Water Damage FAQ

Here are the most common questions asked about water damage. For answers to any additional questions you may have, contact us and we can help answer those questions for you.

It can take about 72 hours for water damage to completely dry using fans and dehumidifiers after water extraction.
Extraction is the best method to remove standing water. Dehumidifiers are used to address high moisture content in the air. They should typically be used in conjunction with fans.
Drywall can be effectively dried even if it gets wet. As long as the source of loss is sanitary, a water restoration company can utilize air movers to cause evaporation of water in the drywall and dehumidifiers to remove water from the atmosphere; this practice is usually used when minor water damage and when removing drywall is a big challenge.
Water in wall cavities needs to be dried out by a water restoration company like A.Y. Remodeling and Restoration; we would detach baseboard and drill holes in the drywall to give access to the wall cavity. Sometimes it would best to remove 24 inches of drywall to replace any wet insulation and dry out the structure.
Mold growth on drywall cannot be effectively killed. Because drywall is highly porous it should be removed if it has mold growth.
It depends on the type of flooring. Carpet and pad can be extracted and dried with air movers and dehumidifiers. Real hardwood floor are usually dried using floor mats that draw air from in between the strips of hardwood if the water damage is minor, major water leaks cause water to do under the floor and gets absorbed by the subfloor and the back of the hardwood floor, in this case it’s best practice to remove the floor and dry out the structure underneath to avoid mold growth. Other flooring types like laminate and vinyl may need to be replaced.
Containment is vital for any project where you risk exposure to mold and other airborne substances. Even if your project is for the removal of a different substance or material, containment is necessary to keep other risks under control.

Mold spores are virtually everywhere, and many different types can cause adverse health effects ranging from mild to severe. Mold is attracted to areas with high humidity, excessive moisture and standing water. When disrupted, mold colonies distribute spores into the air to spread and look for other spaces to grow. Containment prevents mold spores from leaving the designated area.
