Dishwasher problems in Malvern

Mold behind dishwasher

A dishwasher leak can go unnoticed for a long time; in this case it was about 6 months.  When the plumber arrived to pull out the dishwasher this is what he found.  An unknown amount of mold growth behind the dishwasher and the adjacent cabinets.  

SERVPRO of The Main Line was then called in to address the situation.  Every mold job is first scoped by an experienced project manager to determine the best course of action for remediation that will create the smallest disturbance to the daily lives of the residents.  In this case, part of the kitchen had to be removed to address the mold in full. 

A full containment barrier with negative air pressure was setup to prevent mold spores from traveling into different parts of the home; granite counter tops were removed (without breaking); cabinets were unscrewed and set in the garage for safe keeping; all moldy drywall, insulation, and flooring were removed.  The entire area was thoroughly cleaned by HEPA vacuuming and wet cleaning with anti-microbial.  Job is ready for the repair team!
