Large house fire in Racine

Fire Damage Large house fire in Racine Outside of Racine house

A 90 minute blaze unfortunately took out an entire second story of this beautiful house in Racine. The homeowners and their dogs were luckily not injured in this massive fire. The homeowners, local business owners, were absolutely devastated. We were called in the following day to start working on their house. We had to first board it up and tarp the roof to make sure no more damage could come to this beautiful estate. We then started cleaning up all the damage. We quickly realized that the house unfortunately was to badly damaged by the fire departments water to save any of the interior. We then began a full demo. Currently we have finished with the demo of the house and is down to the framing. Our friends at Elcano Construction are working with the homeowners to get this house back to its previous glory. When they are done it will look "like it never even happened." 

Extreme Mold Growth in Racine

Mold Remediation Extreme Mold Growth in Racine Mold in Racine

When we got the call back in April for possible sump pump failure we quickly dispatched a crew to extract the water and start the drying process. A fairly normal call to receive in the rainy season. However when our mitigation manager Alex arrived first he quickly realized this was not a sump pump failure, actually this was not the normal water damage job by any means. He quickly called the rest of the crews to arrive immediately. The house was completely drenched with walls and ceilings hanging on by a thread. There was about a foot of water in the basement and another 3 inches on each the first and second floor. The water has been running for months without anyone noticing. The family was on a winter vacation and had never turned their water off. Later on it was found out to be a few broken water pipes due to freezing. This house unfortunately had well water so the city had no idea there was an excess ussage and the well water also fed mold growth with the extra minerals in the water. The water also acted as a heat source (think geothermal heat) after the furnace stopped working. Unfortunately this was about as bad as it gets for mold and water damage. We were able to dry out the frame of the house and mitigate the mold on all the framing as well. Next up is rebuilding it to its former beauty.
