Walls that are affected from above or below them can be easily damaged from water. In order to properly remediate the situation, our Inspectors use meters to determine the moisture levels. Once the excess water has been removed, the floors and walls may appear dry, but a quick inspection will reveal they are wet to the touch. Nearly all building materials, like wood, drywall, and flooring materials, are porous and therefore retain water. This retained water can cause the materials to break down, warp, or cause mold damage. We work to remove or vent the walls in order to make it "Like it never even happened."
