Crawlspaces are the area under the house that provides a buffer between the house and the damp earth below. This is the area where duct work and utility cables can be found. If you have ever noticed water in your crawlspace it could be from a plumbing leak, ground water, or condensation. It’s not good to have standing water on the vapor barrier of the crawlspace because it can lead to elevated moisture and cause microbial growth. As much as 50% of the air in the home comes from below in the crawlspace so it’s important to have a dry and clean crawlspace for your homes air quality. It’s crucial to call a professional water restoration company like Disaster Master to mitigate the water damage.
Recently in Lincoln City, Oregon there was crawlspace that had water damage from a broken downspout. The homeowner noticed the water in their crawlspace and called Disaster Master right away to mitigate the water damage. Disaster Master got straight to work by installing floor protection from the front door of the home to crawlspace access in the bedroom. This helped protect the flooring in the home from getting dirty. One HEPA Air Scrubber was set during the remediation process to help clean and scrub the air. The technicians all wore full hazmat gear. They removed all debris and existing vapor barrier from the crawlspace. Next, the crawlspace was throughly cleaned up and sanitized with antimicrobial. Lastly, new black vapor barrier was installed with red tape on the important seams. The homeowner was very satisfied with the work that Disaster Master did because it gave him peace of mind that his crawlspace was free of water damage.
