Flood Cut

11/13/2019 (Permalink)

Here at SERVPRO of South Pasadena/San Marino, we care about the amount of distraction and secondary damage that is caused by Water Damage.

What is a flood cut?  Removing the bottom 12-24 inches of drywall in a flood-affected room. 

Examples of why we flood cut:

  • If we detect there is wet insulation
  • The water is contaminated from the sewage or other storm  related contaminates
  • If any microbial growth is detected

After the lower wall portions are removed, any studs or framing are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Once the walls are completely dried out new insulations can easily be installed and the finalization of the build back can continue. 

Some of our steps:

The water removal process begins almost immediately and with professional extraction types of equipment, we remove the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property, which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water that is harder to access. Our professionally certified crew will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.
