Olathe SERVPRO Water Damage Restoration Salvages Wet Drywall, Insulation, and Wall Studs

Water damage can happen anywhere, anytime to Olathe homeowners. A pipe leak that is 1/32" in diameter can consume a whopping 264 gallons per day or 7,920 gallons per month. Without fast action, homeowners can expect much higher water costs, unsalvageable carpeting, buckling drywall, and even mold growth.

SERVPRO acts quickly 24/7 to address water damage restoration needs for Olathe homeowners. Whether the disaster is from a small pipe leak, burst plumbing, or appliance failures, this Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified firm is available to return the affected property to a clean, pre-disaster state.

SERVPRO Remediates Drywall Water Damage for Olathe Homeowners

SERVPRO techs utilize multiple strategies to preserve salvageable drywall after a pipe leak, including:

  • Cutting out non-salvageable, crumbling drywall above the waterline to prevent further saturation
  • Sanitizing wall studs and drywall with EPA-registered fungicides to put a stop to mold growth
  • Sucking out fiberglass insulation with an insulation vacuum for on- or off-site drying or discarding

After extracting moisture and drying the affected space with centrifugal air movers and dehumidification units, SERVPRO professionals focus on structural repairs, including installing new drywall and baseboards, repainting walls, and odor control with water- or solvent-based deodorizers.

SERVPRO of Olathe / Lenexa and SERVPRO of Blue Valley are proud to demonstrate that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster when homeowners call (913) 782-4693.
