Water Removal in Your Crawl Space

2/11/2019 (Permalink)

Rely on Professional Services to Remove Water from and Remediate Your Crawl Space

Crawl spaces are low areas building contractors in Cherry Valley may put under the first floor of a home, so there is access to necessary wiring and plumbing. They can also be storage areas under your home if you do not have a basement and the floor is concrete. However, standing water can build up sometimes in the area, causing a multitude of problems. It can be caused by a kitchen waste line leaking, a leaking sewer line, gutter downspouts incorrectly directed, sprinkler water coming through a crawl space’s vents, or a naturally-occurring high groundwater table.

When this happens, you need the professional help of a water removal remediation company. It is not recommended to do the water removal in your Cherry Valley crawl space yourself because proper remediation and water extraction requires particular expertise and equipment to handle the problem thoroughly. SERVPRO's IICRC-certified technicians are specially trained to handle this type of issue, and we can be reached at any time you need us. We move fast to get to your home.

We first need to get the standing water out of your crawl space. To do so, we have industrial strength truck-mounted pumps. The water must be removed before it starts to erode your foundation or create mold growth, and this is the fastest way to do so.

Since concrete is cooler than other kinds of materials, moisture can stay even after the standing water has been removed. The moisture left behind can create mold and mildew growth, so it is essential we dry the crawlspace out quickly, instead of letting it sit and dry on its own. The best way for us to do so is by using dehumidifiers and fans which we carefully place in your crawlspace to dry it out most efficiently.

The equipment is checked by SERVPRO staff daily and rearranged for optimal drying as needed. Once everything is completely dry, we sanitize the affected area as well.

SERVPRO of South Worcester can take care of your water removal problem in your crawl space in a short amount of time. Anyone in the areas of Cherry Valley, Worcester, and South Worcester should call us as soon as you recognize an issue by dialing (508) 757-7885.
