What Happens To Drywall When It Gets Wet?
Wet walls and insulation will hold moisture for a long time. This means that mold can form inside the wall. If your drywall has started to mold, you will need to replace all or part of it. It may lose its structural integrity, becoming soft and weak. mold begins to grow in 24 to 48 hours. The key to not having your wet drywall mold, is speedy drying. While drywall is pretty sturdy, when it’s exposed to water for too long it can get damaged and will require replacement.
