When you call a professional to clean and repair flood damage present in your Mendham area home, you might think that removing water and cleaning the area sounds easy. However, each situation comes with unique challenges that your technicians work hard to overcome. As a homeowner, it helps to learn as much as possible and maintain expectations as restoration progresses in your home.
The type of paint used during the construction of your home plays a significant role in how your Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) from SERVPRO handle your situation. Flat paint allows water vapor to pass through more readily than a semi-gloss, which makes flat paint dry quicker. Drying floors and walls under or behind cabinetry can take more time, simply because of the existence of multiple layers (cabinet backing and drywall).
If your cabinetry does not have a back layer, SERVPRO technicians can drill holes into your wall, which allows air circulation within the wall cavity. However, if the cabinet has a backing installed, it extends drying time, even if the homeowner allows a technician to place holes in the backing. Often, cabinets have laminated surfaces that act as a vapor barrier, providing technicians with false readings.
Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASD) from SERVPRO looking to ensure restoration of structural components have multiple drying methods at their fingertips. Since vinyl wall coverings, such as wallpaper, act as a vapor barrier, trapping water within your walls, you have a decision to make. You can either remove your wallpaper or ask technicians to remove base molding and drill holes, using air movers, to force air into the wall cavity without damaging the existing material.
