Structural Drying Service
Structural drying is the removal of water and moisture from walls, ceilings, sub floors, and cavities where you can't see water. Removing surface water and moisture is not enough to prevent water damage and mold.
What Is Structural Drying?
Structural drying is the removal of moisture that remains in a structure after all standing water has been removed. Things like walls, ceilings, floors, and cabinets are a few types of structures that can trap moisture and can't be detected without specialized equipment.
Our certified restoration specialists have the experience necessary to dry your property correctly. We've been doing this since 1993.
Structural Drying Methods
Before any drying can take place, IR Cameras are used to locate the moisture. Once the moisture is located, air movement, directed heat drying, and LGR Dehumidifiers are some of the ways to dry the structures.
- Directed Heat Drying (TES) allows for faster drying without having to remove wall boards. Also prevents mold, rot and decay from prolonged soaking.
- LGR Dehumidifiers remove up to 250 pints of water from the air per day with the ability to duct the moisture outside. This isn't your ordinary dehumidifier found in home improvement stores.
- Desiccant Dehumidifier uses silica gel to remove moisture from the air.
- Air Movers assist in the drying by moving the air over the wet area causing evaporation to be accelerated.
Does My Home Or Business Need Structural Drying?
There is a high probability that you need structural drying if your home or business has experienced a flood, plumbing disaster, or sink/tub overflow.
The amount of moisture in your walls, floors, and ceilings determines whether structural drying is necessary. Another factor is the materials your home or business are constructed from. The safest way to tell is for a professional water damage technician to take moisture readings and to use an IR Camera.
