Problem: Customer was in the process of having their roof replaced. The roofing crew had tacked a tarp over the exposed roof, however the tarp was no match for the thunder storm that came through over night.
Solution: The customer's entire house had been saturated by the rain and they needed help quickly. AdvantaClean responded to the emergency within the hour and got started setting up drying equipment and extracting water. The elderly home owner's had lived there for over 50 years! While they had the help of their daughter to pack up 50 years worth of living, they were overwhelmed by the daunting task. The AdvantaClean crew worked diligently around the clock, even on the holiday, to help dry out, clean, and pack up all salvageable belongings.
The home required that asbestos testing be performed due to it's age. AdvantaClean was able to assist the customer in obtaining this service with a trusted 3rd party testing company. The results came back positive in some areas, and another 3rd party abatement company was brought in to perform the appropriate removal of the asbestos containing materials.
Once the abatement crew completed the removal, AdvantaClean was able to come back and finish the water damage mitigation.
