Leaking Shower Pan Causes Mold Outbreak in Serra Mesa Home?

5/2/2023 (Permalink)

A person taking a shower has no idea their shower pan has a leak. We mitigate and restore mold damage in San Diego homes and businesses.

Our local Mission Valley East team has been remediating water-related mold damage for many years in Serra Mesa. According to a study done by the Insurance Institute of Business and Home Safety (IBHS), over half of the shower stall water damage incidents were related to a faulty shower pan. So, if you have a faulty shower pan, you may have hidden water and mold damage. Here are some loss prevention and maintenance tips for showers from the IBHS:

Inspect tile and grout every six months, paying attention to loose or cracked tiles or cracked and crumbling grout lines. Repair as needed.

Test the shower pan annually by:

  1. Blocking the drain
  2. Fill the shower stall with about one inch of water
  3. Use a pencil to mark the waterline
  4. Leave the water standing in the shower pan for 8 hours
  5. If the water level decreases, contact a plumbing professional
