ServiceMaster Restorations received a called to a home in Cape Coral, FL that had mold growing on the ceiling of the garage, in the vehicle that was parked in the garage, the walls and contents in the garage. The homeowner was unsure of when the problem occurred as they live out of state and flew in to find the mold growth in their garage. The source of the mold is believed to be from an air conditioning unit that leaked into the garage. ServiceMaster extracted the water from the garage. The water technicians then started the structural drying. Once the structure was dry, ServiceMaster’s mold remediation technicians tore out all of the affected drywall, removed and properly disposed of all the contents that were affected by the mold. After the removal, the next step was remediation. Mold remediation includes sanding 1/32” of wood to remove the mold spore. After this is complete, a growth inhibitor is then painted on the affected areas. The whole garage was then cleaned with a hepa vacuum and wiped down with an antimicrobial solution. An air quality test was than performed on the garage to make sure that it was free of all mold spores. The garage passed the air quality test the first time and ServiceMaster started the reconstruction of the garage, which includes hanging drywall, painting, etc. to get the garage back to where it was before the mold damage. The vehicle that was parked in the garage had mold growth and was sent to a dealership for remediation. ServiceMaster helped the dealership in the mold remediation of the vehicle.

Well.. it has been 3 months since our water damage / mold was discovered, and all in all Service Master has done a great job… Special thanks to Melissa, Kim, Charlie and Michael… they were most helpful in so many ways making a horrible situation become OK again. Melissa helped me when it was a devastating blow to see what all we had lost… and she helped me off the cement when I fell; Kim who helped my friend Sue hang UMPTEEN golf pictures and talked me into many things I wasn’t sure of… she did a great job and we are happy; Charlie who promised me someone would be in our condo every day working… and he kept that promise; and Michael who did so many odd jobs and helped out with many, many things and was so pleasant to have in our home….Mary Cole
