Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Once the water has been removed, the next step in the process it to create an environment in the home that is conducive to drying. To do this, our certified technicians will set up a drying system using air movers and dehumidifies and other specialty drying equipment.
The goal of this process is to remove moisture from the atmosphere and also draw moisture out of the walls, floors, ceilings and other services. Doing this in an efficient manner prevents further damage and allows you to get back to normal life and or business operations as it was before the water damage happened.
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.
