Treating Upstairs Laundry Room Water Damage in Killingly
In the Before Photo of this Killingly home, an upstairs laundry room leak created first-floor ceiling water damage. The sheetrock has visible water stains that may indicate much more damage hidden behind sheetrock. Without professional inspection and remediation from water restoration companies like SERVPRO, this damage can create mold and structural integrity concerns that are challenging for homeowners to fix on their own.
The After Photo showcases how controlled demolition of damaged material can minimize repair needs for water damage. Cutting away this amount of drywall allows for better access to wet ceiling joists and pipes. SERVPRO technicians can position air movers and dehumidifiers to efficiently dry ceiling cavities. Once the ceiling is dried to pre-disaster levels, the crew can implement new sheetrock and paint it to look like the leak never occurred.
