Demolition and Removal in Commercial Properties
Why do you need demolition during mitigation?
SERVPRO of Northern Rhode Island specializes in residential and commercial restoration for fire, water, and mold losses. We take pride in our work and provide quality service. During mitigation we want to save as much as possible and restore materials back to normal, but unfortunately, at times, mitigation may require demolition. This is because some materials just cannot be saved and salvaged.
Examples of materials that would require demolition and the reason:
Drywall: Drywall would require removal because wet insulation is present; it was affected by water for a long period of time; it was affected by certain categories of water; it has visible "mold" growth; or it is fire damaged or burnt.
Insulation: Insulation would require removal because it is non-slvageable when affected by any type of water, mold, or fire loss.
Tile: Tile would require removal because it acts as a vapor barrier covering wood sub-floors, drywall, and framing. Tile would have to be removed in order to clean and dry the wood sub-floor or framing when affected by water, mold or fire - depending on circumstances and category of loss.
Vinyl: No matter what type of sub-floor, the vinyl would have to be removed. Vinyl acts like a vapor barrier and delaminates when affected by any type of water. Vinyl would have to be removed in order to clean and dry the wood sub-floor when affected by water, mold, or fire - depending on circumstances and category of loss.
