Advanced Bio Treatment received a call to our office in Jacksonville, Florida.


It wasn’t a typical day nor was it a typical cleanup. The caller was requesting our services for their home that was recently damaged in a serious flood. While they were on vacation a pipe busted in their basement which caused the floor above the basement to flood also. They explained that the damage was extensive and they need us as soon as possible.

We wanted to get some more information before we packed up and headed their way. The owner of the home was explaining how the wood floors started to buckle, the walls were soaking wet and the drywall obviously needed to be disposed of and replaced. She told us that it smelt of mildew heavily and that it was repulsive to even be inside the home.

What a lot of people don’t know is that water damage can be extremely serious and unsafe. Of course it’s unsettling that all of your possessions are soaked and possibly ruined but concrete, drywall and wood can act as a sponge and hold water which then will create mold.


Mold is not safe and can cause serious health related issues which is why it’s so crucial to contact a professional cleanup service company like us at ABT.


When ABT arrived on scene with our trained technicians we prepared for the worst. When we arrived inside the first thing we noticed was the awful smell and the soggy appearance of the inside of the home. It was quite devastating and unfortunate.

In this type of cleanup we have to remove all the moisture from the walls, wood, drywall and carpets. It’s an extensive process and took us days to fully complete this home. ABT wants to ensure that all the water and the chances of mold or mildew growing again are eliminated because mildew and mold can cause asthma, respiratory and other health related problems that could have been avoided. This is why ABT takes each and every job serious no matter the size or duration, your safety and health are important to us.


If you need a water/flood damage cleanup service please don’t wait until it’s too late to call us. Advanced Bio Treatment holds the experience, professionalism and the advanced trained individuals to get your home back to it’s normal condition. Call us today!
