Due to an extensive leak in their Aprilaire system, this Madison home experienced significant water damage to carpet and drywall. A flood cut was required to ensure proper drying and mold prevention.
Flood cut is a term used in the context of water damage restoration and refers to the process of removing a portion of the affected drywall or plasterboard above the waterline. It is often necessary in cases of significant water intrusion, such as flooding or severe leaks, to mitigate potential long-term issues such as mold growth and potential structural issues.
While a flood cut may involve removing a portion of the wall, it is done strategically to facilitate proper restoration and minimize potential long-term issues. SERVPRO professionals have the expertise to assess the situation and determine the extent of the flood cut required to effectively mitigate the water damage and restore the affected area to its preloss condition.
