Water Damaged Walls

Water Damaged Walls

When a home is flooded, most people’s first concern is the potential damage that can be done to floors and other low-lying objects. However, walls are also vulnerable to the effects of flooding, particularly because of the porous nature of most wall-building materials, which can allow water to wick up walls well above the water level. Fortunately, with a quick response, water damaged walls can often be repaired.

If you or someone you know experiences water damage in your home, it is vital that you contact a professional water extraction service immediately. If untreated, water damage can quickly cause significant, sometimes irreparable damage to homes and other property.

Drying Water Damaged Walls

Depending on the circumstances, water damaged walls can be treated in a number of ways. The following are some of the most common:

  • Drying with High Capacity Air Movers
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Making small holes in the wall and baseboards

Unfortunately, walls with plastic or foil inner linings cannot typically be saved from water damage, and must be removed to prevent dangerous mold growth.
