Garage Washout

We recently received a distressing call from a young couple in Clairemont’s University Heights area. They experienced a property emergency when an upstairs dishwasher leaked into their garage. We arrived at the scene immediately to assess the damage. Using moisture meters and infrared cameras, we verified the extent of the damage and identified it as a category two loss.

Before starting, however, our skilled team conducted a thorough pack-out of the couple’s belongings. We also performed an abatement test due to the home’s age (it was built in 1987). Thankfully, it came back negative, which gave us the signal to begin working.

Our equipment dried out the structure (L), with most of the water damage coming from above (R).

Wearing our personal protective equipment (PPE) gear, we established a containment area to block the affected space from the rest of the home. Next, we carefully removed the saturated drywall and insulation. Our technicians were cautious during this process as the house shared its structure with four neighboring units. Then, we dried the affected area using one dehumidifier and four air movers. Our crew applied an anti-microbial treatment to avoid mold growth as a preventative measure.

After five days, we completed a final inspection and determined that the restoration met our criteria. The homeowners were thrilled with the results. Another job accomplished, thanks to our stellar team!
