Crawl Space Drying >> Storm Damage

If you own a mobile home in an area that has extreme thunderstorms with high winds you know the likelihood of the skirting around your home coming loose and blowing off. This will of course leave your crawlspace open to the elements and being vulnerable to Storm Damage. There are many people that face this kind of damage every year in Florida and other parts of the country where they have hurricanes with heavy winds and extreme amounts of rain.

  1. Every hurricane season thousands of homes are affected, sometimes windows are broken and the rain comes in soaking everything in that room and running through the floor causing Storm Damage. When this water damage occurs the things that usually are affected are the installation that is in the floor. If insulation gets wet it is usually destroyed it will need to be replaced. In your crawlspace this job can be very difficult, there's not a whole lot of room to work. Taking out the old insulation is a dirty nasty Storm Damage job, you wouldn't think that years of dust would collect in the insulation but it does.
  2. In order to pull out the old insulation usually you must be right underneath of it in the dust in the insulation fibers will fall down into your eyes if you're not wearing any protection. The old insulation that was made of fiberglass and was very itchy, the little fiberglass particles become airborne and if it lands on or in your clothes it's a scratching Storm Damage nightmare. When pulling out the insulation you have to be careful, sometimes the insulation might be attached to things like plumbing or electrical wires.
  3. Once all of the old insulation has been removed, the new insulation must be cut and fitted into place to give you the maximum insulating benefit. Another concern, is the supports that are holding up your home, you must evaluate how these supports were installed to begin with. Are the supports on any kind of foundation or slab of concrete or are they merely set upon the ground. Sometimes the crew that initially sets up your house will place some sort of movable pad under the supports. If the supports do not have any kind of slab or bracing underneath of them, what is the condition of the soil, has the Storm Damage washed the dirt away? This would basically mean that there is no support and you would have to figure out the best way of reinstalling that support.
  4. Has the Storm Damage damaged the flexible ducting that is under your home to supply the air for your heating/cooling system. You may want to get a reputable heating and air company to do an energy audit. How they do this is they will crawl underneath of your home and check for leaks at the places where the ducting is joined together along with that will cover all of the areas of the ducting to see if there are any tears or puncture holes caused by the Storm Damage.
