Have you checked your Crawlspace?

8/9/2023 (Permalink)

Hello homeowners!

Before working in this industry there were things that I would have never known to look for while owning a home. The biggest one for me was checking your crawlspace periodically. For most people it is out of site out of mind. Water damages occur more commonly than you think inside of your crawlspace. Broken pipes can happen over a long period of time or break suddenly causing major damages. You could have pooling water on your vapor barrier, wet insulation, and a belly bang full of water. If you happen to have wet insulation, the longer that it sits there like a wet sponge you could potentially be causing damages to the flooring of you home. It is important that you know where the access is for your crawlspace so that you can peak in there with a flashlight. If your water bill is higher than normal, that is a good indicator that you may also want to check in there.

So, if you do check in there and you do see water, the first step would be is to call a plumber so that they can stop the leak. Then you will want to call  SERVPRO of Clallam and Jefferson Co at 360-683-0773 so that we can come out and assess the damage and work on stopping any further damages from occurring in your home.
