Heavy Storm Leads to Mold in Crawlspace
Location: Jacksonville, Florida 32081
Problem: Heavy storms in the area had saturated the ground and rain water runoff. Due to this, the water had no where else to go but under our clients home. Due to the saturation of the ground, water was left in the form of puddles under the home for weeks. Moisture in a crawlspace is never a good thing, and as can be expected, mold began to grow on the sub-floor and the supporting beams.
Solution: AdvantaClean responded immediately after receiving the call. Our team started out by pumping out the excess water, and then added a 16 MIL simple vapor barrier. This was followed by cleaning and treating all the wood surfaces under the home in order to prevent future mold growth. AdvantaClean of Orange Park left our customer happy and mold free!
