Crawl spaces serve many functions in a building, but most of us pay too little attention to them. However, damages to this not-so-popular part of your building may affect many aspects of the house. They are critical to electrical wiring, plumbing, foundational walls, and many structural designs of the house. However, you don’t get to see what is happening in your crawl spaces often. Hence, they may experience significant damage without being noticed. Also, their nature makes them susceptible to flooding, excess moisture, and other forms of water damage. That is why it is essential to inspect your crawl spaces regularly. It is even more important that the inspection should be done by a professional at least twice a year.
A-Co Restoration provides crawl space cleaning and inspection services in Meridian, ID. Our professionals can do a thorough inspection of your crawl space to look for any hidden problems that could lead to serious property damage. We can also help clean and restore your crawl space if it has been damaged by water or mold growth.
What to Look for When Inspecting Your Crawl Spaces
The design and structure of crawl spaces are different from those of other parts of the building. Hence, you must be particular about what to watch out for during the inspection. If you request A-Co Restoration to inspect your crawl spaces, these are the primary issues we will be looking for:
Structural Damage: Because you don’t inspect your crawl spaces all the time, you may not notice structural damage. However, the earlier you detect it, the better. Our technicians are experienced, qualified, and certified by the IICRC to inspect residential and commercial buildings. Damage to the walls or foundation may be critical if not corrected as soon as possible.
Leaking Pipes: Crawl spaces house your building’s pipes. If any of them are broken or damaged, it may lead to a catastrophe. Our technicians are trained and equipped with instruments to identify damaged pipes so that they can be replaced immediately.
Excess moisture: If your crawl spaces fail to drain water properly, then they will be prone to flooding and other effects of excess moisture. Unfortunately, if the water level in your crawl spaces is too high, it can have a catastrophic impact on your foundation. At A-Co Restoration, we will identify all cases of excess moisture in your crawl spaces. We will also determine the causes and prevent further damage. Finally, we will dry your structures and rectify any effect of the excess water on your structure.
Mold Growth: We will also search for mold, mildew and pests. Mold grows quickly in crawl spaces and can spread fast without being noticed. However, our technicians can efficiently remove mold from your building and stop its growth.
Restoration of Crawl Spaces
Our crawl space cleaning services do not end in the inspection. We will also restore all damage excess water might have caused to your crawl space. Our services include cleaning mold from your crawl space, drying and extracting excess moisture, and disinfecting the space. If your crawl space has structural damage or there are damaged pipes, we can recommend a professional for the repairs.
