Leaking Bathtub Causes Mold-Summerfield, FL
SERVPRO of Ocala and South Marion Country was called out to a homeowners house to discover that the bathroom tub had been leaking underneath the flooring because the drain failed. Over time and with no notice at all, water had been making its way under the flooring and dripping out under the crawl space. Not until a musty odor which grew worse and worse did the homeowner begin to suspect the bathtub. The damage a water intrusion can cause can be very devastating and the mold that is a result can be wide spread. The only cure is to remove bathroom fixtures like this bathtub and begin to uncover the damage. Mold growing on drywall, insulation, under the flooring all needed to be safely removed and sanitized. This is what the team from SERVPRO of Ocala has been doing for decades.
