The Challenge: The client could not identify the source of moisture in their home.
Many homeowners today have to deal with moisture and humidity in their home. Unfortunately, if it isn’t cleared out immediately, the build-up could turn into a serious problem.
We were recently approached by a client who had a moisture issue in the basement but could not figure out where it was coming from. The accumulation of moisture caused mold and fungal growth, which posed a serious threat to their health. It also deteriorated the condition of their basement area.
The Solution: Breaking open part of the sheetrock to confirm suspicions of moisture.
Upon arriving at their home, and after thoroughly inspecting their basement, we discovered that the area in question was sandwiched between two bathrooms. The water pipes carrying the hot and cold water for both bathrooms ran behind that wall and had sprung a leak.
After going through the possible logical options and giving it some thought, we realized that the solution was simple – we had to get behind the wall! With the owner’s permission, we broke open part of the sheetrock and confirmed our doubts within an hour of beginning our investigation.
