A flooded property contains vast quantities of moisture. There may be situations where demolition of a building assembly is necessary to restore the home. Demolition is used for contamination control which is a common symptom of floodwaters entering a building. However, demolition can also accelerate drying times in a property.

Secondary issues like microbe infestation or waterlogging can both occur if a property is incompletely dried. Since some materials can suffer permanent damage within a short space, speeding up the drying process through demolition can be essential.

  • Removing the baseboard of walls to ventilate wall cavities is essential once insulation gets wet.
  • Sometimes total demolition of walls is a necessity to accelerate drying times, as stated by S500 guidance.
