Crawlspace Problems? Find Insulation Solutions


Your home’s crawlspace may often be out of sight, but it should never be out of mind. Crawlspace problems can lead to a host of issues, from unwanted pests infiltrating your living space to high energy costs due to inefficient insulation. At Honor Guard Pest Control, we understand the significance of addressing challenges to ensure a comfortable and pest-free home. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the importance of proper insulation solutions for crawlspace problems and delve into the innovative technologies we offer to transform your crawlspace into a well-protected and energy-efficient part of your home.

A Dual Solution for Pest Control

EPA-registered TAP pest control insulation is a revolutionary solution that tackles two critical issues simultaneously – pest control and energy efficiency. By effectively controlling common household pests like ants, boxelder bugs, centipedes, cockroaches, millipedes, silverfish, and stink bugs, TAP insulation ensures your home remains pest-free throughout the year.

What makes TAP insulation truly unique is its green nature and alignment with current Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques. This means that while it keeps pests at bay, it also contributes to maintaining the air in your living areas comfortable and free from unwanted invaders. Moreover, TAP insulation minimizes the energy required to heat or cool your home, leading to significant savings on your heating and cooling costs.

Crawlspace Encapsulation and Moisture Control

The importance of a well-maintained crawlspace cannot be overstated. Proper insulation and moisture control play a crucial role in the overall health and efficiency of your home. Without these measures, a myriad of problems can arise, impacting both your living comfort and your wallet.

One of the significant issues related to crawlspace problems is the stack effect or convection process. Air movement between the crawlspace and the house allows not only air but also pollutants, odors, fungus spores, and dust mite feces to enter your living areas. These contaminants can lead to respiratory problems, including allergies and asthma, compromising your family’s health.

Additionally, excess moisture in a vented, dirt-floored crawlspace can lead to insulation damage and promote the growth of mold and fungus. This can not only undermine your home’s energy efficiency but also jeopardize the structural integrity of your property.

Solutions To Your Crawlspace Problems

At Honor Guard Pest Control, we prioritize crawlspace problems, and we’ve designed our comprehensive encapsulation and moisture control services to address these challenges effectively. With our multi-step approach, we transform your crawlspace into a dry, clean, and energy-efficient space, safeguarding both your home and your loved ones.

1: Install Airtight Doors & Vent Covers

  • Sealing crawl space doors and vents stops the cycle of cold, humidity, and moisture entering from the outside air. This crucial step prevents unwanted airflow and contaminants from infiltrating your home.

2: Remove Standing Water Sources

  • Our experts will eliminate any sources of flooding in your crawlspace by installing a crawl space drain and sump pump system. This ensures that flooding water is effectively removed, keeping your crawlspace dry and free from moisture-related issues.

3: Encapsulate & Insulate the Crawlspace

  • To stop moisture from passing through your floors and porous concrete walls, a durable crawl space vapor barrier and liner will be installed. This transformational step not only protects against moisture infiltration but also creates usable storage space in your crawlspace. Additionally, we will install high-quality insulation to enhance the energy efficiency of your home.

4: Install a Dehumidifier

  • Maintain optimal humidity levels and protect your crawlspace from mold, dust mites, and mildew. Use our energy-efficient, self-draining crawl space dehumidifier. The included air filter ensures clean and fresh air in your living spaces by removing particles.
