When walls are wet, wallpaper acts as a vapor barrier and restricts our ability to dry it. Special drying measures may be needed when this barrier is present.

Here are a few tips on helping to dry out your home faster and more efficiently when sheetrock covered in wallpaper is wet

  • Peel away covering to expose wet drywall 
  • If mold or microbial growth is present behind the wall, air movement can spread mold or microbial growth spores throughout the structure 
  • Perforate the wall to ventilate 
  • Remove baseboard to ventilate the wall cavity

fire before and after split screen "Like it never even happened."

As you can see, there was extensive damage to this property.  We began by removing all the contents and sentimental items from the home by safely packing them out and inventorying everything before storing it in our safe, climate-controlled warehouse. We made sure we addressed everything the customer needed with the utmost of care.  Then we began the reconstruction and restoration project on the home.  We found several structural concerns and removed and replaced all those framing members affected.  This project lasted for about 4 months from start to finish.  Once we handed the keys back to the homeowner they were very happy and surprised by some of the proposed changes we made based on their approvals.  They are back in and enjoying their wonderful home again.  "Like it never even happened."

This home was severely damaged in Hillsboro. The picture reflects several important things. Even when a water loss originates on the second floor we can see gravity forced the water downstairs but also shows how the water climbs up the drywall.  The water began flowing from a laundry room at the top of the stairs and it ran down those stairs saturating the pad under the carpet which then spread it to the walls where it climbed up the drywall.  These two-foot cuts are known throughout our industry as flood cuts.  The customer was very happy with the final product!
