At EUI we want to protect your home from termite and moisture damage. Virginia is situated in an area of the US that is listed as a moderate to heavy chance of termite infestation, which means termites are a real threat to homeowners in the greater Richmond area.

Did you know?

Termites only need 1/64 of an inch gap to gain access to the wood in your home and do more monetary damage in the US than all the fires, wind storms and hurricanes combined. EUI has several environmentally responsible treatment options to meet your needs.

EUI Offers the Sentricon Termite Control System

Our All Seasons Pest Control Program provides for 4 services per year. The spring, summer, and fall applications concentrate on the exterior where 90% of our pest problems originate. The thorough and targeted applications help prevent pests from ever entering and stop pests BEFORE they become established inside.

We will call to schedule an inside visit during the winter service, so we can inspect and make applications in critical areas where pests may enter or infest. Our program is designed to meet your pest needs with a “minimum of intrusion” while maintaining a pest free environment. However, should a pest problem get around the “barriers” established by our perimeter treatments, we will return at no charge until the problem is eliminated. Interior access may be required to address interior sightings. Additional treatments will be performed at no charge if service is paid and maintained at 90 day intervals without delay or interruption.

Is it Mold or Wood Decay Fungi?

Molds are microscopic fungi that live on organic matter and can be confused with wood decay fungi. Although mold organisms may discolor the wood, they do not break down the wood fibers. Mold requires a high degree of moisture in the air – 60% Relative Humidity or more, for a minimum of 72 hours. It’s true that mold doesn’t rot wood, but it can cause serious health issues for some people.
Wood Decay Fungi generally occur when the moisture content of wood exceeds 20 to 30 percent, coupled with optimal temperatures (32 – 90 degrees F), an adequate supply of oxygen and a suitable source of nutrients. It feeds off of cells in the wood and will significantly reduce strength of the wood if conditions continue over a period of time.

When Do I Need To Treat?

In general, if you can smell it or see it, you need to correct it!

Following the Science

Advanced Energy conducted a five year study of moisture levels in code compliant vented crawl spaces. The results were stunning and undistputable.

Properly closed crawl spaces are more energy efficient and substantially dryer than well constructed code compliant vented crawl spaces. (Advanced Energy)

This information not only changed contruction standards for the southeast and mid-Atlantic states, it has at long last solved the issues with mold growth in crawl spaces in our area as well.

Armed with science, the EUI Closed Space System was born!

EUI Closed Crawl Space Liner

All of the components are made in the USA! This is the only system that uses low VOC materials and assures optimal performance for years to come. Any contractor knows that black powder nailers can compromise the integrity of a foundation wall. The Closed Space System does not require harmful nailers, and instead, employs its own innovative, strong and safe application method.
