Covington sure is humid.
Mold and rot release musty, unpleasant odors, which leech upstairs and penetrate the home. Humidity doesn’t only make the insulation soggy but also rises up against your living space. It puts a strain on the air conditioning, which must compensate for the increased humidity levels by working harder.
Moist air doesn’t just damage wood and insulation. The condensation and pooled water from frequent rainstorms also invite rodents, insects, and critters to creep beneath your crawlspace. Rodents chew through insulation and electrical wiring, and their droppings contaminate the air you breathe.
Ideally, air contamination from fecal matter can be avoided with properly sealed ducts. Unfortunately, ductwork often isn’t well-sealed, leading to complications.
How do our crawlspace cleaning services help?
We offer numerous solutions for excessive moisture, which you can use individually or alongside other moisture control solutions. A vapor barrier for your crawl space seals out the humidity, preventing moisture from seeping into the crawl space structures and ensuring it stays completely dry. The treatment also keeps mildew and mold away, preventing structural damage.
To deal with rodent or pest infestations, thorough cleaning and extermination is a good start. Once the infestation has subsided, the professionals will seal all entry points, exposed vents, ducts, cracks, and remaining gaps to prevent the pests from finding their way into the crawl space again.
