What happens when you don’t discover a leak right away…

We were hired by a boutique hotel in Manhattan to come in and help them with a small water damage they had discovered in their basement.  When we did our walk through we discovered that large amounts visible of mold had developed over the last 8 months in the basement storage areas and utility rooms.

The customer was unable to find the source of the leak, and in this case it led to a much larger problem then what was originally thought.  Eventually the source of the leak was found along the basement wall where the building meets the sidewalk.  When this was discovered as the source, they were able to pinpoint the leak start date as 8 months ago.

We quickly changed our scope to mold remediation and in 4 days had the area cleaned and ready for post testing.
