Drywall is like a sponge and will absorb water from a leak or flood. This may cause visible signs that you have or are, experiencing water damage. The ceiling or walls may have water spots, stains and or discoloration. The walls may also have cracking, bubbling or peeling paint or wallpaper. If you notice a musty odor this could be a sign that microbial growth has developed in the drywall. Because this growth can be a serious health hazard, it’s not uncommon to remove up to 18 inches of drywall as soon as possible. If you see any signs of a water leak in your home, call a trusted water restoration company immediately. Time is important in these situations!
