SERVPRO Water Extraction from Ceiling Drywall 

After water damage strikes, ceilings can prove vulnerable to leaks, bubbling and peeling paint, and collapsing. This situation can impact a West Lafayette home's structural integrity and point to moisture and mold in insulation, nearby walls, or wall joists. Professional remediation can more readily pinpoint damaged areas and put residents' minds at ease.

SERVPRO professional water removal services for West Lafayette homes include preliminary inspections and estimates, mitigation, and necessary structural repairs. Per restoration industry guidelines, SERVPRO standards, and homeowners' insurance policies, these services are performed.

Remediating Water Damage and Stains on Home Ceilings 

SERVPRO water restoration technicians can take multiple approaches to ceil water damages depending on the damage and materials affected. 

  • Small areas of ceiling impacted by water may only require a small amount of demolition, such as weep holes or a small cutout, to remove irreparable drywall and prepare the area for repairs
  • Extractor wands can mitigate water in hard-to-reach areas as well as on carpeting beneath the leak
  • Air movers combined with specialty tools and equipment can force warm, dry air into wet ceiling cavities and circulate it through the impacted area
  • Dehumidifiers collect excess moisture for removal in nearby sinks or other approved treated sewers, depending on the situation

Depending on the extent of damage to certain types of insulation, like rock wool and cellulose, these materials may require replacement to ensure that property owners have effective insulation. When exposed to water, these types of insulation tend to mat. Metals in rock wool can rust, while cellulose loses antimicrobial properties.
