Apartment Water Damage Mitigation, Chapel Hill, NC
The first step in repairing this water damaged apartment in Chapel Hill, NC was to stop it from getting work. We mitigated the damages by tearing out drywall, trim, insulation, flooring, gypcrete underlayment, and more because it was all wet. The framing materials were also wet making it impossible to dry unless exposed by removing those finish materials. We dried the salvageable materials back to their standard moisture contents and treated them for any possible microbial growth before making any repairs.
