Restoring Your Bloomington Crawlspace
Rooms in your home that have been compromised by wildlife feces and urine are at risk of serious damage. Once your animal is gone, there's still repair to consider, and sometimes it can be overwhelming. Wildlife whose final resting place is in your crawlspace present a hazard all their own, but their presence can also cause damage to your pipes or insulation.
Fixing Your Pipes & Insulation
Insulation and pipe damage can both lead to inefficient energy consumption, causing a big impact on your wallet. Water leaks can also be costly and problematic for your crawlspace. Call Critter Control of Bloomington today for information on solving your crawlspace wildlife problems and damage!
What To Watch Out For
Unwanted critters in your crawl space can cause several unwanted issues. For starters if you have an animal in your crawl space you already need repairs. Unwanted pests can cause health issues from waste and disease, in addition to causing structural damage to your home. To make things even better, all animals eat so if you have a critter living in your crawl space chances are they’re bringing in food, which can attract even more unwanted critters.
Animals In The Crawlspace
A common problem that Bloomington residents face is animals in the crawlspace. Wildlife that often get into the crawlspace are mice, rats, raccoons, and opossums. These animals like a warm, dark place to make a nest. They will use your insulation to pad their new den, and may also chew wire you have in your crawlspace. Signs of animals in the crawlspace include scratching and scurrying sounds. You may also see signs of the animals entering your home such as damaged vent covers.
Crawl Space Encapsulations
A crawl space encapsulation is the installation of a heavy-duty moisture barrier to your crawlspace that has a dirt floor. If your home has an open vented crawl space, you may have mold or mildew problems, which can be damaging to your home. Moisture can also lead to termite infestations. Luckily, crawl space encapsulation can fix the issue. Our team will completely seal your crawlspace to ensure you no longer struggle with moisture issues in the crawlspace. We can also look to be sure there is proper drainage from your crawlspace before encapsulating it to be sure water isn't sitting against your home causing more damage.
Crawl Space Insulation
Crawl space insulation serves a different purpose than crawlspace encapsulation. Crawl space insulation is great for warming up your home. It does not seal the area from moisture. When your crawlspace has a combination of insulation and encapsulation, your home will be in top shape!
Crawl Space Repair
If you have had animals in your crawlspace, you likely need crawlspace repair. Animals like to chew the insulation and chew the wires in your crawlspace. If you've had animals in your crawlspace, you also have animal droppings left behind that need to be cleaned up. Animal droppings attract bugs and spread diseases, so it's important to remove the mess as quickly as possible.
The team at Critter Control of Bloomington can get your crawlspace back to normal quickly. We will repair the insulation, remove any wildlife droppings, and seal the crawlspace so you don't have the issue happen again! Contact us today!
