Once a building has been exposed to either a burst pipe or leak, steps must be taken to dry the building out. Dehumidification after drying out a building is a time-consuming effort. Water causes direct damage to all materials. Plaster disintegrates, wood can deteriorate and electrical items can be irreparably damaged. There can also be unknown contaminants in the water especially from sewage or rainwater. Dampness also promotes the growth of moisture-related mold, mildew, and fungus that leads to dry rot.
All our IICRC Certified water damage technicians understand how to use a dehumidifier and air mover effectively and efficiently. There are several principles to the physics of drying. Just placing a dehumidifier in a room does not work unless all the fundamentals are first achieved. Correct application of drying out techniques is the key to completely drying out a structure. If you force your building to dry too quickly, additional damage to the building elements will occur.

Dehumidification, Let the Experts Do It!
Once the trapped moisture has been broken down into droplets by the air movers, this process uses a machine with special humidity-absorbing material called a desiccant. A fan collects the moisture-rich air from the fan and pulls it into the dehumidifier. As the air passes through, it collects the moisture droplets from the air. The collected moisture drips into the dehumidifier’s reservoir and can be disposed of as water.
