Hot water steam leak leads to mold in Orlando FL 32806

Friday, May 7th, 2021

A hot water heater in a back storage room of a commercial client leaked and caused hot water and steam to fill the storage room for several days before it was discovered. In the storage room was containers and medical documents. Visibile microbial (mold) growth was on all surface areas.

Rytech coordinated a contents cleaning and pack-out specialist to packout contents, inventory and clean all of the storage contents. Everything was securely stored offsite Rytech successfully competed the structural drying and mold remediation in the office storage closet and all contents were returned, cleaned, mold free and safe to allow the business to resume nearly uninterrupted.

Rytech worked seamlessly with the customer’s insurance company, Bankers Insurance, to ensure all parties were completely satisfied.

Rytech Orlando arrived at our clients home where water and mold damage was discovered in a closet from a shower pan slow leak. The homeowner moved out some contents and discovered mold growth. 

When the plumber arrived to identify where the leak was coming from, significant mold growth was discovered in the wall and growing on the backside of the shower tile walls.  Rytech performed a mold protocol, along with lead and asbestos testing. it was determined that the two adjacent bedrooms and hallway around the bathroom were all affected with microbial growth according to the mold assessment.  Mold remediation began immediately. The affected areas were cordoned off with poly sheeting to contain the contaminant.  HEPA filters and a dehumidifier were installed to control the environment while demolition of the affected materials took place.

After demolition, a through cleaning and antimicrobial treatment was done to all the surface areas. After several thorough rounds of necessary cleaning and treating, a mold post-clearance test was taken to ensure the areas were successfully remediated. After the mold clearance was achieved, Rytech had the HVAC duct system cleaned to ensure good air quality for the homeowner going forward.  

All claims were filed on the home owners behalf with their insurance company – Liberty Mutual.
