What is a Flood Cut...

Flood cuts are a common part of the restoration procedure when drywall has been badly damaged by water, our technicians will remove wet materials to avoid secondary damages. When an IICRC certified water restoration contractor cuts out portions of damaged drywall to avoid continued damage to the structure it’s called a flood cut. Depending on the type of water, length of damage and amount of water different methods of flood cutting can take place. Typically, the cut is made 12-18 inches above where the flood damage stopped, so that the damaged drywall can be discarded and address additional “hidden moisture” concerns can be addressed.
