Water Damage From Your Shower
Water damage can be very unexpected and an inconvenience for many!
If left untreated, a water leak in your bathroom can cost you, especially if it leads to serious water damage to walls, floors and paint.
No matter how well and how often you clean your bathroom, mold or mildew can appear if you have a hidden water leak.
It's normal for a little mildew to occur wherever water accumulates, such as corner of a shower, mold or mildew on non-shower walls or in corners of the bathroom is a clear sign that water is leaking somewhere and finding its way to those areas.
A leaky pipe provides plenty of moisture, so the longer it takes you to detect and fix the leak, the easier and faster mold will grow.
When a drywall is exposed to moisture, it becomes soft and begins to bubble, ultimately warping and breaking into pieces. If the leak reaches the ceiling, it causes it to sag and possibly leak some of the water that has accumulated.
To fix this a restoration company must tear out the drywall, requiring someone to patch and paint when the job is finished.
