Even a small water leak - under the kitchen sink, behind the shower or behind a wall - can cause major damage to your home, if left untreated. When plumbing pipes running behind walls burst or begin to leak, they can cause moisture to build up. Eventually, this moisture makes its way through the walls and produces wet spots, a musty smell and even mold! If you notice persistent wet stains or a musty smell in your home, you may have a leak. A professional company like BioSweep Southeast can detect the leak, fix the problem and remove and replace the drywall. If the moisture has caused mold to grow in that area - don't worry! BioSweep Southeast has certified technicians that can safely eliminate the mold and stop it from spreading to other areas of your home.
Water leaks are sometimes not obvious at first. Sometimes, a plumbing leak in your crawlspace or behind a wall can go unnoticed for an extended period of time.

Our team of technicians is trained to detect plumbing leaks using non-invasive procedures and advanced technology to detect the SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM and minimize the amount of construction material that needs to be removed - thus saving you thousands of dollars!

Mildew: do you have a musty or mildew odor in your home? Do see any mold growing on your walls, ceiling or floor? Does the mold keep reappearing after cleaning?
