Air Duct Cleaning

Location: Destin, FL 32413

Problem: A homeowner complained of a musty smell in a vacation home they were trying to sell that was so bad it was turning potential buyers away. Air sample testing reported elevated amounts of mold in the home. An inspection was done and no visible signs of mold could be found on ceilings, walls or around plumbing. During the inspection, the HVAC air handler was opened where extreme amounts of suspect microbial growth was discovered.

New Construction Mold Removal

Location: Niceville, FL 32578

Problem: Homeowner contacted us with concerns about signs of visible mold on the studs and framework of their new home that was still under construction. The builder paid extra for straight and dry wood. The wood was received onsite during a very dry period with no rain so the wood never got wet prior to the roof being added. The wood showed signs of microbial growth and would grow along the board and then a 4 inch space would be perfectly clean and then mold was growing on the other side. It was determined that the wood arrived to the job site having not been properly dried before the supplier took delivery. As a result, the lumber yard agreed to pay for our services to remediate the affected wood.

Solution: We used a three step approach that included HEPA vacuuming all exposed sides of every piece of wood in the 3800 sqf structure. Next we sprayed the wood with a solution that pulled the microbial growth out of the wood and removed the stains. This returned the wood to its original condition. Next we treated all wood surfaces with an EPA approved antimicrobial solution to kill and sanitize all framework. It was the perfect one-two punch. Pictures are worth a thousand words. See our before and after photos.

Dryer Vent Disasters

Location: Destin, FL 32413

Problem: We were called in because the homeowner said their clothes had not been getting dry for quite some time. They were running up quite an electric bill due to it taking 2-3 cycles to get the clothes dry. Then one day their dryer completely quit working.

Solution: We cleaned the dryer vent and found a 2 inch piece of PVC pipe that had been cut and fallen into the dryer vent ducting. This caused the lint to build up so air could not flow through and it eventually burned out the dryer motor which had to be repaired by an appliance technician. We were able to get the dryer vent cleaned out and they can now dry their families cloths properly on the first cycle. Don't wait until you burn out your dryer motor or have a fire hazard. Have your dryer vent cleaned on a yearly basis.
