Damage and Decay
Moisture is a real problem in any home and may cause mold and thousands of dollars in damages before you notice what is happening. Excessive moisture under and around your home destroys the supports that secure it, causing the foundation to become unstable. Soft or rotten wood attracts termites, along with a variety of other pests. Too much moisture also dilutes your chemical barrier after a termite treatment, allowing bugs to have access to the structure.
The foundation of your home is very important and allowing areas to sag or weaken puts stress on other parts of the structure. This causes a chain reaction that could be costly and could even cause damage to sheetrock or other parts of your home.
