We own a lower level unit built on a cement slab with a shared walls of the common area foyer. In 07/11, the upstairs unit's hot water tank broke, flooding our utility room walls/celing and common area. A restoration company removed/replaced the affected dry wall/flooring/carpeting and dried the opened wall of our unit with huge fans but did not lift our furnace/AC unit and dry our unit's cement/slab foundation. As of 08/12, we have professional meter readings of 70% + humidity throughout our home and toxic air. resulting in documented medical issues. Two weeks ago a duct/vent agent found mud in our ventsducts that are below the cement flooring in utility room. Our HVAC company verified our AC/furnace is functioning w/o problems. (Also,in 07/11, the townhome assoc used a small house fan for 2 weeks to dry the foyer but refused remove/treat affected soggy carpeting and shared walls).
