Asbestos Tile Removal
We had water in our basement last week and the insurance company called out Service Master to get it cleaned up. They removed the carpeting, wood, and laminate flooring and found a tile floor underneath that. Some of the tiles have been damaged and some are missing from the removal of the other flooring. I had a flooring expert come out and he said it is asbestos tile. My insurance company sounds like they just want to lay new carpet over the tile floor. Is this the correct way to do this or should we have the tile floor removed before we lay new carpet?
Mold Growth Lakeside Arizona
I had a mold inspection done by a certified mold remediation company (not yours) 18 months ago which came back clear and clean. Now I am told that the same structure is seriously contaminated with mold. My question is this: Can mold spread and grow from nothing to catastrophic contamination that quickly? Could the company have made a calculation error and missed the original problem? I would appreciate your response. Regardless of the answer I will need to be properly removed and will contact your company for that job shortly. Thank you. Linda Lane
Fire Restoration Odor
Unfortunately it was on for hours, ran out of water and flled the whole floor with smoke. The restoration company put a fan in my unit that sprayed a lemon scented product for 3 days. The unit smelled like a can of lemon pledge exploded. Then they brought in an ionizer for 3 days. The unit still has the lemon pledge smell. It’s attached it self to everything. Any suggestions?
Can mold be completely eradicated?
If you do a MAJOR mold remediation, is it guaranteed to be permanently gone? Is there a warranty?
Flooring Contractor Wont Install Hardwood Floors Because of Existing Pet Stains
I had a home improvement retailer give me a quote on my living room hardwood installation. We have a dog and that’s left the carpet thrashed. I got an estimate back for $3000 just to do the installation. Not the pulling of the carpet…I figured my husband and I would do that ourselves. I was talking to a friend and they mentioned that this particular home improvement contractor would not lay the floor if there were existing pet stains. Is that something that is universal among flooring installation contractors or is that just this particular home improvement contractor. If it is, what can we do to remove those stains?
