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 Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

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.
