Painting after Water Damage

Drywall mold and water damageHave you been affected by a flood, a leak or a burst pipe? Water damage may be prevalent throughout the entirety of your house, including the drywall. First of all, it is important to make sure that all the water has been removed and everything in your home is completely dry and properly disinfected before we can proceed. Water damage can lead to mold and mildew if you’re not careful. We highly suggest you call in professional help such as Soilaway or Servpro to treat the mold and mildew immediately; however once their teams are gone, you may find yourself with some remaining staining or peeled paint.

So what do you do after your home has been completely dried out and disinfected? No amount of scrubbing or cleaning can reverse the water damage to your drywall. You will need to repaint in order to restore your walls and ceilings to there former glory.

That’s when you call us, Byrne’s Painting. We have the experience and equipment to make your home look and feel as good as new. There are a couple unique steps to fixing water damaged walls and ceilings. First, we treat the wall with an oil based or alcohol based primer to completely block out stains. Then we carefully blend the stained area with the area that was left undamaged to make sure that the wall is smooth, before we add a final coat of primer to the wall. The final step is to make sure that the final coat of paint matches the rest of the walls so that your home can return to the way it was before the flood, leak or burst pipe. Our goal is for your home to look as good as new, or even better.
