Flooding in the crawlspace can quickly affect your home in a negative way. Contact our SERVPRO team for services.

Water Removal and Drying of Flooded Montgomery Crawlspace

The crawlspace of your Montgomery home serves a vital role in helping technicians and the homeowner access utilities and other areas of the property otherwise buried and difficult to reach. This area also works to protect your home against persistent threats like flooding. Effects from a disaster like this can spread quickly throughout the first level of your house without this added 24 to 36 inches of space between the ground and the flooring of your main level. When flooding does occur, removing the water and drying out the area quickly is important to protect your property against several threats.

The first and foremost threat with flood damage in the crawlspace of your Montgomery home is the structural effects that result from prolonged moisture and dampness throughout this area of your property. With saturation and dampened materials, supports for your flooring, framework, and beams can all become weakened from the prolonged exposure to excessive moisture and wicking common flood damages in the crawlspace.

Another concern that homeowners should have that could inspire them to reach out to our SERVPRO professionals as soon as this disaster occurs is the threat of mold growth. While these effects might start at a precise point, this organism can spread quickly through the floor of your house and damage structural integrity and pose potential health effects for those exposed to the spreading colony.

From the time that our SERVPRO team arrives at your home, we can get to work quickly on extracting the water from this exposed area of your property and working to dry out the area as well. Often portable sump pumps are sufficient for this extraction. If persistent moisture is a common problem beyond the immediate flood damage, we can also offer crawlspace encapsulation to keep this area protected from moisture and potential mold growth moving forward.

Even with the crawlspace serving such a vital role for your home, many homeowners still do not get it the immediate flood damage restoration it needs when disaster strikes. You can trust our SERVPRO of Montgomery rapid response team to offer effective solutions to return this portion of your property to preloss conditions. Give us a call 24/7 at (334) 273-0992.
