Hurricane Sandy Water and Flood Damaged Sheetrock Removal and Interior Demolition
by TrashitMan

Recently the East Coast suffered a lot of damage due to Hurricane Sandy. Many homes have some water damage from the high flood waters. If your home had high water levels, then you need to get the damaged and wet sheetrock removed before mold and rot sets in. Water damaged drywall holds water for a very long time. Drywall also deteriorates after being submerged in water. The moisture that is held in the sheetrock will be slowly released back into your home, causing health hazards and mold buildup.

If your home had some water damage then you need to act fast in order to prevent widespread damage to your home and possessions. Call the Trashitman for help at 718-326-6969 to remove wet drywall from your home immediately.

In the photo below you can see a home that was damaged in the flood waters. The moisture in the walls is slowly being released into the air. This is condensing on the window. This moisture will get into your furniture, clothing, ceiling and electronics if not taken care of promptly. Within days mold and mildew will set in.

In the photo below you can see some water damaged drywall that has begun to mold. The water level is shown by the ruler sitting against the wall. You can see that mold has begun to spread upward into the wall. Drywall can transfer water up through the wall, causing even more extensive damage if not removed quickly.
