    Resealing Cage Cracks Mold Question, thanks!

    I noticed my white AP cage was leaking last week and Iím very sure itís been leaking for a while, but I didnít notice until I saw the cracks along the base was yellow. We resealed the cage today with Lexel, but should I have removed the original Lexel sealant to take off the bottom piece of the cage to check for mold? There is another AP cage that this leaking cage was sitting on top of, so I did find a small amount of green color on the middle part on the ceiling of bottom cage where a small bit of water flowed to and dried. My friend who also fixes homes for a living, said that there shouldnít be mold in the pvc cracks, since the leaking water flows out of the cracks. I did notice a small area of brownish color on the bottom edge of the leaking cage, towards one of the back corners. That brownish spot was about 1 inch long. Could that possibly be mold or more likely dirty brown water that leaked out and dried? My friend said that isnít mold since it is brown color. Sorry for the long post. I never hear about people suggesting to remove the cage bottom to check for mold if thereís a leak, before resealing so donít know if Iím overthinking this? Thanks a lot for any help!
