Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
After we have extracted the water from your property, we will thoroughly inspect your baseboards, sheetrock and other surfaces to determine if they were affected by the water damage.
All water damage areas have the potential to affect adjoining rooms, as water easily travels under walls and through open doorways.
Any areas that are wet will need to be removed in order to reduce the chance of mold growth and to ensure we completely dry your property.
Our team of professionals will remove all wet carpet, baseboards, sheetrock, insulation and other materials from the property as we continue with the drying process.
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.
