ServiceMaster Restorations received a call from a condo owner in North Fort Myers, Florida, for water damage. The water damage was caused by the toilet supply line in the guest bathroom. It affected the bathroom, hallways, master bedroom, master bathroom and kitchen. ServiceMaster extracted the water from the condo and then started the structural drying. ServiceMaster removed and disposed of all the wet carpet padding. The technicians applied antimicrobial solution to avoid mold growth. The technicians set up dehumidifiers and air movers thru out the condo. The vanity cabinet in guest bathroom, where the water damage originated, was damaged and needed to be removed. The water from the broken toilet supply line affected the entire condo below. There was water damage to the ceiling, all the cabinets were wet and swollen from the water, and all the carpets were wet. ServiceMaster extracted all the water, pulled up the carpet, removed and disposed of all the wet carpet padding. The technicians applied antimicrobial solution to avoid mold growth. The technicians set up dehumidifiers and air movers to start the structural drying of the condo. All of the cabinets and shower in the guest bathroom of this condo unit need to be taken out, as they are damaged and cannot be salvaged. ServiceMaster started removing the cabinets and shower in the guest bathroom, drywall, and ceiling of this unit. ServiceMaster’s construction department will be doing the rebuild of the bathroom, replacing the drywall and ceiling and painting to get it back to where it was before the water damage occurred.
