Mold can begin to grow as soon as 24-hours after water damage has occurred. And when a hot water heater broke at a Westerly, Rhode Island property, the excess water and steam caused not only extensive water damage in the basement crawl space, but mold as well. Our professional technicians were ready to tackle both issues in this side-by-side duplex, performing demolition on the subfloor and walls to remove drywall, insulation and a vapor barrier, and hauled away affected debris including the old water heater. They provided heaters and temporary electric, HEPA vacuumed
the ceiling and areas in the crawlspace, thoroughly cleaned damaged content in the home, removed the existing mold growth, and cleaned & sanitized all affected areas to prevent any future mold, working hard to restore the tenant’s property AND peace of mind.
