Water and Mold damage from leaky toilet

Repairing a leaky toilet is often simply a matter of tightening a connection between the water line and the toiletís water tank, a minor issue. The water damage resulting from a simple toilet leak on the other end can be catastrophic.

This West Boca condo located on the 5th floor had been empty for a while when the water line connected to the one of the toilets started leaking and eventually completely flooded the apartment. Since no one was living in the condo, no one was there to stop the water leak and water started pouring down the floors below.

The water kept leaking for 4 days at which time the water damage created by the leaky toilet started being noticeable in the lobby of the building. After a quick investigation, the condo owners realized that it was that 5th floor unit which was the point of origin for the flood.

RightNow Cleaning & Restoration was called to remove the flood waters from all apartments affected, as well as to remove the mold which had started growing along the path of the water damage.
