Moisture travels into walls

Drywall Demo Moist, affected drywall removal in progress

In this small business, they arrived to work to see the floors flooded after a 3 day weekend of being closed.

SERVPRO was called and was on site within 35 minutes, and the visible water from this leak was extracted within a short period of time so that she could open her doors for business.

SERVPRO returned daily to detect moisture and her walls were testing very high in moisture. She didn't want to have a demolition done as it was going to distract her ability to run business.

The testing showed high for 3 days so SERVPRO explained to her that doing a dry out was not going to be sufficient and mold will be unhealthy for her and the customers as well as the building. Her business insurance was involved by then and required further work be done to avoid mold growth.

SERVPRO, being a Construction Remodeling & Repairs team as well...

Was able to remove drywall, further dry out, do appropriate mold testing, and replace the drywall and re-textured her wall, then re-painted so her business could resume within 6 days.

When dry outs are done correctly, there are no further concerns of mold.
