Aquarium Leak Causes Major Water Damage
The tenant in this Huntsville rental home had a 250 gallon saltwater aquarium. There was a leak in the seal and an estimated 175 gallons leaked out. When we got the call for mitigation, it had been almost two weeks since the leak happened.
Of course, the water had spread throughout several rooms of the home. Closets, a bedroom, living room, sitting room, two hallways, and the crawlspace were all affected by this loss. There were also many different types of flooring in the affected rooms: carpet with pad, laminate, hardwood and parquet flooring. The crawlspace also had visible signs of mold growth.
Our crew communicated the job details to the insurance company and the decision was made to remove the affected flooring in this room.
