Hidden Mold in Irmo, SC
An ice machine caused quite the dilemma for this Irmo, SC home. SERVPRO of The Dutch Fork received a call for standing water in the kitchen area that originated behind the ice maker. It seems that a water line was pinched and began slowly leaking. By the time the homeowners realized it, there was water covering their kitchen floor and adjacent areas. Upon removing the flooring it was discovered that water had been leaking under the tile for some time and had caused a generous amount of mold growth on the sub-flooring. Mold is a health hazard and because of its rapid growth rate, needed to be handled quickly! Sub-flooring, due to its material makeup is often difficult to treat and often easier to replace than clean. Our Mold Remediation Certified technicians removed the flooring and promptly replaced it to avoid and temperature fluctuation in the home. When the drying process is complete new flooring will be installed in place of what was removed.
