Why you need a water damage restoration company
Crawl spaces are often dark, musty, unpleasant places. We get it: they’re gross. We don’t mind getting into the inner workings of your home or business, cleaning things up and making the building breathe, cycle air and expel excess moisture as it was designed to do.
The crawl spaces in your home’s attic, basement and structural cavities provide access to mechanical, electrical and plumbing equipment and fixtures. If not properly constructed and maintained, they also provide opportunities for wasted heating and cooling energy, insect or rodent infestation and hazardous mold growth.
Pests, and trapped water can damage vapor barriers, resulting in still worse damage like mold and rotten structural materials. And poorly insulated crawl spaces can spill expensive heat into the winter night.
If you notice odd changes in indoor temperatures in your home or business, strange drafts, visible signs of moisture or animal infestation, or spikes in heating or cooling bills, call Abbotts for a free inspection.
Choosing a Denver Water Damage Restoration Company
Crawlspace restoration is a dirty job. Building ventilation systems usually run through crawl spaces, so leaky ductwork, coupled with pest or mold infestation can result in air contaminated with rodent droppings, decaying food cached by pests and mold spores. This isn't a job you want to do without the proper protective equipment!
Find a Qualified Water Damage Restoration Company
For dirty jobs like crawlspace cleanup it is important to focus on quality rather than price. A professional restoration company will do the best work, saving you from having to spend additional money on expensive repairs down the road. Professionals will also offer free inspections and ensure that vapor barriers are correctly installed.
What are vapor barriers?
Vapor barriers are just what their name suggests: a barrier to keep moisture from entering your home’s crawl spaces. They keep water from diffusing through walls, floors and ceilings, protecting your property from potential damage and mold infestations.
In addition to protecting your home from potentially damaging moisture, vapor barriers assist in maintaining desired indoor climates by reducing the humidity inside.
Crawlspace cleanup and restoration is a dirty job. Professionals have the equipment to do this job safely!
A water damage cleanup company that offers a wide range of water restoration services is going to be preferable compared to a company that offers fewer services. This is the easiest way to determine general expertise. A company with many options is more likely to have had training in all of the different options.
Look for a water cleanup services company who is highly regarded and has a solid reputation. While word of mouth is still one of the best indicators, online reviews are great option to locate quality water damage cleanup and restoration professionals. A quick check with the Better Business Bureau is always a good idea, too.
