Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Once the bulk of the water is removed the next step is drying and dehumidifying the space.
By this moment much is accomplished but the job is not done. Though the water may appear removed, it's not fully gone. The flooring may "appear" dry, but a quick inspection will show that things are not and material is still wet. Then, there's also the wet material lurking behind walls, a more worrisome aspect of the project.
Fortunately our team is equipped with advanced technology, infrared cameras and hygrometers, so that we're able to continually identify and address. 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.
