received a call Tuesday, May 29, 2012 at 7:51pm from a home owner in Fort Myers, Florida, for water damage
. Roofers were working on an addition to a house when it started to rain causing the rain water to come into the house and causing the water damage. It affected the bedroom, two bathrooms, office, kitchen, utility room, two hallways and attic. ServiceMaster extracted the water from the home, removed the insulation from the attic and then started the structural drying. ServiceMaster removed and disposed of all the wet carpet padding and toe kicks. Some of the drywall needed to be removed for proper drying and will be replaced at a later time. The vanities in the bathrooms and cabinets in the kitchen were damaged from the water and were removed. The technicians applied antimicrobial solution to avoid mold growth
. The technicians set up dehumidifiers and air movers thru out the home to assist in the drying process. ServiceMaster’s construction department
is currently working with the home owner to rebuild the damaged areas. They are replacing all the drywall, baseboards, painting and replacing all the insulation that had to be removed in the attic. New vanities were installed in the bathrooms and new cabinets in the kitchen. They will also be replacing the carpet padding and reinstalling the carpet. ServiceMaster’s carpet department
will then clean and deodorize all the affected carpeting.
