  • The Restorability of Drywall When Affected by Category 2 and 3 Water Losses..

    There is much debate in the restoration community on the restorability of Gypsum wallboard (more commonly called drywall or sheetrock) when affected by what the IICRC S500 classifies as Category 2 or 3 contaminated water losses.

    Does drywall have to be removed if category 3 water wicks up into it or do we only remove it at the standing water mark? Can pathogens actually travel up into the material by capillary action?
