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!
