The Degradation Of Saturated Drywall In Flossmoor Homes

Water loss incidents can have a disastrous effect on certain materials in your Flossmoor home over others. While there are many construction elements and structural components that can fall victim to saturation, none are as absorbent and easily destroyed as drywall. With the common use of this material in the construction of walls, it is imperative to respond to water loss incidents quickly to protect this porous material when possible. With the right response from our certified Water Restoration and Applied Structural Drying Technicians, we can work to protect affected drywall and prevent unnecessary tear out and reconstruction.

Our professionals have extensive training in the effects of water damage in Flossmoor on many materials common to home construction. We know how long materials take on average to erode beyond repair and what must get done quickly to protect these structural components from costlier tear out and build back later. Our SERVPRO team can begin the assessment and inspection of your property from our initial arrival, which can isolate areas of your home that have gotten more substantially affected by spreading water loss effects.

To determine the condition and saturation of materials like drywall, our SERVPRO team arrives with devices and machines that can identify moisture pockets and dampness both in and behind damaged materials. Once these symptoms have gotten addressed, we can install and run high-velocity air movers and our InjectiDry System to dry out these areas and materials before too much degradation has occurred.

With constant exposure to standing water or excessive moisture, drywall can degrade and distort irreparably in as little as one day. When these materials become affected by a water loss incident, it is important to get the right professionals at your home quickly to begin work on preserving its construction.

Drywall is a common staple in the construction of homes throughout our area, and one of the first affected components of your house when water loss incidents occur. Protect your investment and these materials by reaching out to our SERVPRO of Matteson-Homewood rapid response team quickly. Give us a call 24/7 at (708) 747-9925.
