Water Cleanup In Delta Can Require The Demolition Of Unsalvageable Materials

If a plumbing system fails in a unit above your Delta condo, it could cause excessive moisture to enter your dwelling from your ceiling. Whenever the source of a leak is above your unit, the H2O that enters can cause you to have to conduct extensive water cleanup because the moisture will follow gravity down and possibly negatively affect several of your contents and building materials on the way down.

Whenever a professional company such as SERVPRO conducts water cleanup in your Delta condominium, we start by doing a thorough inspection of your structure. We can use specialized moisture sensors and other equipment like infrared cameras to find where all the moisture went. In some cases, we can save many of your contents and building materials with our extraction and structural drying procedures. In other situations, when items get saturated and ruined, we must remove and replace them.

When deciding to remove your affected contents or building materials, our SERVPRO technicians take into account the porosity of the material and whether not the moisture was contaminated. For example, if your flooring gets affected by water damage that comes from a category two or three sources, all of your wet carpets and pad must be removed. In category two situations where water from the outside or sources like sink or bath drains, the pad must be removed, but it is possible to salvage the carpets. In category three cases where the source is a backed-up toilet or sewage drain, both the carpet and pad must get removed and disposed of due to the possibility of contamination.

If the moisture coming into your condo from above has saturated your walls and ceiling, the drywall or other material may have to be cut down and removed. Whenever our SERVPRO crew removes ceiling or your sheetrock, we follow the moisture and cut just the section that got ruined. To make hanging the replacement drywall easier, we can cut the drywall to a stud that did not get wet.

If you ever notice H2O pouring into your condo from the ceiling, it is wise to call SERVPRO of Montrose / Telluride at (970) 240-6970 24/7. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
