When walls are wet, wallpaper acts as a vapor barrier and restricts our ability to dry it. Special drying measures may be needed when this barrier is present.

Here are a few tips on helping to dry out your home faster and more efficiently when sheetrock covered in wallpaper is wet

  • Peel away covering to expose wet drywall 
  • If mold or microbial growth is present behind the wall, air movement can spread mold or microbial growth spores throughout the structure 
  • Perforate the wall to ventilate 
  • Remove baseboard to ventilate the wall cavity
