On February 19, 2019, Texas Gulf Coast was called regarding a customer’s concern about Mold in their guest bathroom.  Rytech was at the customers’ house within four hours of being called.

We helped the customer determine that there was still and active leaky pipe causing the moisture and the mold.  We also located mold growth on the back of the bedroom wall.

The leaky pipe was fixed and we immediate began to remove the mold and moisture around the damaged drywall and cabinets.  All safety measures for mold were followed and our work was quickly completed. 

We ran a portable professional grade high capacity dehumidifier for  4 days to ensure all remaining moisture was removed from the floor and walls.  Complete moisture removal was completed in 4 days.

As our customer was having his pool redone, a worker noticed water running down the foundation of the house.  After some investigation, it was determined that the shower pan in their master bath was not installed properly.  They were unsure if there was any damage in the shower against the closet door or just sheetrock and tile damage.  Rytech arrived within hours of the call and determined minimal mold growth, but wall framing was completely saturated. 

We removed the damaged drywall from the master bath and ground floor kitchen ceiling and set up containment to assist with the dryout.  After running a professional grade dehumidifier for 3 days and 19 hours, all moisture was removed from the damaged area.

It was a good thing the pool guy noticed the waterfall on the foundation or the damage could have been much worse!
