Waterbury Homeowners Can Save Their Homes by Hiring Water Restoration Companies Like SERVPRO 

Water restoration companies like SERVPRO understand the building systems, assemblies, and related physical laws to restore your Waterbury home successfully. SERVPRO restorers have the experience and expertise in restoring various building materials used in the construction of your home. 

SERVPRO is among the few water restoration companies in Waterbury with IICRC certified crew with advanced water restoration equipment. The main goal during water damage remediation is to restore the material, including building material and assemblies, rather than replace it. Some of the most commonly affected structural components of your home are the ceiling and wall assemblies. Various materials can make up a ceiling or wall assembly- drywall, plaster, wallpaper, and wood and timber framing.

How do SERVPRO Restorers Repair the Damaged Drywall During Water Cleanup in Waterbury Homes?  

The drywall of your Waterbury home readily absorbs and releases moisture. SERVPRO technicians begin the restoration process by determining the water-damaged area using a non-penetrating moisture meter. The speed at which drywall releases moisture depends on the paint on the surface (latex versus enamel) or the type of wall covering (vinyl wall covering versus paper). 

Latex-covered drywalls dry quicker when SERVPRO techs use dehumidifying and air moving equipment than the enamel-covered drywall. Vinyl wall covering may retard the rate of evaporation as it is not porous. SERVPRO techs might need techniques such as perforating or removing the vapor retardant material to dry such walls. 

It's important to note that according to the IICRC S500 standard, drywalls that have incurred damage by category three water (heavily contaminated) are not restorable and need to be removed.
