How to Dry Water Damaged Ceilings in Shreveport
Drying Water in Ceiling Cavities of Shreveport Properties
Because air pockets and pressure fluctuations continue to the highest points of your plumbing, many of our Shreveport customers experience substantial water loss incidents originating in their ceiling spaces between floors. Even if these pressure differentials do not lead to a full separation or burst, leaks can result. Moisture present in the ceiling cavity can lead to mold and microbial threats, or continually weaken ceiling materials to the point of collapse.
As much as our professionals must address all aspects of water damage to Shreveport homes, these tasks must get performed in the order of the highest severity for the household. We seek to protect installed construction materials as much as possible, and that begins with limited removal of specific ceiling tiles or portions of stucco to gain stable access to the damaged area. The faster that we can address this threatened area, the better chance we have of reducing the development of mold colonies.
To reach both the damaged plumbing and continue the drying efforts necessary to restore installed ceiling materials and the flooring above the water damage, our technicians can remove insulation materials by hand or with our insulation vacuum. With access to the damaged areas of pipe, our licensed general contractors can repair the plumbing while our team sets up our cutting-edge drying equipment.
With confined spaces like ceiling cavities, air movers are not always the most effective drying system. Our positive pressure devices like the InjectiDry system can allow us to provide a minimally invasive burst of heated air into this space to force moisture into the environment for collection by our desiccant or LGR dehumidifiers in place within the house or outside with our larger trailered units.
Anywhere that water loss effects can get discovered in your home require a specific approach with our cutting-edge equipment. Our SERVPRO of South Shreveport professionals have extensive training through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to help you navigate the damage in your home and restore it quickly.
