How Interior Moisture Affects Paint and Drywall

How Interior Moisture Affects Paint and Drywall. Water damage can wreak havoc on your interior and cause major damage to the walls. If there is moisture inside of your home, keep reading to find out how it can affect the paint and the drywall.

The Moisture Gets Beneath the Paint

If you do not have proper ventilation in your space, the dampness can eventually get beneath the paint. This might happen in corners or near the sink or the shower. Once the water gets underneath the paint, it might cause a noticeable brown stain. Without attention, this will cause the paint to peel along the edges and seams of the drywall.

The Drywall Starts to Sag

With prolonged exposure to moisture, the drywall might start to sag. If this happens, you either have to completely replace the damaged drywall or cover it up with new sheets. Replacing drywall is a job that you should leave to the professionals so they can be sure to do it right the first time.

The Moisture Creates the Environment for Mold

Wetness inside of the walls creates the perfect breeding ground for mold. If you have water damage on your paint or your drywall, you might want to have it replaced to avoid dealing with mold.

The Drywall has Holes

Moisture can actually cause holes in the drywall because the drywall will crumble. Small holes and patches can be closed up easily. If the holes get too big, though, they can cause significant damage in the wall. Hire some professionals to come and look at the damage so they can fix them before it gets any worse.
