Drying Walls with Water Damage in Closter Business Buildings – Call SERVPRO

Water leaks often occur inside walls of commercial buildings in Closter. Older pipes and joints gradually degrade, springing leaks that can release hundreds of gallons of water in a few hours. Water spreads inside the walls, onto the floor, and across the entire area of your building. One of the best methods to mitigate damage to flooring materials is to begin mopping up the water immediately once the source has been controlled. But what can be done with water inside walls, especially walls covered in vinyl wallpaper?

SERVPRO provides Closter commercial water damage mitigation and cleanup services. Our team responds in less than four hours from your call and immediately assesses the situation, deploying water removal and drying equipment to protect flooring materials and the contents of your building. The water inside walls presents additional challenges. Many commercial building walls have a vinyl covering on the walls, which act as a vapor barrier. Removing the vinyl barrier, e.g., wallpaper, may involve the entire room, which can be costly.

Our SERVPRO team drills small holes behind the removed floor trim work into the wall to release excess water from the wall's interior. We also use vacuum wands to vacuum excess water from cavities. We force dry air into the wall's interior using air movers attached to a wall venting system. In extreme cases, we remove the drywall and vinyl to properly remove all of the water, moisture and dry the space before completing repairs. We can rig injecti-spray equipment to fit the need of a specific water drying task.

SERVPRO water removal services include:

  • Water clean up
  • Water damage restoration
  • Wall cavity water removal and drying
  • Poly covering of furnishings
