So, if you had a leak in your home, and your home has a cross base underneath, more than likely, water has gathered and pooled up under your house. And this could go overlooked. And a lot of people will call a plumber out to get it fixed. What a lot of people don’t understand is that they need to hire a restoration contractor prior to the plumber being able to go under the house and fix the leak.
The plumber is always going to say, “I need someone to remove this water.” That’s where restoration contractor comes in. We remove the water that’s standing under your house. And that needs to be done regardless.
Standing water under your home gone unattended can attract mosquitoes and other insects and things. It can also create an unpleasant smells into your home and could be a health hazard.
Flooded Understructure & Immediate Action Items
If your home happens to have a crawlspace or an under structure, and you have a leak, this could be very difficult situation to take care of.
What you want to do is make sure that any of the standing water that is underneath your home is removed. And then, you have wet soil left after the water has been removed. You want to make sure that you disinfect that soil and put some Absorball—which we use basically as kitten litter. We put it over the top of the affected soil. That’s going to draw the moisture from the soil to the surface and allow it to evaporate over time.
Once this is done and the plumber can get under there, he’ll make the repair. You’ll be back to normal in no time!
