Ventilation and Moisture Barriers
Problems with Moisture
To prevent problems, moisture levels in your crawl space should be kept at less than 20%, with humidity levels between 54-64%.
Moisture creates a breeding ground for pests like the American Cockroach, not to mention harmful mold and mildew that can lead to wood rot and structural damage.
Western’s moisture-control solutions help you fight back. Combining proven moisture-repelling technology that ensures proper circulation, we help you keep dangerous conditions from emerging while identifying any existing damage.
And now – with Western’s Vaporshield™ – you can choose a total encapsulation program that provides unprecedented crawlspace protection.
