Clearing a Water and Mold Damage Threat to This Large Largo Home
Our SERVPRO of Largo team has often encountered water damage incidents that have persisted long enough to become mold threats as well. As leading restoration and remediation professionals for the area, we could dispatch a crew of skilled technicians to begin addressing these concerns. As our operations and production manager explain at the beginning of the video, each portion of the clip illustrates steps in the thorough mold and water restoration work that we do. Our roster can help with:
- Mold remediation
- Water removal services
- Water damage remediation
- Black mold damage repairs
Controlled Demolition and Flood Cuts
When our professionals first arrived at the damaged home, we understood the cause of the initial water damage was a leak from a second-story bathroom. Because this damage was not addressed promptly and professionally, the effects of this disaster spread throughout the lower level of the property, spanning almost 3000 square feet. Overcoming this disaster would require a detailed plan and working closely with the customer's insurance provider to meet their requirements for coverage and claim approval. This job scoping phase, conducted by the production manager Brian you saw at the beginning of the video, focused on identifying:
- Further mold damage
- Compromised contents
- Harsh odors
- Water damages
- Structural weaknesses/vulnerabilities
With a general contractor license (CBC1250662), we were well equipped to manage the property's immediate controlled demolition and bulk material removal needs. Our SERVPRO of Largo crew had to address both the lingering water damage from the leak and creating four-foot flood cuts in multiple first-floor rooms impacted, spanning into a nearly 3,000 square feet work zone. This opening of structural cavities allowed our axial air movers and other drying equipment to regulate relative humidity and stop facilitating further mold development.
Remediation Solutions to Suit Several Situations
Several remediation strategies are visible in this video clip, as many areas of the house were impacted in different ways. Remediators of our team HEPA vacuum the staircase to remove debris and spores, technicians are hand sanding and applying antimicrobial products to exposed trusses above the office wing, and controlled demolition through multiple areas of the property with our mold remediation contracting license (MRSR1163.)
Helping Our Customers Through Mold Damage Events
The video shows the measures we take to provide a comfortable living space during the immensely intrusive mold remediation effort in Largo by our SERVPRO team. A large portable AC unit was set up and piped inside to regulate the temperature for both comfort and to make the environmental conditions unappealing for further mold growth.
The customer's satisfaction in this project was paramount for our professionals, as the scope of the job was so large and intrusive. We provided the homeowners with a walkthrough of the newly restored and cleaned lower level of the property and encouraged a clearance test conducted by a third party for additional peace of mind that the job exceeded expectations.
