Leaky Laundry Hookups Cause Mold
Although the damage to the wall is extensive it was the mold behind the wall that was more destructive.
The owners of this home in San Angelo didn't know how bad the leak had gotten over time. They saw the corrosion around the knobs of the laundry hookup but didn't think it was that bad. It wasn't until they could smell the musty odor from behind the wall that they chose to call SERVPRO of San Angelo.
As we removed the dry wall we continued to find mold three feet away from the initial cause of loss site. Mold can be a big problem even with a small water leak.
