The client had ice damming on his roof a few years before, but never thought anything more about it. Now, he is selling his home and the buyer’s home inspection found mold like substance on the attic sheathing and rafters. This certainly could affect the home selling process for the homeowner. He didn’t want the sale of his home to fall through, therefore he reached out to Alliance to get an estimate for the repair.
Alliance Restoration, Inc. sent out an estimator for an onsite assessment of the attic area. Pictures and measurements of the affected area were taken and used in preparing an estimate for the client. While onsite our estimator noticed some possible venting issues (Bathroom fan not vented properly) that may have contributed to the problem. We provided a referral for a venting specialist to have this accessed. The homeowner hired the venting specialist to make all necessary corrections prior to the start of our project.
On the first day, we set up a containment system to help protect the other areas of the home from contamination, installed a protective barrier over the attic insulation, and performed our traditional mold remediation process. This process includes Hepa vacuuming, sanitizing, and coating the affected area. We installed new baffles where necessary and pulled back any insulation that was covering the existing soffit vents.
“It is apparently common to discover some mold in the attic, during a home inspection prior to sale in this geographic area. Alliance was able to schedule an inspection for estimate and complete the work in a very timely manner. The receipt was also a report of the work completed with before and after photos. The crew arrived right on time and worked diligently to complete the project. All parties are happy with the work!”
