Moisture Barrier Protection
During periods of heavy rain, ground water is replenished, causing underground streams and springs to flow again. (Many underground water sources dried up during the recent draught.)
One particular client owns and manages a commercial property in which a small channel of water flows through the crawlspace. Engineers determined that the flow of moisture does not pose a treat to the foundation or structure. Our company was hired to install a moisture barrier in the crawlspace. A plastic barrier was installed above the ground surface, which prevents humidity and odor from the ground water in the damp soil from affecting the crawlspace.
During heavy rains the water flows through the crawlspace at an increased rate, but the plastic barrier keeps the moisture contained.
SERVPRO of Stockton provides moisture barrier installation to protect residential, commercial and industrial properties. We also perform HVAC cleaning and other environmental cleaning to protect indoor air quality.
