I'm renovating my basement bathroom and feel over my head as maybe this is a bigger problem. First time home owner. What professionals should I hire to assess/fix this issue? Please be specific because I'm new to this, much appreciated. Understanding this is a diy forum, what do you consider when deciding to involve pros on damage like this?
What I did: Moved into this home a year ago, haven't used this bathroom. Getting around to renovating and saw water damaged baseboards. Tore them off, some mold (dark green, black dusty) on the drywall. Cut off the sections while sponging/brushing with bleach solution. Cleaned up the area. Removed insulation. Scrubbed mold off the left side of that first pic.
What I'm seeing: left side of the first pic, load bearing wall, baseplate seems solid with no visible rot. The bottom part of the stud (about 1 foot) has visible rot. Right side no visible rot. Mold seemed limited to that small section.
First pic: 1 main area of damage. 2 Rotting section. Also the black on tile floor seems to just be glue
Second pic: Close up of worst section, load bearing (I think).
