Hazard and Damage Removal
When decontaminating a crawl space or attic, we first check for any safety hazards, following OSHA and COIT rules for confined space entry. We then extract standing water using our truck-mounted extraction equipment. If your insulation has been affected, we will remove the damaged insulation, bag it up, and safely dispose of it. We will also check vapor barriers (a sheet or coating that prevents water vapor from permeating walls) and remove them if they have been damaged.
For Smoke and Fire Damage: Vacuuming
Technicians will use HEPA vacuums to remove fine particulates from the area, as well as set up appropriate equipment to scrub the air and remove odors. Soot stains will be treated using methods appropriate to the contaminated surface.
Once the crawl space decontamination process is complete and the space is dry, and the drying equipment has been removed, we will replace your insulation and vapor barrier.
