Drywall Water Damage Clean Up in North Tampa
Did you know that if your drywall is exposed to water for less than 2 hours in a sanitary water intrusion that we may be able to save it? Time is of the essence with water damage. After a couple of hours subjected to water, drywall will begin to saturate. Since drywall is porous, having water enter it makes it heavy and begins to bulge or fall. The ceiling drywall integrity on the other hand can be worse so we will evaluate that immediately.
Depending on the extent of the water damage we will try to save as much as possible, cutting out the damaged pieces. In the situation of unsanitary water intrusion, such as a toilet overflow we recommend that we remove all the drywall from the floor up to 18 inches.
Some older homes are made with plaster which can hold up better in a water damage situation but it takes much longer to dry out.
At We Clean Up Water Damage we also realize the integrity of a structure is the most important so if we feel that is a problem we will let you know immediately. Either way, our Certified Technicians will have you in good hands and give you the best advice and care for your home.
