Well...new house, different leak, same jet engine. Late last night we finally located the source of the moldy smell that I had been picking up on. And in a rather disgusting way. Let's just say you don't ever want to see mushrooms growing in your carpet. We've spent today trying to find the company that could help us to remediate and restore. Oilburner spent half the day trying to find the source of the leak, to no avail. Same with the team that was sent out. No clue. No roofline, no spigot, no water pipes. So now we have the carpet partially ripped up, the dehumidifier in the room, and just waiting until they can start pulling the lovely wood paneling down to see the exact extent of the water damage, the extent of the "growth", and determine if we can actually figure out the source of the water. Sigh.
The darker wood is "wet"
The darker wood is "wet". It was detectably getting worse throughout the day, and slowly improving with the dehu.
