Home Renovations Gone Wrong

Plumbing drain tube with drill holes in it This is the plumbing drain tube that was causing the water leak causing moisture to be detected in the drywall.

This homeowner was doing renovations in her laundry room when she discovered some water damage in the laundry room but didn't know where the water was exactly coming from. She contacted our office in hopes that we could help her out.

Upon arrival, our crew chief took moisture readings and detected moisture on/behind the wall. The technician removed the baseboards, drilled holes in the baseboard line, and set up drying equipment. The technician did some investigating and was able to find the possible source of the leak. The cabinet that was installed above the washer and dryer was right where a plumbing supply would be. So the technician asked the homeowner for approval to remove the cabinet and tear out some drywall. He assured her that if he was wrong that we would repatch the drywall at no cost to her. 

Upon removing the cabinet and piece of drywall there was the source. A drain tube with multiple drill holes in it from where the cabinets were screwed into the wall. The homeowner was so thankful to have our technician be so thorough. We left the equipment onsite for 2 days to allow for the structure to dry properly.
