Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
After the water is removed the next step in the water restoration process is drying and dehumidification.
At this point in the process the majority of the water is removed from the property but the job is not finished. The flooring and walls may even appear dry, but they're not. A quick inspection will show that the material is still wet to the touch. Other wet material may be hidden behind the wall and unnoticed. This is the more worrisome aspects of the restoration process, wet material, hidden and out of sight. Fortunately, we have advanced equipment to test moisture levels to help ensure we thoroughly address the damage.
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.
