Storm Damage In Crawlspace
Flooding under a home created a mess in this crawlspace.
Keeping a crawlspace is always a challenge in during heavy rains. Ground water tends to get in at the worst times. The flood water brings in dirt and other contamination.
It's just a crawl space!
We hear the above phrase all the time. Here is the problem with just letting it dry out on its own.
- Bacterial growth - Flood water brings in bacteria. The slow drying will allow bacteria to grow.
- Mold growth - The same applies here. Mold will grow because of how humid the crawlspace is.
Cleaning a crawlspace is not too hard and will keep your home from odors and the possibility of mold.
