Mold Removal

I found water damage and mold under my kitchen sink. What do I do? When you find water damage or mold in your home, you might be surprised at how distraught you feel—but don’t allow your emotions to rule you. Don’t panic, and don’t get yourself into a state where you’re taking care of everything on your own, because that can lead to serious problems down the road. The first thing to do is call a professional for a mold inspection because they can give you advice on whether or not it’s a dangerous situation that needs attention right away. If it’s mold growing in common areas, such as mold in the bathtub, then there’s no need for immediate concern. Simply clean the mold from the location. However, if the materials are leaking and soaking into the floor or walls, that’s something else entirely. You’ll need to have a mold removal professional take a look at the situation immediately.

The first few steps to stop the leak under the kitchen sink.

1- Turn off the supply valves to your sink. Both the hot and the cold water pipes. These are usually found near the base of your sink and near the faucet.
2- It’s important to catch the water to avoid damaging the flooring, and to try to figure out where it’s coming from so that you can make any necessary repairs. Use a dry towel or mop inside the cabinet to soak up as much of the water as possible.
3- If the leak has been ongoing, you should call a professional right away. The longer water sits, the more damage is done.
4- Remove all of the damaged materials. If the leak was caught right away, this is typically not an issue. If the leak has been ongoing, your hired professional should be the one to handle all removal of materials as mold may be present.
5- The next step in fixing a leaking kitchen faucet is to dry out the remaining materials. Air blowers are left in the damp location for 3 or more days to ensure everything is dry before replacing any removed materials such as drywall or any framing that was damaged.
