Case Studies

Exhaust Duct Cleaning in Gym Locker Room

Location: Sugarland, TX 77478

Problem: Lifetime Fitness had a dirty exhaust duct in the locker rooms.

Regular use of locker room exhaust for over 10 years resulted in substantial amounts of build-up in the ducts and reduced airflow.

Solution: AdvantaClean of Houston Central performed air duct cleaning to rid the exhaust duct from debris. We conducted a thorough cleaning of the duct work with the system under negative pressure (vacuum) to collect and remove disturbed dust and build-up found along the system. Removed, cleaned and sanitized all exhaust covers, and cleaned exhaust fan on the roof of the building improving the system performance and efficiency.

We removed cove base and determined a method for proper drying of the walls.

Birds in kitchen hood/vent 

Location: Houston, TX 77007 

Problem: Birds entered the kitchen hood vent from the outside louvered cover. Home owner had been hearing the birds and was concerned about contamination. Air duct cleaning and coil cleaning need to be performed. 

Solution: The range hood was carefully removed and two dead birds were discovered inside the hood. A sizable nest was found inside the air duct. The fan and the hood were contaminated to the extent that they were considered unsanitary for reuse. After disposal of the hood, the air duct was thoroughly cleaned, the nest removed, and the exterior cover was fitted with a screen that prevents birds from going in the vent.

Mold removal in the attic (AdvantaClean Of Houston Central)

Location: Houston, TX 77004

Problem: A homeowner discovered  mold on one of the attic walls. 

A recurring small roof leak caused the growth of suspect mold on one of the attic's walls at a residential property. The homeowner contacted AdvantaClean with her concern, looking for a solution that would be safe for her family.

Solution: AdvantaClean of Houston Central performed the mold remediation to safely remove all contaminated materials. The remediation was conducted after containment (plastic barrier) had been built around the area and under negative pressure (vacuum) in order to prevent contamination to other parts of the building. All materials the were exposed to mold were sanitized and dried.

Water trapped in behind ceiling

Location: Houston, TX 77007

Problem: After a roof leak had been repaired, the home owners were left with a big water stain on the ceiling and some of the paint coming off. They were concerned that there may still be moisture on and behind the ceiling that could potentially lead to a mold issue in the future. 

Solution: AdvantaClean inspected the ceiling and found excessive moisture on the drywall. A plan of action was discussed with the home owner and we proceeded to remove parts of the ceiling and continue to measure moisture behind the drywall. It was found that much of the plywood and wood beams were very wet, even thought the leak had occurred weeks earlier. After removing just enough drywall to gain sufficient access to the wet materials, we set up fans and a dehumidifier in order to dry all materials. 24 hours later all materials tested "dry" and the area is ready for new drywall.
