Nasty flooded, Moldy Basement

Location: Dunwoody, GA 30338

Problem: This is what happens if you leave a flooded basement for too long. Advantaclean of Sandy Springs was called out to this house in Dunwoody, Georgia. The hot water heater was still leaking when we arrived.

Solution: We brought in our plumber to stop the water source. We set up negative pressure and built containment to prevent further mold contamination. The nasty category 3 water was extracted, and 4 foot flood cuts were made throughout the entirety of the basement. A drying system was set up, and chlorine dioxide was released to assist with smell and kill mold spores. The entire basement was covered in mold, so everything was wiped and HEPA vacuumed. We passed the mold clearance test on the first shot, pretty typical for us nowadays.

Mold On The Ceiling

Location: Atlanta, GA 30342

Problem: The tenant found a large spot of mold on her ceiling. She told the property manager who called Advantaclean to the rescue. We went out, surveyed the damage and quoted a price. Time was a concern, so we worked over the weekend to get the job done quickly.

Solution: All four walls and the ceiling were completely saturated, due to an upstairs pipe leak, so we removed everything. When we opened up the wall cavity next to the water heater we discovered another small leak, which we had a plumber fix. We treated all of the surfaces of the mold and started the drying process.


Full Basement Remediation

Location: Ellenwood, GA 30294

Problem: During a home sale mold was noted by the home inspector. Due to the extent of the mold, an entire basement remediation was required.

Solution: A negative pressure barrier system was built to contain mold spores released during remediation. All of the insulation had to be pulled and discarded offsite, due to mold spore contamination. After the insulation was removed, we did a thorough cleaning of the basement, using HEPA vacuums.

The surfaces were then treated with a peroxide based product to penetrate into the wood and kill the root structure of the mold.

Black Mold in the Walls

Location: Sandy Springs, GA 30350

Problem: My customer used the preferred provider recommended to them by their insurance company. IICRC protocol was not followed, the walls were not even opened for proper drying. Black mold grew inside their walls and they started experiencing adverse health effects.

Location: Atlanta, GA 30309

Problem: We were called in to clean up raw sewage from a restaurant parking lot. When their sewer system backed up it came out of a pipe located outside. The smell was bad, customers were in line.

Solution: To ensure mold did not develop, we removed the affected carpet padding and baseboards. Since this was clean water we were able to save and dry the carpeting.
