ServiceMaster Restorations received a call on Thursday, May 24, 2012, at 9:40 am from a condo owner in Naples, Florida, for water damage problem. The water damage was caused by the hot water tank in the utility room. It affected the utility room, bedroom, bathroom, closet, hallway, dining room, kitchen, living room, master bedroom, foyer, and breakfast area. ServiceMaster extracted the water from the condo and then started the structural drying.
ServiceMaster removed and disposed all the wet carpet padding and drilled holes in the toe kicks. The technicians applied antimicrobial solution to avoid mold growth. The technicians set up dehumidifiers and air movers thru out the condo to assist in the drying process. In the utility room the base, drywall and insulation below the base were removed to help with the drying out of the structure. ServiceMaster’s construction department is currently working with the condo owner to rebuild the damaged areas. In the utility room they are replacing the drywall and painting to get it back to where it was before the water damage occurred. All rooms will have the walls and base repainted as part of the repairs. They will also be replacing the carpet padding and reinstalling the carpet. ServiceMaster’s carpet department then clean and deodorize all the affected carpets.
