Commercial Water Damage Professionals Discuss Problems With Wet Insulation

Commercial Commercial Water Damage Professionals Discuss Problems With Wet Insulation Contact SERVPRO to evaluate the damage.

When pipes leak above the ceiling or in between the walls inside your Highland Park/Deerfield business, many structural issues can occur. Moisture always follows gravity so leaks that take place above your building or high up behind the wall can cause extensive commercial water damage as it flows to the floor. You may not even notice water damage right away and excessive moisture can saturate acoustic ceiling tiles and drywall forcing them to be replaced. If water flows behind the walls, other structural items such as your studs and insulation can get affected.

Some insulation can be dried out during a commercial water damage project, but other types must be removed and replaced. Most types of insulation get ruined with high moisture levels and must be thrown out. Fiberglass insulation can at times be saved if drying procedures take place promptly. If the fiberglass material stays wet for too long though, the paper backing on it can become a prime food source for mold. When removing contaminated insulation, our IICRC certified technicians follow strict guidelines during the process so that air quality does not become an issue.

Dealing with wet insulation can be extremely difficult, and it is a job best left to a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO of Highland Park/Deerfield. Depending on the severity of the situation, we can most times complete the majority of the mitigation work when your business is closed. If this is not possible, then we secure the area and make sure that the job site is safe for your employees and customers. In some situations, we can complete the work a section at a time so that the majority of your business can stay open during the process.

If you ever have a water leak at your place of business call SERVPRO of Highland Park/Deerfield anytime.
