Drywall Water Damage Repair in Helena Homes
SERVPRO Restores the Interior Condition of Your Helena Home
In the event of moisture intrusion in your Helena home, it is highly likely to affect drywall surfaces. Water damage worsens as time passes and creates the ideal conditions for mold growth. You must rapidly extract excess moisture in a structure to prevent the drywall from encouraging mold growth and experiencing severe structural harm.
The period it takes to repair water damage in your Helena home can vary. Factors such as affected materials and areas significantly impact the restoration timeline. For example, a small home damaged by a substantial amount of water may take longer to restore than a large house with only minor moisture damage. Larger areas may require longer drying times. Regardless of the size, specific protocols are necessary to restore your home’s interior quality completely. That is why having a company such as SERVPRO perform restoration eases the process for you.
Other variables that determine how long the process may take:
- How long has the water been in contact with the property
- The volume of water inside the house
- Whether the water leaks impacted building materials
- Whether the water is contaminated
Factors Affecting Drywall’s Drying Time
In some situations, drywall can dry out on its own, but this may take longer, and you would want to avoid risking the chances of dealing with mold.
Factors determining drying time:
- Extent of damage
- Drying method
- Moisture barriers on the wall
Wet drywall would dry slower the more moisture it has absorbed. By using drying methods and equipment such as dehumidifiers, air filtration devices, and structural drying cavity equipment, SERVPRO crews can speed up the drying process.
