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.

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.
