Mold Remediation in Somerset VA
On Sunday September 5th, 2017 our on call crew responded to what sounded like a typical a residential water damage of which had just recently been caused. However, upon their arrival, the crew began to see signs indicating that the damage had been taking place over a longer period of time. Not only were the hardwood floors buckling but they were also discolored and had suspect growth along the edges of each plank of wood. When going down to inspect the unfinished basement, there was a puddle of sludge. This was another indication that the water had been dripping for a while and the water that puddled on the basement floor became stagnant and eventually turned into sludge.
So what was the cause of all of this?
The cause was a pipe in the bathroom wall cavity that had been punctured with a nail, most likely when drywall was being installed.
