Containment Is Important During Water Damage Restoration

SERVPRO of East Windsor often uses containment barriers when restoring homes and businesses after a water damage event. Containment is crucial because it enables the crew to control the environment and gain maximum drying efficiency for the damaged areas, while limiting the spread of moisture and other contaminants. When we block off an area of an affected property using professional plastic barriers, we can reduce the drying time for that space, use less equipment and dry out this New Jersey home faster, saving time and money.

Why Does SERVPRO cut out damaged drywall

Flood cuts are a necessary step in the restoration process when drywall has been badly damaged by water. When a water restoration contractor cut out portions of damaged drywall to avoid continued damage to the structure it’s called a flood cut. Depending on the type of water, length of damage and amount of water different methods of flood cutting can take place. Typically, the cut is made 12-18 inches above where the flood damage stopped, so that we can remove the damaged drywall and address any moisture issues behind the wall and avoid secondary damages like mold.
