RESIDENTIAL CASE STUDIES
This Project Involved A Rectory In Brevard County
This residence is a home owned by a church in Brevard County, FL.
The subject property was approximately 40 years old.
This case study involved a residential property in Brevard County. It was home to clergy that was having indoor air quality issues with the property.
They ﬁrst called an industrial hygiene ﬁrm.
The company conducted an indoor air quality assessment, and found elevated levels of mold growth within the residence. Mold had spread throughout the home. It was also determined the home had numerous areas of moisture intrusion.
The industrial hygiene ﬁrm contacted us once mold was detected in the property.
The occupant was relocated prior to starting our mold remediation process.
Over years of daily use, tiled showers in the residence had begun to leak. Brittle grout had allowed water in the shower lining to run down, into the pan. Water had been seeping out, onto the wood studs and adjoining rooms. Carpet tack strips had also been impacted by a buildup of water and moisture.
As a result, we performed a full demolition of the kitchen, master bath, and interior drywall.
1. We immediately set air scrubbers and dehumidiﬁers throughout the property. This is standard procedure when mold is present
2. All affected interior building materials were removed
3. All affected duct work was cleaned, treated or removed
4. We cleaned, treated, and sanitized the entire facility 5. The air handling unit was fully sanitized
When our work was completed, the same industrial hygienist company conducted a post- remediation air sampling test.
We passed the clearance test the ﬁrst time and turned the property back to the owner.
The total project took about 10 days.
