Crawlspace Clean Up

A Name You Can Trust

Bill Howe is a household name in San Diego. From plumbing to heating and air conditioning, to flood restoration, Bill Howe provides the best home services in the San Diego area. When it comes to jobs like installing a new air conditioning unit or renovating your kitchen, you can have confidence calling Bill Howe because you know they have been providing excellent service in these fields since 1980. In the event of a flood, for example, there is no one better to call to get the mess cleaned up promptly so you can return to a sense of normalcy quickly. In the tragic event that your home has experienced a flood, our team can help with flooring, sewage clean up, framing rework, or crawl space restoration.

Crawl space Clean Up: Getting The Water Out

If you are unfortunate enough to have suffered flooding in your home, chances are your basement or crawlspace will be the primary area affected. Our team of experienced water damage technicians know exactly what to do to safely and effectively mitigate the water’s effects. They begin by extracting and/or pumping out any standing water or sewage that remains in the flooded crawlspace. Using state-of-the-art equipment, our technicians extract as much liquid water as possible during the cleaning process. We usually complete the water removal with Absorbal, which ensures that all the moisture has been removed from the crawlspace.

Mitigating Damage

The most essential aspect of a post-flood water damage restoration for many homeowners is minimizing the amount of long-term structural damage that is inflicted on the home. Once all the standing water in a flooded crawl space has been removed, our technicians swiftly begin the structural and soil drying part of the process. Bill Howe’s first priority is always to salvage any property that is not completely destroyed. But just because we work swiftly, does not mean that we cut corners.

Many homeowners have been through the nightmare of paying for flood damage cleanup, only to discover extensive secondary damage, such as mold or mildew, just weeks later. Our teams work tirelessly to ensure that no secondary damage occurs to any salvageable property. Throughout the process, we can work directly with both you, the homeowner, and your insurance company. This way, communication about coverage and available options is swift and smooth, and you have the stress of communicating with insurance companies off your shoulders.

Restoring the Crawlspace

After all the water has been extracted and the crawl space has been entirely dried out, we can begin to restore the space to its original condition. If large amounts of soil have been lost from the crawlspace, we replace soil. Then, we use soda blasting to completely clean any structural elements that were affected in the flood. Finally, we use preventative measures for mold, mildew, and odor. We use ozone and odor control techniques in the crawlspace, followed by a biowash which removes and prevents the growth of mold and mildew. These final steps ensure that your crawlspace not only appears to be back to normal when we leave the site, but that it stays that way as well.

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
