Wet Ceilings from a Storm Can Cause Mold
When this year’s ‘June Gloom’ hit Ontario, California, our office did not get anything short of flooding and ceiling leaks. This was no different for this home nestled in the downtown area who suffered water leaks throughout the edges of the ceiling. When the technicians assessed the damage with moisture meters, they checked throughout the living room to see if they could save any of it. Unfortunately, it all had to come out to avoid any mold growth.
Looking at the after picture, removing all the ceiling was a good choice in the long run. It made it free of water damage, mildew smells and any chance of mold growing from this incident. We dried the ceiling completely before beginning reconstruction to it with air movers. If you happen to see any wet areas in your ceiling, trust the experts and give us a call to inspect it for you.
