Proper Mitigation Of Flood Damage Includes Crawlspaces In Shreveport Houses

When a flood occurs in your Shreveport neighborhood, protecting your valuable furniture and other household contents by placing them upstairs can keep them from becoming ruined. SERVPRO is always here to help mitigate the damage to your home's interior and make everything safe again for your family.

Our mitigation services in Shreveport include taking care of the flood damage that happens below your home, in the crawlspaces that you might never consider as crucial to the rest of your house. This area's condition plays a vital role in the air quality of your house's interior, making it crucial that we also mitigate anything wrong.

Your home's crawlspaces allow flooding to make this location a severe mess, full of mud, debris, and water. When the sump pump becomes clogged with solid materials, pumping water out becomes impossible. We can use our large pump, mounted on one of our Green Fleet's trucks, to rid the area below your home of this murky water. Our mitigation team is ready with manual tools to remove the debris so we can get this area clean again and free of excess moisture that can harm the living area of your property.

Even if the floor of the crawlspace is hard earth, we clean down to the base, as well as to the walls. Exposing the brick or concrete means we can thoroughly dry it and reduce the chances of future problems. Getting a sump pump re-established helps keep the area dry as we complete work on the rest of your home. We continue to monitor the area for additional problems, as water from the flood can saturate the ground around homes and slowly seep in through cracks or other weakened areas in the foundation of a property.

Although crawlspaces make up a small percentage of a residence, the amount of water that such areas can contain can pose severe detrimental effects on the rest of the house above. Call SERVPRO of South Shreveport to protect your Forbing area home from flood damage, especially when your crawlspace area also sustained damage. Our 24-hour services line, (318) 865-4655, is always available to you.
