Can You Repair Water-Damaged Drywall?

The ceilings and walls in your home were built to withstand anything, right? You might think so...until your home experiences a water problem. Water damage can occur from a leaky roof, a burst pipe, an overflowing toilet, or anything in between. Often, water-related disasters leave behind a mess in their wake. If your drywall was a casualty of a recent water disaster, read on. 

So, Can You Repair Water-Damaged Drywall?

Yes, you can. With the help of a professional water restoration company, you can have your drywall restored back to its original state in no time. Just remember: the process will take some prep work and can make a bit of a mess—so patience and deep breaths are encouraged!

Here’s What to Do If You Have Water-Damaged Drywall

If you have water-damaged drywall, follow these steps to repair ASAP.

Determine what caused the damage.

Ask yourself a few questions to start: What caused the water damage? Is it still an active site? Once you discover the source of the water, you’ll have a better idea of the extent of the damage. 

Turn off the main water valve.

If the water problem is still on-going, solve it by turning off the main water valve. Until you can call in a professional plumber to assess the situation and make the necessary repairs, do not reactivate the main water valve. 

Clean up excess water.

After calling a plumber to assess the water damage and make emergency repairs, you’ll want to continue mopping up and drying any excess water. While your drywall may remain damp, soaking up excess water quickly can help save your floors and baseboards.

Look out for mold and mildew.

Wet drywall absorbs water, making it a magnet for mold and mildew growth. Moist environments create the ideal breeding ground for these spores (plus, with drywall, it can feast on the paper). You’ll want to act fast with repairing the water-damaged areas to avoid a larger mold-removal process down the road. 

Call in a professional. 

Once you’ve assessed the damage and taken care of the plumbing (if you’re dealing with a leak or burst pipe), you'll want to call in a professional home and water restoration service. A professional team will make sure that the damaged area is thoroughly dry before beginning to patch and repair your drywall to like-new condition.

  • We are very pleased with 970 Services work and their customer service. Our roof was damaged from hail and needed to be replaced. Aaron worked with our insurance supplemental team and ensured we got the full amount that was owed to us. He also made sure the work was done correctly on our roof with a post inspection. Very professional and friendly. Thank you 970 Services for all your help! Definitely recommend!

  • Steve and his crew have done several projects at our house (water remediation, painting, plumbing, minor electrical, etc.), and I would use them again in a heartbeat. They are professional, responsive, and do top quality work. Their detailed estimates show where every penny goes, and they let you know if something needs to change. It's a great feeling to know that I can reach out to Steve if there's a problem, and he'll find a way to solve it.

  • We had a water leak from our hot water heater and our insurance company recommended 970 Services. I cannot tell you how great they were. Steve scheduled us quickly, did a very thorough inspection of damages, set up drying equipment and got things headed in the right direction. He then coordinated all necessary sub contractors for drywall, flooring, and even requested to be present when the insurance adjuster arrived so that they couldn’t skimp on us. This is the company you want to work with and I will never call anyone else! Thank you Steve & 970!
