Sewer Leak in Ceiling Leads to Bigger Problems for Rancho Bernardo Family

Rancho Bernardo is a Beautiful part of the City of San Diego. Not to close to the windy beaches, not too far inland, it is one of the most perfect places to live. However, water damage can appear even in the most beautiful of places. 
This Rancho Bernardo family didn't even know that they had the sewer leak and mold forming in their ceiling, walls and kitchen until an obvious supply line leak made them call us. When we opened the ceiling, we saw that they not only had the supply line leak from the hot water line but a sewer leak as well. As a result of these problems, they now had an excess of mold in the flooring and walls.

When we were called about a supply line leak, we sent our plumber over too find the supply line leak and remove it. While eliminating the leak, he noticed that there was also a sewer leak coming from the same upstairs neighbors the supply line leak had come from. After being notified of this, we wanted to investigate further to see if there were any more issues.

 In all, there was a ceiling bow, sewer leak in ceiling, supply leak from the hot water line, and lots of mold. The mold was a result from the moisture of both leaks. There were many more problems than first assumed but we were up for the job.

To start, we used containment protocol to section off the kitchen from the rest of the house with plastic so the mold spores didn't spread. Then, we removed the hole in the sewer line by getting into the kitchen ceiling, taking out the piece of piping that had a hole in it and putting in a new piece.

 Next, we dehumidified the kitchen and extracted the mold. Finally, we removed the drywall that had bowed, and examined the ceiling there. There were no further problems, so we patched the hole in the drywall with a new piece of drywall where the ceiling bow had been.
