Encapsulation Mitigates Storm Damage in Pittsboro
SERVPRO recommends to Pittsboro local homeowners of crawlspace structures to prepare for storm flooding. The Before Photo shows a crawlspace that has been encapsulated with six mil sheeting and attached to the concrete foundation. This offers a dryer environment with less moisture migrating from the soil to the interior of the home. During floodings by groundwater intrusion, the saturation of the ground is less, the cleanup is quicker, and this also helps to control better indoor air quality. Mold infestations are also easier to control with dampness levels lower in this enclosed area. SERVPRO can offer not only after-the-fact storm relief, but we can help to prevent problems.
