The Effects of Water Damage on Your Colorado Springs Home's Walls
SERVPRO's Quick Response to Water Damage in Your Home can Often PREVENT Any Secondary Damage
If water damage of any kind has occurred in your home, it is important to take action as soon as possible. When it comes to plaster and drywall becoming wet, some problems arise. Mold growth can begin, framing wood splits and swells, and the structural integrity of your home weakens. Even if you see just minor bubbling, spots, or peeling, you want to move fast, so the problem does not become much larger.
When you need water removal in your Colorado Springs home, no wall is safe from damages that can occur if they got wet during the disaster. In particular, drywall is at risk to weaken and even collapse. It also many times needs to be replaced, as it is not always repairable. The structure around drywall can also be affected in cases where the damage is severe.
SERVPRO, a professional water removal and restoration company, is always standing by to help when you need. In a situation that involves water, we understand that time is of the essence and arrive at your home quickly so we can assess the damages and begin cleanup right away.
Water ruins plaster as well. It is not resistant to dampness and therefore is easily affected. It is fortunately easy to remove and replace when needed. In areas of your home such as the bathroom, tile walls should be used whenever possible.
At SERVPRO, we also check any brickwork in your home for signs of water damage. If it has not been correctly sealed, the porous cement used can absorb excess water and start crumbling. If it has been compromised, we extract the water before we repair it.
To extract the water from the various surfaces and walls, we bring in industrial strength equipment including truck-mounted pumps, dehumidifiers, moisture meters to find hidden water in your walls, and fans. We take care after the standing water is out to place the equipment around the affected areas to ensure optimal drying time.
SERVPRO of South Colorado Springs is experienced in finding hidden water damage inside walls. If your home has suffered from a water disaster, contact us right away at (719) 574-2789 so we can extract the water and thoroughly dry and repair your home.
