Let Our SERVPRO Experts in Coral Springs Take Care of Little Problems Before They Become Big Ones 

Even a small amount of water in the crawlspace under your Coral Springs home can lead to big problems. Any moisture that is allowed to remain can cause damage. It is only a matter of time before something happens. Why not head off problems by letting our mitigation team take care of it now?

What causes water to accumulate in a crawlspace?

There are different reasons water damage can happen in your Coral Springs residence. Seeing water in your crawlspace, even a small amount, can mean hidden problems. Some of these can include: 

  • Poor drainage
  • High water table
  • Heavy rainfall
  • Cracked walls 
  • Leaking pipes 

Small Problems Can Lead to Big Ones 

Because your crawlspace sits on top of your foundation, any standing water is an issue. What may seem minor on inspection can lead to foundation issues that can make the home inhabitable. Here are some things you do not want to deal with: 

  • Over time crawlspace moisture can cause water damage to your supporting beams and the concrete foundation.
  • Pests of all sorts love warm, damp locations.
  • It can lead to mold growth.
  • A hidden pipe link can lead to a burst pipe, causing more extensive damage. 

By calling in SERVPRO emergency mitigation experts, you can prevent these small issues from doing severe water damage. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) technicians get trained to look for even the slightest water loss. We move swiftly to remove the water flow and moisture. Our techs track the moisture to its source and take steps to resolve the problem where it begins.
