Storm Flooded Crawlspace in a Small Ft. Myers Condo
Tropical storms and hurricanes too often visit the west coast of Florida. Recent deluges have created havoc as illustrated by this flooded crawlspace in a Ft. Myers condo. SERVPRO technicians set up several small pumps and then vacuumed out the remainder of the standing water. After dehumidifiers had thoroughly dried out the area and removed all waterlogged insulation and other debris, the encapsulation service could be done. The 12 mil thick poly sheeting created a barrier between the soil and the supports and ambient air within the crawlspace. This keeps the humidity lower and also improves the air quality. With less dampness, the odds of mold growth were also greatly reduced. Count on our AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians first to remove the contaminated water and then disinfect the affected areas.
