Successful Water and Mold Damage Control in Eagle Mountain, UT

At Prime Restoration LLC, we recently completed a project for a residential homeowner including water mitigation and mold remediation in Eagle Mountain, UT. The main areas affected were the master bedroom and the main floor bathroom. We will walk you through a step-by-step overview of how we handled this water and mold damage control.

How We Tackled This Bathroom and Bedroom Damage 

To effectively tackle the water damage and mold issues, we followed a detailed process that included assessment, containment, removal, and treatment. Each step was carefully executed to ensure the safety and cleanliness of the homeowner’s property. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the steps we took:

Step 1: Assessment and Preparation

When we arrived, we assessed the extent of the water damage and mold growth. The master bedroom had a wet carpet and baseboards, while the bathroom had more severe issues, initially including damaged vinyl tiles implying hidden damage beneath the tiles.

Step 2: Setting Up Containment

To prevent cross-contamination, we set up plastic barriers with heavy-duty zippers around the affected areas. This ensured that mold spores and dust didn’t spread to other parts of the home.

Step 3: Bathroom Water and Mold Damage Control

This process consisted of several other steps, including:

  • Detaching Fixtures: We started by detaching the shower surround, tub, tub drain, and faucet. This allowed us to access the mold-infested areas behind these fixtures.
  • Removing Baseboards and Toilet: Next, we removed the baseboards and detached the toilet and supply line. This step was important for accessing and treating all affected areas.
  • Flood Cuts and Tile Removal: We made flood cuts in the drywall, removing the lower sections that were wet and moldy. We also removed the vinyl tiles and underlayment to reach the subfloor.
  • Abrasive Sanding: We performed abrasive sanding on the subfloor to remove mold spores and prepare the surface for further treatment.
  • HEPA Vacuuming: We did detailed HEPA vacuuming to capture any remaining mold spores and dust. This was followed by light HEPA vacuuming to ensure thorough cleaning.
  • Dehumidification: We set up a dehumidifier in the bathroom to remove excess moisture, which is essential for preventing further mold growth.
  • Air Scrubbing: To improve air quality and remove airborne mold spores, we used an air scrubber with HEPA filters.

Step 4: Master Bedroom Water Mitigation

Like with the bathroom, bedroom water mitigation included several steps:

  • Carpet and Baseboard Removal: In the master bedroom, we removed the wet carpet and baseboards. This helped us tackle the moisture and prevent further mold growth.
  • Dehumidification: We set up a dehumidifier to dry out the area. Removing moisture is key to preventing mold from returning.
  • Air Scrubbing: To improve air quality and remove airborne mold spores, we used an air scrubber with HEPA filters.
  • Antimicrobial Treatment: We applied an antimicrobial spray to all affected areas to kill any remaining mold and prevent future growth.
