Wet drywall can be saved if it is addressed quickly, and the extent of the damage is not too severe. However, the success of saving wet drywall will depend on several factors, such as the source and type of water, the amount of water damage, and the length of time the drywall has been wet. If the wet drywall has been exposed to clean, potable water (Category 1 water), and the damage is addressed within 24-48 hours, there is a good chance that the drywall can be saved.


If the wet drywall has been exposed to contaminated water (Categories 2 or 3 water), or if the damage is extensive and has been left untreated for an extended period, the drywall may need to be removed and replaced to prevent further damage and health risks.

In short, water mitigation is best left to the professionals. By hiring a professional water mitigation company, you can ensure that the damage is properly addressed, and the affected areas are restored to their pre-loss condition.
