Preventative Moisture Control

Stop humidity-related problems before they develop with moisture control from our Strand Termite & Pest Control Company in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina and Sea Mountain Highway Little River, South Carolina. Using state-of-the-art equipment, we successfully eliminate excess water from your indoors.

Drier Is Better

Our goal is to reduce and maintain the relative humidity in your crawl space to below 65%. For the wood in your property, we try to lower the moisture content to below 15%. Lower humidity prevents mold growth, fungus, and wood decay.
