Removing Baseboards After Water Damage

Why Remove Baseboards?

Why are baseboards sometimes removed after water damage? In this Tampa home, water seeped under the baseboards. SERVPRO of Oldsmar/Westchase removed the baseboards to ensure the sheetrock was properly dried underneath. Extraction and drying are the first steps of the water restoration process, and crucial to avoid mold! With the humidity, moisture, and warm Florida air, mold is given the perfect breeding ground. Although we are experts in both water restoration and mold remediation, we work hard to prevent secondary damages and mold growth after water loss. You can count on SERVPRO of Oldsmar/Westchase to make any size or severity water loss "Like it never even happened."
