Leaking Supply Line Causes Mold Outbreak in Macomb Township?

5/23/2023 (Permalink)

A person discovers mold growing on a wall in a laundry room. We are leaders in mold damage restoration services in Macomb County.

When you notice a strong, musty odor in your home in Macomb Township, you probably have a mold problem. Our local Northeast Macomb Township team is trained and certified to restore mold damage. Often, mold outbreaks are the result of a water leak. We will address any water leak issues as part of the mold remediation process to minimize the potential for the mold to return once the remediation process is complete.

By routinely inspecting your appliance supply lines, you may prevent mold damage. The Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety offers these helpful tips for maintaining your appliance supply lines:

  • Look for signs the supply hose may be ready to fail—blisters in the hose, worn tubing, stress cracks, or a loose connection
  • Replace the supply hose with a reinforced steel braided hose if it shows any sign of wear
  • Tighten the connection if it feels loose. The most common site of failure is near the connection where the hose bends.
  • Replace supply hoses every five years, even if there is no obvious deterioration or wear. Some signs of deterioration may occur from the inside out and may not be visible until it is too late.
  • When replacing washing machine supply hoses, always choose a reinforced steel braided hose over the traditional un-reinforced rubber hose. These hoses will last longer and are far less likely to result in catastrophic water loss.
