Crawl Space Restoration

A Crawl Space Restorationis needed when at least 30% of the crawl space including insulation, vapor barrier, foundation, and footings are contaminated with rodent droppings or urine. This can become a health hazard to the home owner, as the rodent droppings dry, they become air born, then vaccuumed into the air ducts, and delivered into the home. Our crawl space restoration is the process of removing insulation, vapor barrier and other loose debris from a crawl space due to rodent (or other vertebrate animal) contamination. By removing the insulation and vapor barrier, we are eliminating the rodent harborage and communication barrier, making the area less desirable for existing and future rodent activity. We also remove existing rodent droppings from thefoundation, mudsill, and footers. After cleanup is completed, we go throughwith a “fine-toothed-comb” inspecting for any possible rodent entry points that would allow future contamination. We repair/ replace any missing or damaged vent screens and fill plumbing entry points with an expanding foam or copper mesh. Finally, we install new 6 ml vapor barrier and decontaminate the crawl space with an anti-microbial fogger. Some benefits of a completed crawl space restoration are improved air quality and energy efficiency in the house, and no more future mice, rat, possum, or raccoon activity. Oftentimes plumbing leaks, dangerous electrical hazards, and wood destroying organisms can be discovered. These problems are often overlooked, because they are concealed by the insulation.
