Our Columbia Moisture Control Options

Too much moisture is a problem for any property. For one thing, it can lead to mold growth, and when mold spores make their way into your indoor air quality and enter your lungs, they can cause coughing, sneezing, throat irritation, and other health problems. On top of this, mold eats away at the structural integrity of your property, wearing down wood faster and leading to potentially unsafe damage. And as our pest control experts know firsthand, too much moisture also attracts pests, including termites, rodents, mosquitos, cockroaches, and other insects that pose a risk to your family’s comfort. Fortunately, you’ll never have to worry about that as long as you’ve got Modern Exterminating on your side. Our team can offer a wide range of solutions to help eliminate moisture problems, protecting your household and your property from pests, mold, and other issues.

Modern Exterminating is proud to offer moisture control devices in Columbia, SC including:

  • Santa Fe™ Free-Standing Dehumidifiers: Santa Fe’s high-efficiency dehumidifiers remove odor-causing moisture and can maintain 50% relative humidity as recommended by the EPA, ASHRAE ( American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning ), American Lung Association, and American Medical Association.
  • Polyethylene Moisture Barriers: The practice of installing six-millimeter polyethylene in crawlspace surfaces helps assist in the control of excess moisture vapor. Clemson University Regulatory Public Service Programs and Department of Pesticide Regulation recommends 80% ground coverage when using this cutting-edge technology.
  • Temperature Control Ventilators: These passive vents are widely used and work well to ventilate most crawlspaces. They are highly effective because they are temperature sensitive, opening completely at approximately 70®F and closing at approximately 40®F.
  • Power Vents: When more aggressive ventilation systems are required, power foundation vents with a thermostat and humidistat are the best option. Power vents are usually recommended when a residential property does not meet one vent per 150 square feet around the perimeter of a structure.
  • Exhaust Fans: Utility Shutter Mounted Exhaust Fans are designed for the purpose of increasing crawlspace airflow. These appliances are timer-required and come with U.L. approved wiring.
  • French Drains: French Drain or weeping tile is a trench filled with gravel or containing perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from an area. This is a useful system for the removal of standing water from a crawl space.
  • Sump Pumps: The purpose of a sump pump is to help keep basements or crawlspaces dry when it rains or an extreme weather event occurs. As any knowledgeable plumber will tell you, these appliances are essential for homes with basements, especially in parts of the country that get a lot of precipitation.
