A slow drip in a pipe behind a wall can go undetected for quite some time.
By the time you actually notice a spot on the wall or a damp floor, mold is most likely already growing. That’s what this customer noticed after a joint in a copper supply line failed.
After we removed the drywall, sure enough, there was mold everywhere. We removed all carpeting and baseboards around the corner of the room and begun the containment and drying process.
Once the area was contained to ensure no transfer of mold spores to other areas in the home, a licensed plumber repaired the pipe leak and we began the mold removal process. Remember, if you ever see a spot on the wall or notice a damp floor, call DRIRITE immediately for fast 24 hour emergency service.
As always, if you have any need for water damage restoration equipment, services or mold remediation, give DRIRITE of Hillsborough County a call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and a live technician (not an answering service) will be on call ready to help.
