Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Drying and Dehumidification Process
After water extraction, it's important to address residual moisture in the building materials. Although floors and walls may appear dry, they can still retain moisture, leading to structural damage and mold growth.
Drying and Dehumidification Our professionals assess the situation using room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal placement of air movers and dehumidifiers. We continuously monitor the progress with moisture meters until the materials reach acceptable drying goals.
Effective Dehumidification We employ specialized dehumidification equipment to prevent secondary water damage, such as floor and wall swelling or warping, as well as damage to furniture.
Progress Monitoring Moisture levels are regularly checked to track the drying process and ensure effectiveness.
Comprehensive Drying Equipment Industrial-grade dehumidifiers and high-speed air movers are utilized to create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture. This accelerates moisture evaporation and promotes efficient drying.
By implementing advanced drying and dehumidification techniques, we mitigate further damage, safeguard structural integrity, and prevent mold growth. Our precise monitoring and use of specialized equipment ensure thorough and effective drying of your home or business.
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.
