Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process

After the water is removed the next step in the water restoration process is drying and dehumidification. 

Having water removed from the property is a huge step, but it's not a job done. Lurking in floor material and behind walls are high levels of moisture. Some of this material is obviously wet — touching this material makes this obvious. Other aspects of the damage is hidden. Building materials like wood, drywall and various flooring are surprisingly absorbent. Over time these materials will fester with mold and begin the decomposition process. 

Our dehumidifiers will help prevent secondary damage to contents and our commercial grade air-movers will dry the walls and flooring material.

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

Drying Equipment

  • 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.
