One of the good things about providing a service that people are proud to recommend to their friends, families, and clients is that we often get work referred to us. They trust us to provide top quality work consistently and we strive to meet these expectations. We were recently referred to a job from a plumber that often trusts us with his clients and reputation.
This plumber was called out to fix a leaking water heater. He is a very aware plumber and noticed that mold was beginning to grow in the area which the water heater was leaking. This was when he reach out to us at American Emergency Restoration and Reconstruction Services.
One thing that is often on homeowners minds, is how much the cost of the service would be? When we first met with the homeowner he expressed some concerns about mold coverage in his insurance policy. We met with his insurance adjuster and were able to conclude that he did have insurance to cover this damage.
As we mentioned, the mold began when there was a leak in the water heater in the home. The plumber did a great job at fixing the leak, but the damage from the leak had taken its toll. We first did an asbestos test, which came back negative. From here we were able to set up a containment of the mold and begin the demolition of the water damaged area. We also setup dryers in the home. Because of the amount of water that had leaked and because we want to make sure that the home is safe for the homeowner to live in, we expect it to take 5 days for the home to completely dry.
The homeowner said that he was very pleased that we were able to not only help him find out if he had a mold problem but also were able to take care of the problem quickly and effectively. He was also pleased that we worked with his insurance adjuster to make sure that he had coverage for the work that needed to be done. He can now rest assured that his leak, flood, and mold damage have all been fixed.
Mold is one thing that you do not want to take chances with, because of the damage that it can have on your health. We take all the steps to make sure that you home is safe and secure for you and your family. For quality mold remediation service, call American Emergency Restoration and Reconstruction Service.
