Baseboard's worst nightmare!!!

7/14/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO has been called out to water losses and we need to determine the extent of the damage and what materials are affected. The photo shows some baseboard separation from a wall. This is a good indicator that there could be water damage affecting the specific wall. In this case, there was a fridge line that had leaked on the opposite side of the wall and the water-saturated the wall causing the baseboards to shift away from the wall.

Saturated drywall becomes soft and no longer holds the nails in place that were used to attach the baseboards to the wall. When this occurs, the baseboards are completely removed from the wall and inspected for mold growth. In most cases, a flood cut is then performed to remove the affected drywall and expose the framing. The framing can then be properly dried before the drywall is replaced.

If disaster strikes, you can trust that SERVPRO has the experience, expertise, and equipment to get you back to "Like it never even happened."
