Mold Found During a Routine Inspection
SERVPRO of Bend was called out to a customer after they were worried about ground water seeping into their crawlspace.
The homeowner noticed water settling beneath their vapor barrier. The vapor barrier looked to them to be full of air and when they poked it, water came seeping through.
SERVPRO of Bend certified WRT technicians put on their personal protective equipment and went into the crawlspace to investigate. They found that the sump pump had malfunctioned, causing the water to collect beneath the house.
Technicians inspected other areas of the crawlspace an found that just above the are where the standing water was, mold was starting to grow. After fixing the sump pump, SERVPRO of Bend was able to safely remove the mold from the crawlspace area.
