Work orders from East Tawas

Kirkland Drive in East Tawas
After severe flooding this year, it took months to clear water out of my crawl space, buying and setting up three different sump pumps. I had several inspectors come out and determine there is now black mold in the crawl. FEMA sent me $1,500 to cover expenses, but I have an estimate of $10,000 to remove the mold and install a waterproof barrier, which seems pretty expensive! Thank you for any help you may be able to offer.

Pine Lane in East Tawas
Crawl encapsulation completed July 20, 2019, has ground water building up under it (feels like a water bed), and is leaking up through an open seam and is puddling on top of the white plastic around the dehumidifier. Issue #2: The sump pump was running for 8 seconds, and off for 38 seconds for months, now pump runs 38 seconds, and off for 38 seconds. I called months ago and was told the pump is not warranted by FSM, so I would be charged $160 to have it looked at. I can send pictures if needed.

S Baldwin Resort Rd in East Tawas
My wife and I purchased this home back in August. It is not on the lakeshore but close enough that the water table is very high right now. The last time I looked there was probably 3 inches or more of water under the vapor barrier the previous owners had installed. Right now my biggest concern is getting that water out of there to prevent all the issues that come along with that much standing water in a crawl space. Please advise

You folks sealed up our crawl space a few years ago and I recollect something about re-inspection and checking for problems. We also had a leak and some of the insulation was effected. If you are ever going to be in the area doing this I would like to arrange a checkup. This is a vacation home so we would have to arrange ahead of time so we know we are here. Thanks!
