Vinyl wallcovering covers wet walls too.

Vinyl wallcovering peeled back from a wall and pinned up for wall drying Vinyl wallcovering pulled up and pinned for wall drying behind it.

Those vinyl wallcoverings can add design and colors to a room.  They are smooth and tough as nails.

Vinyl wal covering are also perfect for trapping water and moisture in the drywall it is covering.

In a water damage, the water will wick up the walls from the source (or down from the source) soaking the actual wall material, usually drywall.  Unfortunately, the water/moisture just doesn't wick back out at anywhere near the same speed. 

The wall can stay wet for incredible amounts of time.  Not getting drywall dry in a quick manner increases the chances for real damage to the drywall, including mold.

The photo shows a rental property where we were able to peel the vinyl back and pin it up to get the drywall behind it dry. It is possible to re-glue the vinyl, especially thick commercial grade vinyl.
