A Tall Order: Category Two Roof Leak Seeps Into Carmel Valley Home

Reaching Up

A family of three in Carmel Valley recently got in touch with us concerning water damage caused by a roof leak in their home. Upon our initial inspection, we discovered multiple areas on the roof that led to the category-two water loss. Category two water contains contamination and can cause illness in humans if ingested. The water had affected the first-floor living room and the primary bedroom on the second floor.

The living room’s high ceiling proved challenging, as it required scaffolding. Undeterred, we pressed forward. We started by rearranging the contents in the rooms to make space for a containment area and our scaffolding. With everything set and our personal protective equipment (PPE) on, we removed the drywall, insulation, baseboard, and window trim. 

Fortunately, the primary bedroom proved less difficult. Our skilled technicians set up a containment area before removing the ceiling drywall and insulation.

The damage left behind by the category two roof leak was extensive (L) and required a containment area, plus scaffolding to restore (R).

We relied on two industrial air movers and an advanced dehumidifier in the living room and primary bedroom. These machines worked in tandem to dry any lingering moisture in the affected areas. After, we applied an anti-microbial spray to all exposed materials, which inhibited future mold growth.

In total, we completed our job in just three days. No pack-out or abatement was necessary. This quick turnaround meant the family could get back home safely and sound without significant disruptions to their daily life. Kudos to our dedicated team for rescuing the family’s home!
