In this phase of the water damage mitigation service, we break out the hammers, pry bars, and other tools to start getting after the bulk of the work- removing the water damaged materials. While many could assume this would be a chaotic, extremely destructive looking task, it is actually very calculated and controlled. We remove water damaged materials with the aim to salvage closeby materials as much as possible. For example, the baseboards in this project are being removed, but we take time before pulling them off the wall to cut the caulking with a razor, allowing it to depart from the wall it is on with no damage to the wall paint or drywall. It is this patience in our process and accuracy that CWDR believes makes them the best water damage repair service in NC.
At this project, we continue removing the water damaged flooring and carrying it out to our vehicles for disposal until it is all gone. If you look closely at the underside of the removed wood flooring, you can actually see a ton of droplets of moisture still on the wood, showing how much water has been harbored under this floor. If this floor was left for a longer period of time sitting wet, there would have been a guaranteed mold infestation.
