Project: Private Residence
Location: Livonia MI
Type: Water Damage/Mold
This particular home owner owns (2) separate residences. One they stay at during the summer months in northern Michigan and one they stay at during the winter months in southern Michigan. When they came back in the fall to their winter residence they discovered that their upstairs toilet tank had cracked and had been running for 2 – 3 weeks. All (3) levels of their residence had sustained significant damage. They contacted our company to handle the situation. The couple that live in this residence are retired and have been married for over 60 years and had a large amount of contents and furniture that were damaged throughout the entire residence which had to be classified as unsalvageable. (6) 20 yard dumpsters were utilized to dispose of the contents. Once the contents had been removed from the residence, drywall, hardwood floors, carpeting and cabinetry had to be removed. Once the saturated building structural components were removed drying equipment was placed throughout the residence. Due to the length of time the water had been running, mold had developed on the basement concrete walls and ceiling joists. The mold was removed utilizing dry ice blasting equipment. This specialized equipment works like a sand blaster although instead of using sand it uses dry ice pebbles to remove the mold leaving very little post abatement clean up. All abatement activities were performed under accepted industry health and safety standards. The reconstruction of the residence began immediately after the demolition was complete and was finished in approximately (60) days. This job was handled by us as a complete turnkey project from settling the loss with the insurance company, performing emergency drying services, contents restoration and final restoration of the residence.
