Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
After the bulk of the water is removed the next step is to rid the property of the excess, that's drying and dehumidification.
Visually the water may appear gone, but that's only an apparent absence. Water tries exceedingly hard to find a way to stay; it absorbs itself into the flooring and walls and will only be extracted under duress. That's where our drying and dehumidification equipment and techniques roll in. The porous material of your property, material like wood, drywall, and carpeting dries as a continual movement of air circulates through the property.
Our teams are equipped with advanced technology and techniques that helps us identify and address the unseen moisture. Our dehumidifiers will help prevent secondary damage to contents and our commercial grade air-movers will dry the walls and flooring material.
Drying / Dehumidification
Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.
- Use Dehumidification Equipment
- Use Monitoring Equipment to Track Progress
Monitor Floor and Walls
We check the moisture levels to monitor the drying process.
- Monitor Floors
- Monitor Walls
- Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
- High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which accelerates the evaporation of moisture.
