Water Damage in Crawlspace and Garage in Neskowin, Oregon

Many residential and commercial properties are feeling the effects of persisting rainfall we’ve recently had on the Oregon Coast. Water leaking into a crawlspace or basement after a heavy rainstorm can happen if there is compromised drainage or where there is a build up in the soil and can cause the rise in the water table closer to the surface. Water can intrude through cracks, porous building materials, holes, joints and/or inadequate waterproofing. It’s crucial to track down the source of the water leak to fix that issue so the water damage does not continue. Hiring an experienced professional like Disaster Master for water mitigation is the key to properly restoring your home or commercial property. 

Recently, in Neskowin, Oregon there was a water leak from heavy rainstorms into one of the walls in the garage and the crawlspace. Disaster Master was hired to do the water mitigation and dry out. They began by covering up all the contents to protect the items while the crew is working on the affected wall in the garage. A three foot flood cut was needed to remove the affected drywall. Then drying equipment was set and monitored with a moisture meter daily to ensure everything was completely dry. Next, Disaster Master removed and disposed of all the affected wet insulation in the crawlspace. The existing vapor barrier was removed and a new vapor barrier was installed with red tape on the important seams. The homeowner was very satisfied that her garage and crawlspace were all dry and free of water damage.
