Removing Drywall After Water Damage
Not all building materials can be saved when they get wet. Our technicians are trained to determine which building materials can be dried and which building materials need to be removed. On this particular job, the drywall needs to be removed to access the area behind the shower.
In the photo, you can see that the technician has put plastic down to protect the flooring. The technician has measured and marked the drywall so that there will be an even cut. The drywall is being removed at 24.5" from the ground to make repairs easier.
After removing the drywall, the technician will also remove and bag any affected insulation. Then he will apply an antimicrobial agent to kill any bacteria that came in with the water.
