Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Once the excess water has been removed we are able to move on to the next step of restoring your home or business. After the water draining, the floors and walls may appear dry and ready to be worked on, but a quick and thorough inspection will reveal they are wet to the touch. Nearly all building materials used in the average home or business, like wood, drywall, and flooring materials, are porous and therefore can retain a lot of water. This retained water can cause complications because the materials will begin to break down, warp, or cause mold damage. We have to act quickly to ensure that more damage doesn't occur to 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.
