A New Hampshire woman returns home from a three-day business trip to discover that her newly renovated gym in the basement had been infiltrated with gallons upon gallons of water. She was standing up to her shins in a cold, murky, mold breeding ground. She walked around her once beautifully constructed gym to gather the extent of the damages and to see if mold growth had started. Unfortunately, she found a colony of fungi making its way up a wall behind her treadmill. Flooded house repair services were needed ASAP.
In a nervous panic, she contacted Soil Away’s emergency 24/7 team for immediate flooded house repair after normal business hours. In no time, a team of experts arrived to examine the damage. They confirmed that there was significant flood damage present in the home but reassured the woman that the team will do everything within their power to restore the room back to preexisting condition and get her life and home back to normal.
As the first line of defense against mold growth and irrevocable damage to the integrity of the home, the team used high powered truck mounted water extraction pumps for flooded house repair. Because the hard wood flooring was left submerged in water for three days, it had to be discarded and the concrete floor underneath had to be thoroughly dried. In this case, moisture meters read 99 percent in the walls so sheet rock also had to be removed to allow ventilation and air to pass through the structure of the home. Following the demolition, HEPA vacuums, air scrubbers and anti-microbial agents were used to ensure that the mold spore issue was eliminated. To assist in the structural drying process, dehumidifiers and fans were also used to dry the air and create a livable atmosphere. When quick action is taken, in most cases, the structure of the home can be salvaged.
