Hidden Bathtub Leak Causes Mold
A slow leak under the first floor bathtub caused mold growth on the ceiling of this finished basement beneath the bathroom. Initially there was not any sign of water intrusion or mold and thus the mold continued to spread to more and more of the ceiling. Finally the leaking water made it’s way through the ceiling and the homeowner was aware there was a problem. The professionals at SERVPRO of Medford/Everett were called in – the affected portion of the ceiling was removed and the mold remediated.
