Trained Technicians Remediate Water Damage in Your Home and Offer Options to Prevent a Recurrence

Water damage to your Nashville home can be devastating enough, especially when you start to realize that the problem rests with a combination of the construction of your foundation walls and water that can penetrate this weakened wall through your crawl space. Fortunately, some solutions can help you to prevent further damage in the future.

Crawl space repair for your Nashville home is a typical response to the presence of water from walls adjacent to this area of your property. This service is one that more and more homes in the region need as they age, even when the initial construction was sound. If you have been noticing water in the lower levels of your home penetrating from this exterior area, SERVPRO has the solution to restore not only the water damage to your home but prevent future damages as well.

Our process is two-fold, offering first the repairs that these block walls need to prevent further penetration of water when conditions are less than favorable outside. Typically this gets accomplished through a thorough visual inspection to locate problem areas. These are cracks, holes or worn out mortar joints are parged over with hydraulic cement.

The second part of this process is encapsulation. Through using thick plastic sheeting, we can completely enclose the crawl space area after the initial repairs have gotten completed. The process ultimately prevents water from accessing the crawl space at all and also prevents water from affecting the mortar joints or repairs made to the shared wall with the basement or lower level.

Lingering water damage from the initial penetration also gets remedied while our SERVPRO team is on site. Depending on the severity of the issue, we have lots of available equipment at our disposal for water extraction and drying efforts. We even utilize infrared technology to inspect inside of walls for the presence of water that cannot get seen with the naked eye. The thorough inspection ensures that we have completed restoration, but also offers you peace of mind as well.

If you have noticed that your crawl space could use some repairs and waterproofing, do not hesitate to contact SERVPRO of South Nashville. You can reach our experienced and professional technicians anytime at (615) 331-0200.
