Potential Mold Growth in Cabinets

Shortly after washing dishes, tenants noticed a major water leak under the sink. Any type of leak should be addressed quickly.

If ignored, leaks can lead to bigger issues, such as mold damage and structural damage.

Shut-Off Valve Causes Water Damage

The shut-off valve in the kitchen sink began to leak, causing water damage to the interior of the cabinet and the kitchen unit below. The water seeped into the material, which could lead to microbial growth if not attended to quickly.

Water Damage Repair Services Throughout Chicago, IL

Rescue Restoration installed air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out the affected areas and begin the restoration process.

The cabinets were thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to prevent microbial growth, and no refinishing or replacing was necessary for the unit below! The drying process took an extra day because the ceiling and walls were made of plaster, which takes longer to dry. The tenants were thrilled with the fantastic job done by our professionals.
