Upon initial inspection, brown spots were apparent on the ceiling tiles. There was a noticeable odor as well.
When the tile was removed, mold growth in the drywall was observed.
The mold growth was extensive throughout the ceiling and along the outside wall.
In one particular area, the water intrusion was extensive enough that the drywall and tape had fallen down and mold was observed in the insulation.
Upon cutting into the wall, mold growth was observed in the perimeter wall.
Here is the close up of the mold growth.
The wood subfloor also had extensive mold growth present and the wood was spongy and unable to bear a load properly.
Each area that included water intrusion damage and mold growth was carefully documented and remediated.
During the remediation process, the drywall on the perimeter walls was removed until only completely dry, uncontaminated drywall was left.
After the mold was remediated and the Waterguard system was installed, the drywall was replaced.
The entire area was cleaned and wiped down.
The installation team completely cleaned up and removed any contaminated materials to be disposed of properly.
The ceiling tiles were replaced.
The area no longer smells damp or moldy and the Sanidry dehumidifier was set up to keep the relative humidity low.
