BRING MOISTURE TO ITS KNEES

kneeling

Moisture is a major threat to your home’s value. In fact, moisture in your basement and crawl space may lead to serious structural damage over time. That’s why we created the Ecoguardian DryZone program – a customized and truly effective program to help control the moisture in your home’s crawl space and basement. Defending your home from the threat of moisture will prolong the longevity of your most valued asset.

The Amount of Damage Can’t Always Be Seen

Fungus can occur when wood moisture levels exceed just 20%, while wood rot can occur when levels exceed 28%. Look for sticking windows, mildew, peeling paint, aggravated allergies, and foul odors – all of which are signs that your home may have moisture problems. Optimum moisture levels vary by geographic region, but generally fall between 10-18%.

With Ecoguardian DryZone, you can reduce the humidity in your home, helping to stop wood decay and to control conditions that are conducive to pest and termite infestations. Additionally, DryZone can provide the following benefits for your home:

  • Extends the life of the structure
  • Helps prevent pipes from freezing
  • Keeps floors warmer in the winter
  • Improves indoor air quality
  • Increases energy efficiency
  • Saves over 15% on annual energy bill
