Our Rapid Response To This Ft. Worth Residence Limited Crawlspace Water Damages
The crawlspace of your Ft. Worth home can often be a significant source of water damages. While you always have ways of improving the functionality of your residence, many homeowners tend to chock the crawlspaces in their home up to a "lost cause" that they merely have to allow to persist. Fortunately, this is not the case. You have options when it comes to waterproofing this area of your property, which means that you have options regarding protecting your home against the kind of water damage that a compromised crawlspace can allow.
As you can see in the video here, our team came to a house that was already experiencing a severe water incident throughout this area. Our dedication to responding quickly allowed our team to be able to limit the exposure of adjacent areas of the house to pooling water and structural compromising. Our certified SERVPRO technicians get uniquely trained to handle all facets of water damage that we encounter from site to site, and this incident required immediate attention and our professional expertise.
Crawlspace encapsulation is one of the effective strategies that our SERVPRO team implements when we encounter damage on a scale like this. The process itself can eliminate water reaching this area of your property, and therefore, eliminate it working its way into your basement and other lower level spaces in your house.
The encapsulation begins with sealing up weak points with hydraulic cement and removing any moisture or present water from the work area. As you can see in the video, this house became exposed to a great deal of water damage. Our team then focuses on covering all exposed area of walls, the ground, and the flooring serving as a ceiling of the crawlspace with durable 12 mm plastic sheeting. This coating prevents water from penetrating, and all water on the outsides of this plastic get diverted to a sump pump installed at the lowest point of the crawlspace area.
For as common as encapsulation is becoming, many homeowners still get surprised to hear about it. For more information about how SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth can help you to eliminate the threat of water in your crawlspace area, give us a call today at (817) 741-5737.
