This loss was discovered during the replacement of a water heater. It was a rental unit, so once approval was obtained from the property owner, remediation began. The area affected was the closer the water heater was located in and an adjacent bedroom. At the property owners request, SERVPRO was able to remediate the area without removing the water heater. This allowed the tenants to still have hot water during the process. The area affected was slightly over 200 square feet and aside from basic remediation equipment an air scrubber was placed in containment to help clear the air for testing.
Once approval was obtained, the job was completed in just 12 days.
