After a university dormitory building had sat vacant and locked for several weeks, maintenance employees began to notice the formation of mold on furniture and carpet.  Ellis conducted a visual assessment in the impacted units.  After consulting with the Owner, Ellis brought an abatement contractor to the site, then managed the removal, cleaning, and drying process.  All had to be complete prior to the start of the new academic year.

This project was a favorite of Ellis employees because it was a true public health service.  Ellis identified the hazard and its source, then recommended and monitored appropriate cleaning, disinfecting, and drying of each dorm unit.

Ultimately, Ellis was able to clear all units as safe for students to occupy.  Ellis’ services helped to protect occupants from a mold hazard that would have worsened if not correctly handled.
