Case Study:

Real-Estate Owned Fixer Upper

Pro Home routinely steps in to play a crucial role, and in this case it was to prepare a real-estate owned (REO) house in shape to put it up for sale. 

“Every single time I need Pro Home Restorations services Andrew is there for me as well as my clients. Even if it’s 8pm on a weekend and the job is 20 miles away and the client’s basement is flooded with 3 inches of water. I can always count on Andrew.”
—Melissa Bacani

A charming 3BR/2BA fixer-upper in a desirable section of Northeast Philadelphia—bank-owned property, after a foreclosure—had not been maintained over the previous two years. As the house sat vacant, a leak in the roof led to rapid and extensive water damage as well as mold infestation throughout the entire property. In order for the lender to recover the value of their home, they needed to act quickly.

Day 2: Mold Remediation and Drying Process

We began the mold remediation process systematically room by room. Air scrubbers and HEPA air filtration was established to remediate air quality. We then HEPA vacuumed, cleaned, treated, and disinfected all surfaces. Advanced drying equipment ensured each room was structurally dry. During the final stage of the remediation process zero-VOC, anti-fungal sealants were used to encapsulate any affected areas.
