Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
STEP 4: DRYING AND DEHUMIDIFICATION OUR WATE DAMAGE RESTORATION PROCESS
After all of the water has been extracted, we will check the walls to see if they are wet. Almost all of the materials such as wood, drywall and flooring materials are porous and can retain water. If the retained water isn't dried or cut out it can cause mold damage, warping or cause it to break down.
Our technicians will use everything they have learned during the training class to determine how many air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home. We will do daily monitoring to keep track of the moisture readings to track our progress. We will monitor floors and walls also.
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.
