Consult With Our Dry Out Experts For An Honest and Reliable Written Estimate.
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 buildings may have leaky pipes or cracked tiles in the bathroom. Even in new buildings, extreme temperatures can cause pipes to burst and flood an interior.
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:
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.
You never know when water damage could strike your property. 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 property routine back to normal with minimal time and money put into the restoration process.
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.
