Drying Exterior Walls

Flooding after a storm can wreak havoc in many areas, inundating streets and homes with floodwaters. Basements may be flooded, either through water backing up through basement drains or even through porous walls. It is imperative to remove water from walls in addition to any moisture that may be present inside the basement.

SERVPRO provides flood damage services in Concord and surrounding areas. We have lived and worked in the community providing emergency services for over 28 years. Our people have dealt with almost every emergency possible and have been trained to deal with these emergencies. We respond quickly to your home or business and are available on a 24 / 7 basis.

Drying Exterior Walls After a Flood

After the floods have receded, there can still be high humidity levels in basements, even those that did not have an excessive amount of water inside the basement. Initial cleanup includes removing flood-damaged contents and drying the area. We use water extractors for carpeted floors, air movers, and dehumidifiers. Note: if the water was contaminated, some items might need to be removed or decontaminated following industry procedures.

The walls of your basement may present additional challenges. Flood cuts may be required above the water line to remove flood damaged drywall and expose pockets containing water inside the wall. Homes with cinderblock construction may also contain water inside the cinderblock. Failure to remove this water may be the source of high humidity levels and even mold infestations later on.

SERVPRO can check all exterior walls using moisture sensors. If there are high moisture levels, holes can be drilled at the bottom of the wall to drain water from the interior of the cinderblock wall. We may drill a hole at the top as well to enable airflow and force air into the wall to remove all of the moisture.

An inspection of the exterior areas of the building may also be needed to ensure there is appropriate drainage away from the building to avoid future high moisture conditions inside the cinderblock walls. SERVPRO reviews all of these actions with our clients and their insurance companies.
