We Can Restore Your Jacksonville Home After A Flood

Let our SERVPRO of Arlington use our effective extraction and drying equipment to make flood damage “Like it never even happened.”

Extraction Services For Your Flooded Jacksonville Crawlspace

While the crawlspace of your Jacksonville home serves a vital purpose in providing effective flooding protection and access to utility shutoffs, damage from severe weather systems can often get overlooked. Without regularly assessing this space in your home for effects that could threaten your property, you could remain unaware of flooding effects from severe weather threats recently affecting the area. Persistent standing water in your crawlspace can pose significant concerns for the first floor of your home as well as other exposed structural elements.

While our professionals can respond quickly to flood damage that can affect your Jacksonville property, we cannot predict when your crawlspace has become affected. Regular inspections of this space beneath your main floor can help to identify potential threats and give you the opportunity to notify our SERVPRO rapid response team to help before the situation gets out of control. Standing water and excessive moisture throughout this area can pose risks to structural elements and flooring of your house.

When our crew arrives at your property, we bring along a vast inventory of extraction equipment including wet-vacs with extraction wands and submersible pumps. By removing the standing water quickly from the crawlspace, we can get a better look at the spread of moisture damage and saturation on structural supports, beams, flooring above and other elements. We can set up air movers and dehumidifiers to begin reducing the moisture content quickly.

A significant threat is mold growth and structural weakness with saturated materials throughout your crawlspace. We can assess structural integrity once the area gets dried with our efficient equipment. Exposed elements can get sprayed with antimicrobial solutions to prevent mold growth if the organism has not already started to grow and spread, requiring our mold remediation strategies.

For persistent threats to your crawlspace, our professionals might consider crawlspace encapsulation as an effective solution to reduce moisture and pooling. This approach covers all exposed structural elements in thick plastic sheeting and often requires the installation of permanent water diversion equipment like sump pumps.

While your crawlspace serves a vital purpose in your home, flooding in the area can cause problems for the entire property. Let our SERVPRO of Arlington use our effective extraction and drying equipment to make flood damage “Like it never even happened.” Give our crew a call today at (904) 721-2230.
