We found standing water in our sandy crawlspace after noticing a terrible smell in our home. We discovered the clothes washer hose had come off and all the water was draining into our crawlspace. We don't know how long it's been like that, but we assume it's been quite some time because the smell is so bad. We stopped using the washer until someone can get down to fix it, but, the smell has not gotten any better (it's been 5 days).
I have a few questions:
Can we expect the sand to absorb the water?
If so, will the smell go away on its own?
Any help would be appreciated.
