Rain Caused Water Damage to Home in Fort Myers, FL

ServiceMaster Restorations received a call from a home owner in Fort Myers, Florida, for water damage problem. Roofers were working on an addition to a house when it started to rain, causing the rain water to come into the house and resulted to water damage. It affected the bedroom, two bathrooms, office, kitchen, utility room, two hallways and attic. ServiceMaster extracted the water from the home, removed the insulation from the attic and then started the structural drying. ServiceMaster removed and disposed all the wet carpet padding and toe kicks. Some of the drywall needed to be removed for proper drying and will be replaced. The vanities in the bathrooms and cabinets in the kitchen were damaged and removed. The technicians applied antimicrobial solution to avoid mold growth. Then, they set up dehumidifiers and air movers thru out the home to assist in the drying process. ServiceMaster’s construction department was working with the home owner to rebuild the damaged areas. They were replacing all the drywall, baseboards, painting and all the insulation that had to be removed in the attic. New vanities were installed in the bathrooms and new cabinets in the kitchen. Also, they will be replacing the carpet padding and re-installation. ServiceMaster’s carpet department will then clean and deodorize all the affected floor carpets.
