Water damage, if not treated quickly and efficiently, can damage flooring and personal belongings as well as heightening the chance for mold growth. Our Franchise Professionals here at SERVPRO of Iowa City/Coralville are here and “Ready for whatever happens.” With water damaged houses and business, there is a method sometimes needed that is called a Flood Cut. A Flood cut is made from the floor up, cutting out the drywall when you have a water loss. This cut is made at two feet of height.  As the water works its way up the drywall, it prevents the water from continuing to move up and makes it easier for reconstruction. Additionally, the insides can be dried and sanitized behind wall cavity. This term is used in water remediation as well as construction for describing partial removal of drywall, allowing access to framing and salvageable materials to continue the drying process. The drywall can easily be fixed, making it look “Like it never even happened.”
