Our Tech Team determined the amount and significance of the damage that was done. It was determined that materials needed to be removed due to coming into contact with a contaminated source. Our professional crew performed demo throughout the affected materials. Once materials were removed, monitoring took place to see if there was any remaining moisture in the frame/studs. Remaining moisture was found and our state-of-the-art drying equipment was placed to assist with final drying phase. We were able to complete drying and the family living here was able to enjoy their home in a speedy time.
