Sump Pump Failure Leads to Mold Growth
Accompanying the transition into summer weather is normally an influx of heavy periods of rain. This rain can come down heavily in such a manner than some sump pumps cannot keep up. When a sump pump failure occurs, the excess water has nowhere to escape, and it will normally end up seeping into someone's home or accumulating in a basement area. If a water damage is not found immediately, it can lead to a larger, costly situation. In this case, the water damage was left long enough that mold started to grow up the baseboards of the damaged room. The affected areas on the walls needed to be removed, so that the area behind them could be dried out properly to ensure no further growth in the future.
