Helping my mechanics on a thorny truck mount problem

They like nothing better than me hovering over them, second guessing them, and making helpful suggestions.

:biggrin:

Seriously, I leave the guys completely alone. They are good at what they do.

My job is to give them the best tools and resources, a good work environment, and to stay out of their way.

In Boston on the last day of my trip/ vacation. It’s been fun. I seen a hotel napkin that had written on it, For Big messes or Big Ideas. My brain whirls.

Only 2 small jobs today then have to figure out why the pump on the Cleanco is pulsating and not holding pressure. Maybe I'll bring it to a professional.

Just finished up a two story residential that was packed to the gills with furniture and knickknacks. The elderly couple must’ve had the thermostat set on 85. Thankfully my son came with me or I would still be sweating myself to death.

After lunch, I’ll be sending out emails and making phone calls until I’ve had enough. Then I’ll spend the rest of the evening riding 3 wheelers with my son and feeding the fish in our pond.

flirted with the office girls, worked on refining a product standard pretending to be busy
EDI (equity, diversity, inclusion) meeting at noon
I'm on that woke committee to make sure old fat white guys aren't excluded 🤣

Scheduled myself an appointment for a document signing at 3 0'clock on the other side of the county.
(So I could leave at 2, be done by 3:05 and not bother coming back to the office)

went to Sam's Club and picked up a few things


..L.T.A.

Flash flood went through a garage and into a 3rd car garage bedroom, she rents from family, helped with the down payment on the house for family.

They told her to get it fixed.

This is the second time is flooded.

Obvious mold on walls and base boards.

I told her I'll dry the carpet, I don't open walls.

So I moved furniture, pulled pad sprayed quatalot top and bottom.


Extracted and cleaned replaced furniture with tabs and blocks and dropped a airpath.


I'll go back tomorrow for moisture readings.


She's a 80 year old senior treated like shit by family.


I told her $200 she said no $300.


I'm a sucker for old people.

Ps I removed wet pad and sanitized top and back and sub surfaced one small area I could pull the pad.

It could be cat 3 from her dogs.

Hopefully Quatalot works.

Technically it was fresh water not sewage

Fresh how? Was it rain that came through the window?

or rising waters from outside flooding a previously water damaged room that has mold.....and dogs?


and you really shouldn't introduce air movement (like that) into a structure with mold......not only are you now blowing it around but you are increasing the humidity in the room




you couldn't pay me extra to do things wrong, even to help an old lady, when the possibility of me getting sued over it is nonzero





I may have offered to remove the carpet/pad and extract with a written recommendation that she contact a restoration/remediation company and documenting why I did/didn't do things

I told her the walls need to be opens and that this wasn't a optimal fix.

But I guess my solution is better then leaving it.

Ps it will be dry by tomorrow she's sleeping in another part of the house.

I didn't open walls where any real problem exists.

Ps she loves me


They had the AC running no windows open.

They already transfered the problem through out the house.

Is it though? The carpet should have been removed. Mold, dogs, furniture stains etc. Especially since it was a water intrusion so not likely a situation where insurance might have a say/delay the removal. Then there is no reason to introduce air movement (by you).

and I may be wrong but you weren't even dealing with the homeowners right? That increases the potential of you having issues.

I've cleaned there 5-6 times.

They had a previous flood and didn't deal with it.


I get the responsibility part.



And my wife tried to make her go away.


But remember this I have people skills.

If it bites me in the ass I'll let you know.


They choose not to go the insurance route.

Not me.
