Water Damage Removal in Brighton, CO

Location: Brighton, CO 80601

Problem: This large water damage and mold removal project started from a boiler unit failing and blowing hot steam under the house. For several days, the entire crawl space was saturated with moisture. Soon after, mold growth was visible and the need for mold removal and our dry-out services were immediate.

Solution: Our crew removed all the crawl space contents, documented, inventoried, cleaned, and repacked all the effected goods into new storage containers and boxes. The next step was to remove all the insulation and other biodegradable materials from the area. A detailed HEPA vacuuming and wet wiping of all the permanent wooden structures throughout the crawlspace was completed. The areas where mold growth was heavy, sanding was completed. Each one of these mitigation steps was completed again to ensure all mold was removed. Next, fans, heating units (E-Tes), dehumidifiers, and air scrubbers were placed to begin the drying process. Once the drying standard was reached, an encapsulation was applied to all the wood surfaces throughout the crawlspace. Lastly, a anti-microbial was applied to the soil and a vapor barrier was installed to help keep the area clean and safe for the customer. Water damage removal and mold removal was performed and the customer was very satisfied.
