If a water pipe fails in your home this could lead to water damage that could compromise the structure of your home. Mold can grow within 24-48 hours after a water damage occurs. Sometimes water damage happens in hard to see places such as the attics or crawlspaces. This is why it’s important for homeowners to have these areas inspected by a professional like Disaster Master to help prevent and mitigate the water damage.
Recently, in Lincoln City, Oregon there was a home that had a failed copper pipe leak into the crawlspace on a holiday weekend. The homeowner called Disaster Master right away to mitigate the water damage. Disaster Master removed all the plastic and twine holding up the insulation in the crawlspace because it was saturated with water. Next, all debris and vapor barrier were removed. Drying equipment such as 2 dehumidifiers and 4 air movers were installed in the crawlspace to help dry out the structure. Lastly, new 6 ML black vapor barrier was installed with red tape on the important seams and a spray of antimicrobial on all affected areas to help clean and sanitize. The home owners were very satisfied with the work that Disaster Master did.
