Water Restoration Fort Worth – Removing Damaged Walls

9/15/2019 (Permalink)

Drywall cut from a wall, and flooring pulled back from the wall as well as a vacuum in the room. SERVPRO has the tips and tools to assist your Fort Worth water damage.

We can help you through your water damage in Fort Worth.

Restoration of water damaged materials can vary a great deal depending on the type of water, the amount of water, and the length of exposure. Some situations may require de-sanitation of the entire premises. Specific rooms may require drying and dehumidification. Usually, drywall that is exposed must be replaced at least above the waterline.

SERVPRO provides restoration services for all types of water damage in Fort Worth. The first step is the assessment of the situation by our crew chief. Depending on the circumstances, he or she can arrange for deployment of the appropriate equipment and technicians to restore your home. This step includes pump mounted extractors for large amounts of water as well as submersibles. Removal of debris, and damaged unrecoverable materials for disposal.

Water Extraction from Carpets

Truck-mounted pump or portable extractors can be used to remove moisture from the carpets and underpad in clean water situations. If the water is contaminated, the flooring usually must be removed. The application of dehumidifiers in a negative pressure application can bring moisture levels down to acceptable levels. Negative pressure is used to exhaust moist air outside the home and draw dry air into the home from outside.

Removal of Baseboards and Walls

Water can easily penetrate drywall and seep under baseboards. Drywall exposed to water often expands and crumbles. If there is a limited amount of water in the room, remove the baseboards. Also the damaged drywall above the waterline. For high water levels, the entire damaged wall may be removed to facilitate drying of the structure before restoration.

By exposing this area, SERVPRO can also apply drying techniques to these areas using water extractors, air movers, and dehumidifiers. We do not want to leave any pockets of moisture that can trigger mold growth later.
