Basement Plumbing Problems

By • Jun 18th, 2008 • Category: Home

If you haven’t already heard me or Laura say it on twitter, we are currently working on fixing our laundry room because we are having issues with the plumbing.

We went to Overland Park for Father’s Day but first found out our washing machine leaked everywhere the night before. Last night we discovered the leak was actually coming from the drain pipe in the wall rather than the washer, so we tore out some paneling and floor tile only to discover there was also black mold growing there too.

This is the first time we’ve ever had an issue with our plumbing, but by the looks of it the previous owners did too. I removed most of the mold and am waiting for bleach to kill the rest. Tonight we bought an auger and tried to fix the clogged pipe ourselves but had no luck, so I will be calling a plumber tomorrow during my lunch break.

Luckily so far Kaden hasn’t complained any about the mold. Here’s some pictures Laura took of him Monday. We bought his nice outfit at Goodwill.
