How Does a Sagging Ceiling from Water Damage Get Fixed in Reading Homes?
Our SERVPRO Team can Help With the Repairs and Restoration of Reading Homes Need After a Loss.
Water damage incidents can occur quickly, but they can also damage your property slowly over time, as is often the case with a persistent ceiling leak. When structural elements start to sag and show water damage, we can help with a comprehensive restoration and build-back solution.
Removing Sagging Materials and Damaged Elements
When water damage in Reading homes results from ceiling leaks, the sagging materials or collapsed elements must get addressed before anything else. Our contractors safely uninstall damaged building materials and clean up the area for debris and heaped bulk materials. Leaving the cavity exposed allows access to our drying equipment to remove moisture.
Moisture Management in Structural Cavities
It is critical to remove water and moisture damage from this affected cavity as thoroughly as possible. Lingering damp pockets created space for mold growth and continued structural deterioration, so we must utilize several pieces of equipment in our inventory to manage this situation quickly. Some of these include:
- Axial air movers
- Centrifugal air movers
- Portable electric heaters
- Desiccant dehumidifiers
- Positive pressure systems
- Surface moisture meters
Reconstruction Services for Reading Homes
We can provide a wealth of reconstruction and build-back services for damaged homes using our general contractor license. In this sense, we would need to focus on the damaged portions of plumbing and make sure this service was safe to re-pressurize after repairs. We could then safely reinstall removed drywall and other materials from this ceiling system.
