The cut from after a ceiling was affected by water.

When water damage comes into contact with your home or business. In some cases the drywall may need to come out, either ceiling or wall. If it is the case, SERVPRO makes sure the cut is clean and precise. We do this by measuring where the water began and stopped. From there we go about 2 feet above where the water stopped to ensure no wet spots are hiding from us. Then we measure and use a chalkier to have a nice straight line. Then the cutting begins, we use a saw or knife to get the best cut. We always protect the floor and any belongings from dust or fallen drywall. Once the cutting and removal is done. We are there to clean the remaining dust and leftover screws or nails.
