Flood in Vacant Home Makes Massive Mold Mess
Customer: Rincon, a large property management company
Location: Kenmore, WA
Problem: A vacant house that had been foreclosed in 2012 suffered a burst pipe in an upstairs bathroom during a deep freeze. Because the home was unoccupied, it sat for several years, developing a catastrophic mold infestation.
Solution: During the summer of 2015, AdvantaClean technicians removed all damaged and unsalvageable materials, hauling away 150 cubic yards of debris for proper disposal. We then treated all of the mold on the structural framing, rendering the house completely clean and ready for re-finishing. Coordinating with the neighbors, AdvantaClean ensured that the site remained clean during the process, and that as little disruption as possible occurred in the neighborhood. AdvantaClean passed both visual and air-sample clearance tests, administered by an independent third party, on the first try.
