Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
After our team has extracted any standing water the focus then moves to drying and dehumidifaction. This is a process where by we use air movers to wick moisture up and out of surfaces and into the surrounding air. Our commercial grade high capacity dehumidifiers then remove the wet moisture from the air and return warm dry air.
This process forces moisture out of the various materials at the home or business so they can properly dry. This is a critical part of the drying and restoration process because any porous material, from wood to dry wall can hold damaging levels of moisture even if they look completely dry.
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.
