Water Damage and Advanced Drying Techniques
Remove Baseboards and Drill Holes in Drywall
The primary ingredient in drywall is generally gypsum, which will absorb water like a sponge. Even if you only have a few inches of standing water, the drywall can absorb water well up into the walls, where you won't notice it until the drywall dries and warps. To avoid water damage, it is important for air to circulate up into the walls for proper drying. By drilling large holes in the drywall behind the baseboards, the holes will be covered when you replace the baseboards.
When engaging in flood mitigation and water damage cleanup, speed is of the utmost importance. The faster standing water is extracted and warm air is circulating, the less likely you are to experience long-term damage in your home or office.
