The Importance of Flood Cuts in Remediation

When water damages your home and you have water in your walls, we employ a strategic technique known as "flood cuts" to ensure thorough and effective remediation.

What are flood cuts? Flood cuts involve removing a section of drywall above the water-damaged area. While it may sound counterintuitive, this method is rooted in practicality and science. Water has a sneaky way of seeping into spaces that are not immediately visible, causing hidden structural damage and fostering mold growth. By making a flood cut, we gain access to these concealed spaces, allowing us to accurately assess the extent of the damage.

Why do we do this? Flood cuts facilitate proper airflow and ventilation during the drying process. This reduces the chances of residual moisture and mold spores lingering in inaccessible areas. By acting swiftly and making calculated flood cuts, we prevent potential long-term issues that could compromise the structural integrity of your property and the health of its occupants.

We prioritize your safety and the integrity of your property. Trust us to go beyond the surface and ensure a thorough remediation process that leaves your property truly clean, dry, and secure.
