Preserving Water-Damaged Drywall in Ocoee Homes

Water disasters can affect your Ocoee home in several different ways. While ultimately you want professionals that can help you to overcome all of these potential effects, there is an order of importance to restoring the property to protect as many at-risk materials as possible. Our franchise has the trained technicians able to diagnose potential problems with exposed materials and utilize our equipment to dry out this damage before it becomes too challenging to salvage.

Drywall is especially susceptible to the spread and saturation of water damages in your Ocoee home. Taking care of these materials quickly can help to greatly reduce necessary removals and make the reconstruction phase of the restoration process more efficient and streamlined. With drywall being a porous material, it can easily absorb water when the material becomes exposed, which starts to saturate the walls immediately. The longer this problem persists, the more dramatic these effects become until our SERVPRO professionals not only have to remove the material but contend with the possibility of secondary effects like mold growth as well.

One of the initial phases of our inspection and mitigation process is to determine the moisture content inside of and behind the walls of your home. We use moisture detection equipment like our thermal imagery cameras to determine moisture pockets that require attention. This same equipment can help to note how widespread the saturation is from the base of the wall up towards the ceiling. We mark out the dry line and often cut out all of the oversaturated drywall beneath this point to replace it with fresh, new material. Our SERVPRO professionals then have better access to dry out the newly exposed wall cavities with our high-powered air movers and dehumidification equipment.

Drywall is often one of the first materials to take the worst of the potential damages from a water incident occurring on your property. You can help to preserve most of these damaged elements by reaching out to our SERVPRO of West Orange rapid response team as soon as disaster strikes. Give us a call today at (407) 352-1569.
