San Jose crawl space clean up.
We were called by a resident who had a terrible smell in her house and could not determine where it came from. Our Project Manager and his Technicians, began the task of finding out where the smell was coming from.They started within the house and went from room to room, but the smell was fairly consistent all throughout the inside of the home. After further investigation, it was determined that there was contaminated standing water under the home, in the crawl space. The source being a leak from a drain line in the homes bathroom.
The dig out begins!! The technicians dig out as much contaminated soil as possible, again having to take it from under the home, through the closet and outside of the home. After this is completed, technician’s set-up the appropriate drying equipment under the home to dry out the remaining soil and wood foundation and framework. This is done following all IICRC guidelines as directed in the Drying of a Confined Space. As the drying process is occurring, we go in regularly to check that there is no moisture in the crawl space, using sophisticated moisture reading equipment.
