2 Hr. Restorative Drying for Water Damage & 2 Hr. Restoring Contaminated Buildings CE  Courses

2 Hr. Restorative Drying for Water Damage & 2 Hr. Restoring Contaminated Buildings CE Courses

These courses have been specifically designed to teach and explain the special procedures used by professionals in storm and large loss response and contaminated water response. Storm events may significantly impact the local area they strike causing damage of a magnitude so great that the storm is followed by chaos and confusion. While the cleanup and restoration following a storm event can be a long, tedious effort, mitigation efforts must begin quickly to prevent storm-damaged properties from escalating to contaminated properties.

RIVERFRONT COMMUNITY CENTER: LEAVENWORTH KS

RIVERFRONT COMMUNITY CENTER: LEAVENWORTH KS

November 13th 2014 a sprinkler line burst in an area undergoing renovation at the Riverfront Community Center in Leavenworth Kansas. Originally serving as the Union Pacific Train Station it was built in 1888. Water poured down through the construction area into the main lobby and the lower level of the structure. SERVPRO of Leavenworth & NW Wyandotte Co. was onsite and crews were immediately dispatched to begin mitigation. The original wood work in the main lobby was heavily affected. A drying chamber was erected, resulting in the restoration this unique feature of this historic structure without demolition.

SINGLE SOLDIERS QUARTERS: FORT LEAVENWORTH

SINGLE SOLDIERS QUARTERS: FORT LEAVENWORTH

During the summer of 2013 high humidity caused extensive microbial growth to twenty-three vacant units in the Single Soldier’s Quarters on Fort Leavenworth. All non-salvageable contents were HEPA vacuumed, sealed in bags, and removed from the building per I.I.C.R.C. S520 standards. Crews moved unit to unit, establishing containment and negative pressure for each to prevent the spread of contamination to unaffected units in the building. Once all affected materials were removed, thorough cleaning and HEPA vacuuming of all surfaces in each unit was performed. Post remediation verification confirmed all units had returned to Condition 1 normal fungal ecology.

POST EXCHANGE:  FORT LEAVENWORTH

POST EXCHANGE: FORT LEAVENWORTH

During a massive storm event on 7/6/15 water flooded through the back offices, bank, and sales floor of the POST EXCHANGE affecting approximately 30,000 SF. SERVPRO of Leavenworth & NW Wyandotte Co. was on site within hours to assess damages and begin a scope of work. Crews were on site shortly afterwards to begin stabilizing the loss site. Containment was set up and store displays were moved in order to allow the facilities to remain open during work.

A 53’ tractor trailer full of drying equipment and supplies was on site within 48 hours to supply crews with everything they would need to properly perform emergency mitigation services. 1 project manager, an assistant project manager, 2 supervisors, and 25 production technicians were on site to get the affected areas back up and running for business as soon as possible. Affected drywall and carpet were removed, drying equipment was set up, and the entire work area was meticulously cleaned.

ST. MARY’S HIGH SCHOOL: INDEPENDENCE, MO

ST. MARY’S HIGH SCHOOL: INDEPENDENCE, MO

A lack of climate control, combined with ground water intrusion caused primary water damage resulting in elevated humidity levels contributing to secondary mold damage to building materials. Containment and air filtration devices were utilized to establish negative pressure in the affected area to ensure that unaffected areas of the school would not be contaminated. All affected porous materials (carpet, trim, drywall, and shelving) were removed; all cabinets were removed to inspect the drywall behind them for contamination. All non-porous materials with visible mold were cleaned according to I.I.C.R.C. S520 standards. All surfaces in the contaminated area were then thoroughly HEPA vacuumed to remove any settled spores. Containment area was left under negative pressure for two days after work was completed and post-remediation verification confirmed the area was returned to Condition 1 fungal ecology.

NEWMAN HOUSE:  MARYVILLE, MO

NEWMAN HOUSE: MARYVILLE, MO

The Newman House is student housing at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, MO. During the summer of 2012, a broken water line in the second floor laundry room flooded the structure. Vacant at the time, the water intrusion remained unnoticed. Mold caused extensive damage to the majority of the residence. Affected nonstructural porous materials were removed. Affected structural materials were soda blasted to remove excess microbial growth. Non-porous materials were treated with an EPA registered disinfectant. After initial cleaning and soda blasting were completed, all surfaces in the structure were HEPA vacuumed to remove settled spores. Post-remediation verification testing confirmed the building was returned to Condition 1 fungal ecology.
