Reasons Why Controlled Demolition Is Vital to Property Repair

If the water emergency feels overwhelming already, a recommendation by SERVPRO experts to drill holes or tear out sections of building materials might be distressing. Understanding the purpose underlying controlled demolition helps ease concerns. Water often seeps into building cavities, and we must find ways to access the fluids for removal. Carefully removing baseboards to drill “weep holes” for water release or cutting out sections of drywall several inches above the waterline provides needed access.

Removal of Damaged Sheetrock
Controlled demolition often makes properties look worse but speeds the drying process and removes harmful contaminants from the property, minimizing damages. When water enters a structure, sheetrock readily wicks the moisture, and as it travels upward through the core, the sheetrock buckles, and warps. Technicians perform flood cuts by measuring above the highest area wicked into and cleanly cut it away.
