Source: Shower drain line (CAT 2-3 loss) Per IICRC guidelines all porous and semi-porous building materials are recommended to be removed and disposed of. Areas affected: Family room, bedroom, and partial staircase building materials affected: Drywall, insulation, framing, baseboards, and engineered wood flooring elevated moisture was detectedPresumed microbial growth is visible equipment set up: n/aAs discussed, per AQMD laws, we are required to have asbestos testing performed by a third-party hygienist prior to any demolition. I can coordinate this for you with Tru Eco and arrange to have them bill you directly. Recommendations: Under containment, remove affected drywall, insulation, cabinet, and baseboards in the bedroom and family room. Wire brush and treat the exposed wood framing with an antimicrobial agent. Install drying equipment to properly dry the wood framing. Per your request, we will attempt to dry the flooring in place. Please be advised we are recommending removal of the affected flooring as most likely secondary damage (presumed microbial growth is under the flooring as well). Edgar provided two pricing options:$4,000 cash price: Removal of affected building materials, wire brush and treat the exposed wood framing with an antimicrobial agent, dry out of the affected areas, attempt to dry wood flooring in place. (NO POST REMEDIATION CLEARANCE TESTING WITH THIRD PARTY HYGIENIST, THEREFORE ADDITIONAL WORK THAT WOULD BE PERFORMED TO PREPARE THE PROJECT FOR CLEARANCE TESTING WOULD NOT BE NEEDED). (The cost for repairs is not included in this proposal)$5,955 cash price: Removal of affected building materials, wire brush and treat the exposed wood framing with an antimicrobial agent, dry out of the affected areas, attempt to dry wood flooring in place. (POST REMEDIATION CLEARANCE TESTING WITH A THIRD PARTY HYGIENIST WOULD BE ARRANGED (Clearance testing and repairs are NOT included in this estimate. Clearance testing runs $800-$1000 for a project this size) The additional cost would include covering the wood flooring with 6mil plastic, (we would not pass clearance testing with the flooring in place), final wipe down and HEPA vacuuming of the containments, allowing air filtration device to run for 48 hours prior to clearance testing) Long story short, the second proposal is for the additional labor and equipment.
