Slow leaks can sometimes be hard to catch. Ongoing issues can sometimes lead to mold growth.
The recommended remediation process is to remove affected drywall and sometimes flooring before drying can begin. It is nearly impossible to clean the paper face of the affected drywall without destroying the material in the process.
In the case of this picture, a slow leaking washing machine caused mold to grow on the surrounding drywall. Luckily these homeowners called us and we had it all cleaned up and drying out in no time.
