So fortunately, uh, sometimes you open it up and you still don’t know what’s going on and, and that can be frustrating. But this one we knew right away what was causing the leak. Um, you could clearly see, um, it was coming from that elbow and that it looked like it wasn’t, it was maybe put on, um, just Kinda, it wasn’t centered. And so it, uh, it wasn’t tightened up correctly. And so this water damage Denver job, um, was easy to, to find out what happened. And so, uh, we don’t do any of the repairs on that side. They have a radon specialist that was actually there with us. So he was able to, um, go ahead and cut those pieces, put together, uh, the correct piece. And, and put it all together. So, um, they’re going to address the, the s the roof, um, exit point as well, just because you don’t, you don’t want to have this happening down the road.
Yeah. There, there is always possibility of moisture getting in. We had, um, I mean usual amount of, of moisture that that occurred, this, um, kind of late spring. And so that’s kind of what caused it. So that’s kind of what I suspected, not necessarily the radon but something to do with our weather. Um, so this particular water damaged Denver job, um, had, um, excess moisture coming from rainwater. And so what we did after, um, he repaired that. So what we want to do is anytime you disturb any type of mold like that, we want to make sure that we keep it sealed, but we want to clean the air as well. Um, sometimes spores, even when you’re careful, um, in any, whether it’s from, uh, uh, just a mold job or anything else, these spores can, um, get airborne. And so you want to, um, take care of the air, the indoor environment air.
So what we have is equipment for that. We have an air scrubber that we put inside the closet, inside the contained area in that then about every three hours would circulate the air. Um, this was exposed into the indoor cavity or the indoor or the inner parts of the, of the framing of the home. So obviously the air gets passed through through the rest of the house. So about every three hours the, the whole house would have that air scrubbed and clean. So every, um, so eight times a day, the whole air of the home, um, would be clean. So we try and do this anytime it’s, you have a severe water damage, Denver job, you want to make sure that the indoor environment, the air quality is acceptable. And then that’s why you would want to use these air scrubbers. So we can certainly keep things clean and breathable and everything is, is fine.
Um, there are air tests that we can do, um, post, um, air quality tests or you can kind of do a benchmark and do a pretest and kind of see where you’re at. Generally when it’s this small of a mold, we don’t, um, but it’s certainly not unusual for us to do it. Anytime we have mold, we just wanna make sure 100% that when everything is done with the water damaged Denver job that uh, the air quality is, is where it should be. Um, and the only way to know 100% is to do a post test. So, so this particular water damage, Denver job wasn’t necessary. Uh, we didn’t do one. Um, but we’re fairly confident that, uh, after doing it for so many years that everything was taken care of. Um, you know, certainly running, letting that run for three days, we know we scrub that air.
Um, like I said, eight times per day days, so, um, that air was scrubbed 24 times within the house. So fairly confident everything is, is, is good. So we went ahead and, um, left that there for three days. So what happens after we deal with a water damaged Denver job like this? Um, sometimes we will do it and sometimes our contractor will do it, but they will come back in and, uh, put new dry wall up. Um, texture it if need be and then paint it. So we want to, the main goal, anytime we deal with, uh, water damage, Denver job or a fire job or mold anything, we want to get it back to the pre-loss condition of the home. So what that simply means is we want if the, if the wall was fine when it before water, we want it find after the water.
So that’s what we had done here. Um, we didn’t do it, but um, we came in and after, so they would then put up new drywall. They textured it. Uh, this particular, oddly enough, this, um, closet was textured so they would go back in or they went back in, put new texture up, new drywall, re textured it, and then painted it. So then what we come in is we, after all that’s done, uh, our last step is to come in and do a Hepa Vac. So that’s what we had done. Um, we, that’s cleaning the walls, vacuuming everything, floors, anything like that. And that’s just one more step to ensure there’s no spores or anything like that that could pose an issue, um, for the, the occupants there. So we went ahead and did that. So this water damage, Denver job, um, had all the steps necessary to take care of it.
It wasn’t a big job by any means, but we still, um, don’t like to skip any steps. And we try and do a as thorough as possible and ensure the safety of the occupants as well as getting taken care of. Um, the mold, which was then caused by the water damage Denver, um, issue that was present there. And so we found that, but that’s just one other different way of, of moisture getting into the home. So it not necessarily comes from a broken pipe or a a dishwasher or a toilet that overflows or anything like that. So there’s many ways in which water can enter the, the home there. And this was just one that came through, um, oddly enough through the roof there and, um, through a, a radon to being so, um, certainly like challenges like this too, where we don’t know what’s going on. We initially start, but then figuring it out and then, uh, taking care of it. So with big foot restoration, anytime you’re dealing with, uh, a new water damage, a Denver job, we liked that challenge of figuring it out and taking care of our people and, and our clients there. And, um, so if you have anything in the future, don’t hesitate to call.
