Crawlspace Remediation

Crawlspace Remediation

Fungal growth can be commonly found in the crawlspace thriving on floor joists.  SERVPRO offers mold remediation estimates and services.  Pictured is a completed mold remediation on the floor joist of a home. 

Mold Caused by Rising Water

Rising water has become an issue as of late to  residents.  Water damage left unattended can cause major structural damage including mold to grow and spread throughout your home.

Source of Water Damage

Faulty plumbing supply lines can lead to an abundance of water damages.  Water damage from a sink averaged more than $7,000 per incident. Of these incidents, 44% were attributed to faulty plumbing supply lines.  Be sure to periodically check for water dripping off the lines under sinks or behind toilets to prevent large water losses.

Floor Drying System

SERVPRO uses a unique floor drying system.  Drying mats extract water out of the subfloors by pulling the water to the surface of the wood. The drying system is also quiet and does not use power in excess.  These drying mats are another wonderful tool that SERVPRO can use to save a home from some of the most devastating water damages.

Demolition

Demolition may be necessary in extreme water damage cases.  Pictured is a flood cut performed due to rising water.  SERVPRO performs demolition then cleans and hauls off debris in order to further the drying process.

Water Clean Up

When you have a water loss the last thing you want to have to think about is how long before help can arrive.

Sewage Loss

After a water loss here are some of the things that you can do until help arrives.

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and cushions.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer.
  • Remove colored rugs from wet carpeting.
  • Remove art objects to a safe, dry place.
  • Gather loose items from floors.

Drying Hardwood Floors

After a water loss it is very important that you trust the restoration professionals in properly drying your structure.

After the water removal step, your floors and walls may look dry at first glance, but they are still wet to the touch. Most building materials, like drywall and wood, are porous and will retain significant water. The retained water will cause these materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage.

SERVPRO Franchise Professionals will manipulate temperature and relative humidity to remove the remaining moisture. They use specialized equipment, including industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, to remove water retained by building materials and other hard-to-access moisture. They’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.
