Keep pests out of your crawl space.
Your crawl space can serve as natural breeding grounds for bugs and other pests. They love to live in dark, damp spaces. Common bugs in these environments include roly-polies, millipedes, centipedes, cockroaches, ants, and silverfish, and these bugs serve as excellent food sources for rodents and snakes. The bottom line is critters in your foundation are bad, and they shouldn't be there.
Besides the fact that bugs in your crawl space is an unwanted problem in general, it could be a clear sign that you have moisture issues in your crawl space. A completely dry crawl space is less desirable than a damp crawl space for most of these bugs, and without the little bugs, the bigger critters can’t survive.
Unfortunately, the problem doesn’t just stop there. If you notice an increasing number of bugs in your crawl space, chances are they may work their way into your house as well. If you start to notice a lot of unwanted visitors, it may be time to assess the moisture levels and relative humidity in your crawl space. Let the experts at NSquare, Inc. keep your house bug-free.

The best way to get rid of bugs in your crawlspace is to first solve your moisture issue.
We offer the following services to dry up your crawl space and keep unwanted critters out:
Sump Pump Systems:
Prevent water from entering your crawl space in the first place with a sump pump. These work to pump out any water from your basement and keep it dry.
Crawl Space Encapsulation:
By encapsulating your crawl space, you seal out all of the dirt and excess moisture to give your crawl space a clean and finished look. Not the ideal place for bugs and pests to live.
Foundation Crack Repairs:
Prevent water from entering your crawl space by fixing any cracks in your foundation, leaving your crawl space dry and non-hospitable to bugs. Cracks also serve as an often-surefire symptom of foundation failure, and these issues can escalate quickly. So, if you see cracks in your foundation walls, be it vertical, stair-step or horizontal, call NSquare immediately.
With excess rainfall, make sure you are channeling the water appropriately away from your home’s foundation with a proper drain system.
Once your basement or crawl space has been waterproofed and encapsulated, keep your humidity regulated and your air quality filtered and healthy with one of its patented air filtration and dehumidification systems.
All of these services help create a dry environment with no moisture on the ground or in the air. Once dry, bugs will no longer find a desirable, or a survivable place to live and will stay away.
