    Default Drilled holes along baseboard

    Did a foreclosure today, all along bottom of sheetrock the baseboards were removed and about every 8 inches was a 3/4" drilled hole just through the sheetrock. The home had undergone foundation leveling (slab), and had also been flooded by a plumbing leak. Anyone know what the holes are for , termite treatment, mold abatement, part of leveling process?

    Eric,

    I would guess that those holes were drilled into the wall for ventilation after the flood you mentioned.

    A restoration company did this same thing to our salon a fews years ago after a neighbor in the building had a water heater leak.

    They placed fans and moisture removal equipment in the salon for like a week to help removed the moisture from within the wall cavities.
