Water Heater Leaks
Water Heaters can be a very common cause of water damage and cause mold growth. It's common for us to deal with Water Heater leaks and many times, they are a slow leak, just enough to slowly get drywall damp or wet, then the framing and if left too long, mold will start to grow very quickly.
Please note the location of your Water Heater and the walls around it. The picture of the mold is from a Water Heater that was leaking for quite some time in a closet that backed up too many other rooms. The result of this water heater leak not being discovered for quite some time is many rooms had water damage and mold.
Never ignore any Water Heater leaks, even a very small amount of water can cause a lot of damage over time.
If you ever find your Water Heater has been leaking and caused damages, call us. We know just how to repair and prevent any more damages from happening.
