Flood Removal in Cocoa Can Include Inspecting And Mitigating Wet Drywall

Anyone who has lived in Cocoa for a decent amount of time knows that the area can see significant amounts of rainfall. When a storm comes in, the rain can pour down quickly and sometimes force you to have to conduct flood removal if moisture enters the interior of your house. Restoration after a storm takes its toll on your property can include extracting, structural drying, and possibly removing and replacing some of your building materials.

If moisture enters your structure after a rainstorm, it follows gravity and starts accumulating on your floors. As a part of flood removal procedures in Cocoa, a professional mitigation company such as SERVPRO can start the process by seeing where the water traveled. We can figure out which items got wet by using moisture sensors to detect the presence of H2O in your flooring drywall or ceilings. Once we figure out what got wet, we can then come up with a plan to remove all the moisture in your house and return it to the way it was before the storm, "Like it never even happened."

As a part of the initial estimate and inspection process, our SERVPRO technicians can also test the presence of moisture inside your drywall and wall cavities. Drywall is gypsum material with a paper coating on the front, back, and its longer sides. We can find out what portions of your drywall that got yet by using a non-penetrating moisture meter.

Once our SERVPRO team figures out what sections of your walls got negatively affected, we can then use a penetrating moisture meter to get the exact moisture content of your drywall material. We can also use the penetrating meter to test the presence of water in your wooden studs. To figure out how wet your studs or drywall got as a result of the storm damage, we can also test parts of your walls that did not get wet. Testing unaffected areas also help us establish a drying goal.

If a rainstorm ever gets the walls inside your home wet, call SERVPRO of Central Brevard at (321) 638-4947 24/7.
