When it Rains, It Pours... Literally - Scottsdale 85255
An apartment complex in Scottsdale, Arizona experienced a strange phenomenon of water heaters leaking one right after the other. The water heater closets at this apartment complex couple as extra storage space for the tenants, often times not being accessed for long periods of time.
When multiple tenants started to complain their water was not heating up as quickly or not at all, the Property Manager knew something was awry.
In each of the rooms inspected, the drywall was wet and mold (pictured) had begun to form.
We (SERVPRO of Paradise Valley) jumped into action, performed Mold Remediation by removing the drywall and inspecting the studs/inside of the walls to make sure there wasn’t a hidden mold issue behind the drywall.
Thankfully the mold stayed on the exterior of the wall (mold spores could have been throughout, so we hepa vaccuumed the studs and the interior of the drywall on the other side to make the area as clean as possible). The Property Manager was extremely happy with our work and even called us out the very next week for a separate issue!
