Let’s shed some light on the subject of an ongoing debate within the pest control services industry: crawl space sealing. While some professionals and property owners swear by its effectiveness in keeping pests and rodents at bay, others remain skeptical. At New Horizon Pest Solutions, we believe there is a compelling case for why crawl space sealing should be a priority on your property maintenance checklist.

One of the key advantages of crawl space sealing is a waterproof barrier that safeguards your home’s foundation against excessive moisture and high humidity. These conditions can lead to various issues, such as the proliferation of wood-rotting mold, fungi, and water damage. Additionally, such environments create a welcoming habitat for wood-eating pests like termites. These pests devour the foundation and reproduce within wooden joints, leading to severe structural degradation. By sealing the crawl space, moisture levels are regulated, keeping these destructive pests out.

Moreover, crawlspace sealing provides a physical barrier that acts as the first line of defense against sneaky critters like rats. As you know, rats and mice can squeeze through the tiniest openings on your property. An open crawl space poses no challenge for them, providing easier access to your property’s interior through open vents and floorboards. Properly sealing your crawl space reduces their ability to infiltrate your space, making it harder for them to catch you off guard and denying them a convenient hiding spot.
