Structural Drying: Step-by-Step
The professional technicians we employ at ServiceMaster by Restoration Contractors have the necessary training and certification to conduct dehumidification and structural drying. Whether for a residential or commercial property, we are prepared to help you out and will begin working immediately. We will evaluate the damage, take measurements, and figure out the best approach.
Our structural drying process includes these steps:
1. Non-Invasive Electronic Moisture Detection
Using advanced electronic moisture detection meters, we will measure your property’s moisture levels. This lets us take measurements of interior moisture levels without causing any additional property damage.
Our technicians need to figure out the layout and equipment needed for thorough drying. We’ll do this by considering psychometric factors: room measurement, saturation levels, and calculations of thermodynamic properties for water and air vapors. Using non-invasive moisture meters, we will constantly monitor the process.
2. Water Extraction
Using advanced equipment, our technicians will extract standing water and excess moisture, which needs to be completed before drying can be done. With these steps, the building materials should not suffer structural damage or be susceptible to mold growth.
We will treat water-damaged building materials and remove any materials that are waterlogged. These building materials can include ceilings, flooring, drywall, and more. We need to dry these materials properly to prevent additional damage.
3. Drying Equipment
We will provide customized drying services, deciding what airflow pattern will be best for your property. When we set up drying equipment throughout your property, we will do so in a strategic manner.
We use the following equipment for our drying and dehumidification process:
- Industrial blowers: Industrial blowers work precisely and are good for drying flooded residential properties.
- Desiccant dehumidifiers: Desiccant drying is typically used for extreme water saturation, because it uses controlled warm air and works on a large scale.
- Moisture meters: We use moisture meters to take several moisture measurements throughout the entirety of the drying process. With infrared camera technology, we can track and constantly monitor the process, which allows us to improve targeting and our drying process.
