When Structural Elements Become Damaged by Migrating Water Loss Effects in Your Lafayette Home, Controlled Demolition can be a Method of Gaining Control of the Situation

After a water loss incident, your Lafayette home could show signs of several damages. As challenging as some of these conditions might be to overcome initially, our SERVPRO team has multiple strategies to help. Mitigation solutions often involve some degree of controlled demolition to regulate the spread and severity of water loss migration. This early action can help to reduce more widespread tear-out and reconstruction at later points.

Multiple actions fall under the heading of water cleanup for Lafayette homes. Controlled demolition can help to reduce the overall amount of cleaning and recovery necessary for a property by discarding materials too damaged to preserve. With a team of in-house contractors capable of overseeing the removal of these materials and the complete build back of the removed elements, we can make the total recovery effort for your home more efficient and cost-effective.

What Materials Require Controlled Demolition? 

There are many materials affected by moving water in your house after a loss incident. Some are more sensitive than others to absorption and overexposure. Understanding which elements in your home can become the most harshly affected can help you to recognize this damage as it begins. It is often vital to secure professional restoration as soon as possible after a disaster occurs. With a 24/7 response to water emergencies in homes and businesses in our area, our SERVPRO team has become a trusted name for mitigation, restoration, and full-scale build back when necessary. Some of the most directly impacted structural elements after a water loss include:

  • Drywall
