Siding was recently done to this home, contractors sent a nail through a plumbing pipe leaking behind the walls for some time. Unfortunately due to the longevity of the damage the wood floors were unsalvageable. Damage extended past the floors with the amount of time the home had to dwell allowed for damage to the cabinets and sheetrock. This dusty project was cleaned, sanitized, remediated and restored in 8 Days. This project took 6 Air Movers, and 1 Dehumidifier.

Although when you are sold this product you're told it resembles real wood and that is water resistant. What they don't tell you is that it ISN'T waterproof, when water evades the moisture barrier (Plastic Backing of thin pad) at the bottom of the Laminate Free Floating Plank, it simply will not dry. If prolonged it becomes a hotspot for microbial growth. The only way to fully remediate is to remove material and apply dehumidification and air movement to the surrounding wall cavities and base flooring (Concrete/Subfloors).
