We received a call from a house on Whitewater Lake that had mold in the room below the garage. The first thing we do when called to a mold remediation event is to perform a thorough inspection of the affected area. The goal of this inspection is to determine where the water or moisture is getting into the structure. We then propose solutions to stop the water from moving into the structure. Sometimes, STOP can eliminate the source of the water. Sometimes a roofer or siding contractor must be brought in to resolve the defects. Other times it can be even more complicated requiring basement contractors. Whatever the problem, a solution must be implemented so water cannot get inside the home.

In this instance, we found that the gutters were filled with leaves, downspouts were missing and the water was not moving away from the foundation walls, but was moving toward the walls. The fixes were simple and the homeowner resolved the issues without any further costs.

Fortunately, this room was a “bonus” room and did not have people living in the space. We placed our HEPA equipment in the room to filter the air and removed the wood paneling and drywall. This eliminated most of the contaminants. We replaced rotted wood and treated the studs, killing the mold. Finally, we HEPA vacuumed the entire room and sealed the mold damaged areas per national standards.

At STOP we work with our customer to meet all requirements during the restoration process. New insulation, drywall, and fresh coats primer and paint were the basic items to restore, but changing the layout to include a bathroom area was requested by the customer. We worked together on a basic design to meet that need for the customer.

It’s always our goal on a job like this to first remediate the mold from the space and make it safe for the family, but also to help the homeowner in creating a space that meets his vision.
