Wallpaper Can Hold Moisture

10/25/2018 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Wallpaper Can Hold Moisture A Mercer County home hired the wrong company. Dry it out correctly the first time.

Always make sure you hire mitigation professionals who are IICRC certified. Our SERVPRO team was called in for a job after another restoration company failed to dry out a home properly. Instead of just performing a water mitigation job, our team is now doing a mold remediation on an entire home in Mercer County due to the fact the materials in the home were not correctly dried initially. This room looks like its fine but a closer inspection shows mold is growing under the wall paper. If your walls are wet and the wall paper remains in place, it can act as a vapor barrier preventing the drying process from occurring. Chances are the insulation behind the wall is also affected. Water will wick up a wall 1" per hour for the first 12 hours. 

SERVPRO is always ready to take care of homes and businesses affected by disaster. Call us at 732-431-4440, 24 hours a day, and seven days a week.
