Moisture Control for your Home
For Missouri Homes
You Can't Have a Healthy House With a Sick Crawlspace
Many homes have full or partial crawlspaces that are havens for fungus, pests and termites. Just a few feet below an immaculate living room, a crawlspace may be an overly moist, under ventilated area that reduces the effectiveness of your heating and cooling systems and offers a prime living space for pests.
While it is natural that most homeowners are reluctant to venture into these small, dark places, DeProw personnel are trained to conduct thorough home inspections. That's especially true in these understructures. We have the training and equipment to conduct a complete inspection for mildew, fungus, collected moisture and whatever is sickening your home.

The Value of Moisture Control
Did you know half of the air you breathe inside your home comes from the crawl space or basement? Your vented dirt crawl space is affecting your health and comfort and costing you money more than you know. The air inside the crawl space is musty and full of mold spores, mildew, dust mites, and bacteria. Moisture in the crawl space also causes mold growth and dry rot, which damages the structure of your home.
