Concord Condo Suffers Water and Mold Damage

SERVPRO Professionally Removes Water and Remediates Mold Damage in the Concord Area

Vacationing up north is always a fun idea for the summer, especially when you have a house to visit. However, things didn’t go as planned for this tenant in Concord, Massachusetts when visiting her vacation home.

A neighbor next to her condo had noticed spongy carpets in the hallway entrance to the apartment building. The neighbor had notified the office, and the property manager called the owner of the building right away. The owner, who had been living in Colorado, got the news that their Concord unit had sustained mold and water damage created by the water heater. He was very shocked by this news, because he had owned this property since 2008, and never had this problem before. The owner left his Colorado home to check on the scene and decided what steps he needed to take next. Because the tenant had been away on vacation, mold had spread throughout the residence. Apparently, the mold had been growing and water dripping for about a month before anyone noticed the leakage.

The owner immediately called his insurance company who recommended SERVPRO for water and mold restoration services. We excel at remediating the mold and extracting the water from the affected areas. There was substantial mold found in the boiler room closet as well as the baseboards of the family room and kitchen cabinets. The water damaged carpet in the condo was not able to be saved due to the length of time the carpet had been wet and the extent of the mold damage. The crew arranged for the contents to be removed from the area to prevent further mold proliferation.

SERVPRO first removed the affected carpet that was soaking wet from the water damage. The technicians used powerful equipment to initially lift and remove most of the water. They then used advanced equipment to contain the area with the mold and to extract the water. The crew then set up containment around the affected areas using thick 6 mil poly sheeting and poles so that the mold could not spread any further. This is a vital step in the mold remediation process to limit the damage. Next, the crew used air scrubbers for air purification and dehumidifiers to remove residual moisture to dry the areas fully. Our technicians applied an antimicrobial product to all the affected areas. Selective deconstruction was done, removing the drywall four feet off the floor.

The property owner came and examined the property and stated that SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord was the right company to call. We are available 24 hours 7 days a week to restore your investment property to its preloss condition, "Like it never even happened." (978) 486-9868
