Hampstead SERVPRO Water Cleanup for Structures

Home plumbing concerns can crop up suddenly and create increased expenses for homeowners. These disasters can lead to increased water bills, damaged walls and framing, and potential mold growth, which can cause health effects. Proactive, emergency-response cleaning can save property owners hundreds to thousands of dollars while keeping occupants safe.

SERVPRO water damage restoration can restore Hampstead homes to a sanitary condition with EPA-registered biocides and commercial-grade tools. This firm also performs rebuilding services that include drywall repair, baseboard reinstallation, and repainting after mitigation.

How SERVPRO Restores Wet Drywall and Baseboards 

SERVPRO technicians can often save water damaged drywall and baseboards after disaster strikes. While some materials are not salvageable, others are restorable to a pre-disaster state.

Crew members can use the following strategies to restore structural materials while saving homeowners on repair and replacement costs incurred by water disasters. 

  • Cutting out small portions of wet drywall or drilling small weep holes into it, forcing air into wall cavities with axial, centrifugal, or low-profile air movers and tubing designed for this type of drying
  • Removing wet baseboards and manually cleaning or spraying them with OSHA-approved biocides before implementing extraction and drying tools. In cases where baseboards are not salvageable, technicians can install replacements after drying is complete 
  • Drying typically entails the use of air movers and dehumidifiers together. Positioning for these items is critical: air movers generally are set at 45 to 90-degree angles along the perimeter of the impacted area every 150 to 300 square feet, or less in more serious water scenarios
