When Your Crawlspace In Dallas Experiences Water Damage, Our Crew Is Here To Help!
Water Removal For The Crawlspace Of Your Dallas Home
While many Dallas homes offer the simplest of foundations in the form of a concrete slab, other properties have elevated main floors. These construction decisions leave space beneath the floor for access to utilities, shutoffs, and to protect your home in the event of situations like flooding. As beneficial as crawlspaces can be, these areas of your property can become susceptible to pooling groundwater and natural persistent dampness that can cause problems for both this portion of your home and the main floor above it.
While there are many detrimental effects that pooling water or persistent dampness can have, restoring these damages involve prompt water removal services for your Dallas home from certified technicians like ours. The SERVPRO team that we send out to your property arrives with the full measure of our extraction and drying equipment, helping to protect structural elements of your home against saturation that can weaken these materials or secondary effects like hazardous mold growth.
Removing the excess water from your crawlspace is the first step, and often must occur even before our team can accurately inspect the home entirely for the full scope of the damages that have occurred. We arrive with varying levels of extraction equipment, but depending on the severity of the situation, portable sump pumps and extraction wands are often sufficient for removing the water and allowing drying efforts and a full assessment to begin.
The SERVPRO technicians can also offer effective services like crawlspace encapsulation once water removal has completed. This protection covers all of the crawlspace area and structural supports and flooring material above in a thick plastic sheeting. If moisture and pooling water are going to continue to affect your property, we can even install water diversion equipment like sump pumps to keep this newly protected area dry moving forward.
While you might not consider the risks of allowing your crawlspace to stay moist, damp, or affected by pooling water, it could have dire effects on your home and its occupants. Let our SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County help you restore these effects quickly by calling (972) 227-0800.
