To fix a small leak on your own, you can follow the below-mentioned steps.
Spot The Leak First
One of the first things you need to do in order to fix water damage in your house is finding the leak. Once you have found that, check out all the areas that have been affected by leaked water. It is essential to carry out a proper inspection so that you know the severity of the issue before you.
Take Out The Affected Drywalls
Once the inspection is completed, get rid of all the affected drywall in the area. While taking out the drywall, keep in mind that there could be mold in the interior part of the wall. So, it would be best to remove the drywalls wearing proper gear such as gloves, goggles, face mask, etc., to protect yourself. If you do not want to handle this on your own, contact One Stop Restoration and we will take care of the whole problem as we specialize in mold damage as well.
Do The Repairs
Once you have spotted the area and taken out the damaged drywall, it is time to install the new drywall. It is essential to keep in mind that the new drywall you will be installing needs to be of the exact same size as the one removed. Using a wrong sized wall will not fit the area properly. Use a top-quality adhesive to set the drywall.
Prime And Paint The Drywall
After installation, the next thing you need to do is prime and paint the drywall. However, doing these two require proper ventilation in the area. So, open the windows to let air come in and turn on the fan to make the paint dry faster.
