This month one of our customers is dealing with one of our top 5 worst offenders when it comes to causes of water damage.  Most refrigerators come with plastic water supply lines that hook up to the wall.  We highly encourage everyone to replace this line with a copper one that can be purchased at any hardware store such as Home Depot or Lowe's. 

Often there is no warning that damage is happening until the flooring begins buckling or walls become soft.  Luckily, in this case we were able to catch the damage early.  It was necessary to remove the floating laminate floor drill holes in the cabinet toe-kicks to allow for air circulation under the cabinets. But, the homeowner isn't always so lucky to catching early. We have done jobs where the fridge leaks for a long time, saturates the drywall and the walls begin to mold behind cabinets. 

After, we are finished with the drying we apply an anti-microbial agent to discourage mold growth.

"Like it never even happened."
