Moisture is a common concern for this area of your Lafayette property, and without efficient removal, can lead to a need for mold removal in the crawlspace and beyond. While your crawlspace has gotten partially designed to keep your home out of the line of fire of even moderate flooding throughout the region, dampness and moisture are common elements in these spaces that require removal and effective continued solutions to prevent conditions that can allow for the growth of mold. Our SERVPRO® professionals can help.

We can also offer lasting strategies like crawlspace encapsulation that can help to keep this area of your home free from moisture and dampness, effectively preventing recurrences of mold growth for the future.
