Dry Out

It's important to know how to dry out wall after water damage. It's not an easy thing to do but it is critical. Water damage that is left unattended can lead to costly and dangerous structural damage and to harmful mold and mildew growth. Unfortunately, water damage can happen easily. Old homes may have leaky pipes or cracked tiles in the bathroom. Even in new homes, extreme temperatures can cause pipes to burst and flood an interior.


Steps for Drying Out a Wall

Natural ventilation is one alternative for drying out a wall. It is definitely the least expensive, assuming you don't run into problems. However this method is time consuming and mold is a fast growing organism that can spread while you wait for the walls to dry. If you do choose to dry the walls naturally, follow these steps:

Turn off the water source immediately.
Remove wall hangings and paintings. If the walls are papered, you will most likely need to remove the paper and repaper when the walls are dry.
Check any wall or ceiling insulation. Start removing and drying the insulation from the ceiling down to the floor. You may need to dispose of insulation if it is soaked.
Remove molding and baseboards. To properly dry out a wall, you need to remove any molding at the top of the wall and baseboards at the floor. Otherwise, the walls won't have proper ventilation and moisture can remain trapped behind the baseboard and molding.
Get plenty of ventilation. Open windows and doors and blow fans on the wet area until the walls are dry. Just be careful about plugging in electrical appliances near water. Also run the air conditioner in the summer.

Dealing With the Water Damage

You many need to consult a professional if your walls are badly damaged. Professional water removal specialists have large, high power fans that can quickly dry the wall and prevent further damage. You may also need a plumber if your water damage was caused by faulty or broken pipes. Plumbers can handle septic systems and difficult projects that require a licensed professional. If the water damage is extensive, be sure to check with your local officials about necessary permits and building codes.


Rapid Structural Drying

You never know when water damage could strike your home or business. All it takes is a pipe leak, a backed up sink or toilet, a leaky water appliance, or an ice dam on the roof. Regardless of the cause, you need rapid structural drying to help get your home or business routine back to normal with minimal time and money put into the restoration process.


What is Rapid Structural Drying?

In the past, water damage meant removing and disposing of belongings. It meant tearing out carpet and padding and removing sections of the wall to pinpoint moisture pockets and structural damage. The process was time consuming, expensive, and did little to prevent subsequent damage and harmful mold growth.
