WHAT IS WATER DAMAGE RESTORATION?
At AdvantaClean, we deal with the hardships of water damage on a daily basis, so we know how to work with you and your insurance company to resolve issues--fast. Ron, one of our customers from Lacey, WA, had flooding and water damage in his home, and we were there to help him out. Here is his story:
Lacey, WA Water Damage Case Study
Problem: We were called out to a home in Lacey, WA that was having some issues with water leaking in over the two large front windows of the home. There was minor mold growth and the tenant was worried about possible mold health concerns. The homeowner who lived out of state called us to come look and get the mess cleaned up. The initial inspection was inconclusive as to the source of the water damage, but we were confident we could find the problem after taking some of the drywall down.
Solution: Containment was set up in both areas that had known water damage issues and negative pressure was applied to control our air flow to ensure no further cross-contamination of mold was caused during our work. Sheetrock and insulation were removed and discarded.
What we found was alarming and a much bigger problem than we had anticipated. Rainwater was infiltrating the stucco which was covering the entire front of the house. The problem had been ongoing for years and the wooded structure that supported the stucco was completely dry rotted and structurally unstable.
We cleaned up everything we could from the inside but ended up having to seal it off until engineers could come up with a plan to fix it. The stucco face of the house ended up having to be removed and the rotten wood structure replaced. It’s unfortunate, but sometimes there are bigger problems occurring than can be found during the initial inspection.
Water damage, as shown with Ron’s house, can be sneaky. Sometimes the signs of water damage can only be seen after a leak has been present for a long time. Because AdvantaClean was able to pinpoint the source of the leak, Ron was able to have it repaired and prevent mold and structural damage in the future. When asked about his experience, Ron said, "Jared [of AdvantaClean] was great in all aspects of the job especially since I could not visit the site personally. I would hire him again!"

DO YOU NEED A MOLD REMOVAL COMPANY?
Cleaning up mold should be left to a professional mold remediation company. And although the internet is full of DIY mold removal methods, the biggest reason is due to the microscopic mold spores and how quickly they can spread throughout the air in your home or building when disturbed.
Our mold removal process includes:
- Setting up a containment area, so mold spores do not spread throughout your home or building.
- Our MICRO and IICRC Mold Certified Technicians wear proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and respirators.
- We use HEPA vacuums to remove mold as much mold as possible.
- Dry Ice Blasting is available.
- Clean and apply a plant based disinfectant when necessary.
If you suspect you have excessive moisture buildup or mold growth but can’t find where the buildup is occurring, consider getting a mold inspection. We can find where the source of the moisture or leak is coming from by taking samples and using mold testing kits to determine how much of the mold is effecting your home or building and indoor air quality.
