Basement Flooding SOS

Posted Posted in General Article

Here is a water damage restoration job that is a classic example of something water restoration companies come across so often: water damage that leads to a severe black mold problem. And this mold problem is something that could have been completely avoided having the clients called a restoration company for water cleanup and dry out services upon first notifying the water damage.

The clients, Jill and Mike, had recently sold their home and are in the process of building a new home. In the interim, they found a home to rent. Upon moving in, they placed a lot of their boxes in the basement for storage. Once moved in, Jill and Mike did not have any need to venture back into the basement. About two months later, and coincidentally after a lot of heavy rain storms, Jill needed to get something from one of the boxes in the basement. Upon heading into the basement, she was horrified at what she saw!

Adeline Hornbek Homestead

Adeline Warfield was born in 1833 in Massachusetts. At the age of 25 she married Simon A. Harker, her brother’s well-to-do business partner. Harker worked as an Indian trader and merchant in the Creek Territory in what is now part of the state of Oklahoma. In 1860 he developed a lingering illness. In the summer of 1861, the couple left the Creek Agency with their two young children and traveled by wagon to the Colorado Territory, an area known for its healthful climate.

The Harkers settled along the South Platte River, just northeast of the new mining supply town of Denver, where they farmed and raised cattle. In 1863, the year their third child was born, Simon Harker filed a claim under the Homestead Act on 160 acres of land on which the family was living. When Harker died in 1864, Adeline faced life as a widow with three young children. Despite her difficult circumstances, it appears that she managed well by earning money from her crops and livestock. Foodstuffs sold for high prices in Denver because most of the supplies needed by gold miners in the area had to be brought to the territory by wagon train. Nearby farmers … Read More
