Crawl Space Makeover in Port Monmouth

Crawl Space Makeover in Port Monmouth

Before After
Crawl Space Makeover in Port Monmouth Crawl Space Makeover in Port Monmouth

A Port Monmouth homeowner contacted Crawl Space Solutions By Cowleys to resolve his crawl space problems. The homeowner decided that it was time to invest in his home by repairing an unsightly area of crawl space that was visible from the basement. Also, the homeowner was concerned, and rightly so, that his open crawl space was allowing excess moisture seeping out from the soil into his home. The moisture source was increasing the indoor humidity (you could feel the wet air when standing near the crawl space) and the likelihood of dangerous mold growth. 

These pictures show the “before and after” of our crawlspace project. We covered the area with our CleanSpace liner. This extra thick polyethylene lining material serves as a highly effective vapor barrier to sellout soil moisture. We mechanically fasten this liner  to the walls, so if someone needs to crawl into your crawl space, you don’t have to worry that it will pull off or tear should someone walk across it. These barriers are made with an antimicrobial additive and UV inhibitors and stabilizers, so they will not erode and break down prematurely.  

We were especially concerned about the aesthetics of this particular job since our work would be visible from the basement. We worked extra hard to make the job look as nice as possible. While our “extreme makeover” crawl space would not be an exhibit at a fancy museum or art gallery, we are darn proud of how well it looked after we were done, and the homeowner could not have been more pleased.

Job Stories From Port Monmouth, NJ
Dirty rags attracts fruit flies in Port Monmouth restaurant

A restaurant in Port Monmouth found itself with a fruit fly infestation in its kitchen. These tiny, rapidly reproducing little pests, which are easily identified by their distinctive bright red eyes, are so-named because of their attraction to fermenting fruits and vegetables. Perishable food start to smell when bacteria and fungi that are decomposing the food release certain chemicals. While people may be repulsed by the smell of spoiled foods, for fruit flies, these odors are an attractant. And it’s not just the smell of overripe fruits that will lure fruit flies. They are attracted to any fermenting liquids no matter where it’s coming from. So, you’ll find these little gnats hovering over drains, garbage cans, garbage disposals, mops, grease traps, and in this commercial kitchen, dirty rags thrown in a bin inside a heated closet. The heat made the problem worse by accelerating the fermentation process. A pungent rotten odor that had permeated the closet had gone unnoticed to the restaurant staff. Unfortunately, we can become acclimated to certain odors over time and don’t even notice them.

Usually, insect and rodent infestations in restaurants can be traced back to some hygiene or sanitation issue, and fruit flies are no exception. Fruit flies will congregate around kitchen items or appliances that are not regularly cleaned and contain organic residue. We often find that pest infestations occur when proper cleaning protocols are not followed.

In sensitive areas such as commercial kitchens where food is being prepared, we strive to minimize the use of pesticides and instead employ EPA-recommended Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques that use less invasive environmental solutions. Here, the solution was simple. We resolved the infestation by removing the dirty rags and then thoroughly cleaning out the bin and the inside of the closet. Going forward, cleaning rags will be regularly washed and the staff will keep out only clean rags in a bucket of sanitized water. Restaurants and other commercial facilities that work with the pest control service by instituting and implementing appropriate procedures is the most effective long-term solution for avoiding infestations and minimizing their severity if they do occur.

Golden Eye Ln in Port Monmouth
We live behind the dunes and beach. Bugs are rampant and we keep getting them in the house. We moved here a few months ago and want the rear area sprayed- there are ant hills everywhere, also mosquitos like crazy and earlier in the season ticks. I'm also interested in a service to fill any holes where they may be getting into the house from the exterior. We want a comprehensive treatment plan.
