How Can Raleigh Homeowners Salvage Wet Bathroom Cabinets?
SERVPRO Water Mitigation Specialists Clean and Dry Raleigh Home Fixtures
Whether homeowners live in Raleigh or elsewhere, insurance claim data indicates that bathrooms are one of the most vulnerable areas of a property when it comes to water damage risk. Faucet leaks, bathtub overflows, and damaged plumbing require fast water damage mitigation to prevent costly structural damage and mold growth.

SERVPRO’s extensive training program educates technicians, staff, and franchise owners with up-to-date information on water cleanup best practices for the restoration industry.
SERVPRO Water Mitigation for Bathroom Cabinetry
If a bathroom sink cabinet in a Raleigh home requires water mitigation, drying can take longer due to the additional layers between the wall and the cabinet backing. If the cabinet does not have backing, technicians can drill small holes into the affected wall to facilitate airflow for structural drying and patch holes after mitigation. This process can be replicated with a cabinet that has backing, provided that technicians can patch holes with comparable material.
Other considerations for bathroom cabinetry include:
- The extent of water exposure, which may require some demolition to save remaining drywall and fiberglass insulation
- Airflow under the cabinet can be addressed by removing the toe-kick and drilling holes into it
- Implementing vent systems to force dry air into cavities
