Locate and mark wet areas on walls
After the source has stopped leaking water, we’ll identify affected areas to target.
Remove wet insulation
Moist insulation can present a health risk. To eliminate the possibility of mold, bacteria, and other pathogens, we’ll remove all wet insulation.
Install state-of-the-art drying equipment
Next, technicians will also use heavy-duty fans, dehumidifiers, and other equipment to help remove moisture from the walls and air.
Use a meter to monitor moisture
Power Dry professionals use tools like moisture meters and infrared imaging devices. This technology ensures the walls are completely dry.
What Are the Signs of Drywall Water Damage?
From spots of discoloration to cracked paint, there are several signs of water-damaged walls:
Yellow-brown stains normally mean a slow or inconsistent leak. These stains normally radiate out from a central point, with the darkest area in the center.
Walls may look darker, but they can be lighter depending on the paint color.
Over time, water will cause paint or wallpaper to chip, flake, or peel.
Ballooning wallpaper or paint happens when the water soaks through from behind the drywall.
Sagging or Crumbling Walls
Larger amounts of water will cause walls to sag, buckle or even crumble. In most cases, replacing the drywall is the only option.
