Overcoming Water and Mold Damage in this Ft. Myers Home
As the video explains, this Ft. Myers residence fell victim to substantial water damages while the owners were out of state. Returning to this kind of widespread damage can be overwhelming, but they decided to call our rapid response team to help. Within a brief period, our team was able to load up our advanced equipment and set out to the address with the personnel and tools to help mitigate the situation.
Given that the problem had persisted for several days to this point, mold had already started to form throughout damp affected areas through the property. This growth would become a priority for the team dispatched, as this would pose a significant threat to both structural integrity of the host materials and those exposed to the colony before our SERVPRO professionals arrived. While some of the materials would ultimately get removed to eliminate the spreading colonization, other techniques are available to our technicians for removing a present growth such as soda blasting and sanding.
Additionally, our professionals can spray unaffected or lightly affected surfaces and contents throughout the property with an OSHA-approved antimicrobial solution to reduce the possibility of further growth and spread of the organism throughout the property. Drying out the affected areas becomes a priority as well, both for cleaning up the water damages as well as remediating the mold colonies.
Our SERVPRO emergency response team was able to remove many of the at-risk components of the house to prevent further degradation and irreparable damages. Our Contents Department returns these items to the home once the water has gotten removed, the affected areas have gotten thoroughly dried, and any present mold growth has gotten eliminated.
Mold and water damages were not what these homeowners expected to return to from their trip, but with the fast response and advanced equipment of our emergency response team, they soon can return to their home “Like it never even happened.” Give our SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda technicians a call today at (941) 575-5910.
