Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
After all standing water has been extracted, we will inspect the floors and walls for wetness. Nearly all building materials are porous and retain water. Wood, drywall, and some flooring will brown and warp. Additionally, they can have mold damage if not remediated correctly and on-time.
Our technicians will use professional moisture meters to measure the exact level of wetness. All data is documented and used to monitor your property. We use this to scientifically prove our water damage restoration process and give you peace of mind.
Our technicians will also setup dehumidification equipment and air movers. Our equipment is essential to remove moisture fast enough to prevent mold and other secondary damage to your property. During setup, our technicians will explain what our equipment does and what you can expect from it while it’s needed in your home.
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.
