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.
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.
