Hyde Park Water and Mold Damage
The leak from the water heater allowed the liquid to wick into the sheetrock wall panels. The mold damaged is very visible in this Hyde Park rental unit indicating secondary water damage consequences. SERVPRO advises property owners to act quickly when a water drip is discovered. Our crew tore out the non-salvageable building material; there was not an option. If we had been notified to fix the leak and dry out the wall at first discovery, the landlord could have saved money. The exposed interior of the water heater closet after the controlled demolition depicts a prepared area, free of visible mold, dried with our equipment and then spray with an antifungal product. Time for the installation of a new water heater after the walls has been closed up.
