Moisture Control Solutions From The Original Bugman

The Original Bugman offers numerous moisture control solutions customized to handle any situation. Our moisture control services include:

Ventilation Systems

The crawl space of your Columbia, SC area home is one of the most vulnerable areas for moisture problems to develop, and water damage in the crawl space can lead to numerous harmful complications over time. Ventilation systems help regulate moisture levels within the crawl space using a mix of fans, vapor barriers, and ventilation improvements.


Original Bugman uses the Temp-Vent® system to protect crawl spaces in homes across the Midlands area of South Carolina. Temp-Vent minimizes moisture build-up over time, preventing rot, water damage, mold, mildew, fungi, and other hazards from developing inside your home’s foundation.

Temp-Vent® is a powered vent system works by encasing the vents in your crawl space with small fans that create negative pressure so that air is drawn in through the foundation, helping dry it in the process. Powered vents are installed on one side of the foundation with open, non-powered vents on the opposite side. Temp-Vent® boasts quick and effective moisture control, and it has become one of the most trusted names in moisture control across the nation.


Certain areas of your home naturally attract moisture problems. In these moisture-rich areas, The Original Bugman deploys home dehumidifiers that can dry up these areas, minimizing your risk for mold, mildew, and pest problems to develop and saving on overall energy consumption. 

Vapor Barriers

Vapor barriers are a type of damp proofing that resists moisture from diffusing through the wall, floor, crawl space, and other vulnerable areas of your home. Original Bugman uses 6 mil (.006-inch thick) polyethylene sheeting material to protect your home’s most vulnerable areas from moisture build-up and diffusion.

Drain Systems

Over time, ground and surfaces in and around your home can become oversaturated, filling low points until water pressure builds up enough to create cracks and holes. We use drain systems to regulate moisture levels inside vulnerable areas of your home by automatically pumping out moisture as it collects in these areas. These types of systems are especially helpful for homes that have experienced groundwater flooding. 

Fungus & Mold Treatments

Fungus and mold develop over time in moisture-damaged wood, creating numerous health hazards and property damage in the process. The Original Bugman provides mold and fungal treatments that can give you better long-term air quality by not only killing active mold and fungi within your home but also creating a persistent barrier that will help prevent these problems from developing in the future.

Insulation Removal & Replacement

Insulation is an essential to keep dry air in and water out. Like any other part of your house, your insulation will degrade over time as it is exposed to the elements, eventually creating holes where moisture and other harmful elements could get inside. The Original Bugman can remove damaged or worn insulation around your home and replace it so that your defenses are never down when it comes to moisture infiltration.
