    This customer was having issues with bugs coming into their house that seemed to be coming up from the crawl space through cracks in the floors. He said that they had recently moved to this area and had only been in this home for about 1 year. The customer said that it looks like there was an encapsulation installation attempt years ago, but they only got about ½ way done. It is not quite what it should be to be effective. Their crawl space needed to have some attention, or an upgrade to get them the protection that they were looking for, for their home. The customer said that they have ants coming in every nook and cranny from the floors. Part of their home is on a slab, part of it is a split level, and part of it is on a pier and beam. They were using a dehumidifier inside the home, in the area that the split level was located. In their previous home back east, they had an encapsulation in their crawl space. They knew and understood the benefits that it provided for their home and was interested in getting a quote for an encapsulation for this new home.
