PIC Home Pros Case Studies: Salisbury MA Basement Mold Removal

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016 by Anthony Picarello

Challenge

Homeowner rents single family home to single professionals who had slight symptoms of asthma and sinus concerns. PIC did a full assessment and found water and moisture penetration coming in from the basement foundation. PIC identified water staining and visible mold behind the walls. PIC recommended a full waterproofing system be installed once the mold was removed due to the hydrostatic pressure causing water penetration at the foundation level. PIC was hired to remediate the mold and install the professional waterproof system. The challenge PIC faced was the time frame to complete the work since this was a full demolition project and the tenants could not reside at the property once work started.

Solution

PIC dispatched their emergency response unit to quickly contain the property, temporarily install a professional Air Scrub HEPA system and remove all bio-hazardous mold affected materials which took 2 full days. Once all mold was contained and removed PIC did a full HEPA sweep of the property and applied two treatments of antimicrobial to remove all airborne mold spore activity. 

PIC allowed the Air Scrub HEPA system to filtrate and turn over the air for 5 straight days, prior to a third and final treatment. After 8 days and the property restored back to a safe living space all tenants moved back in.
