Water Damage Drying Equipment
During Water Restoration it is very important to set up Drying Equipment right away. Drying involves the Removal of Water. The Drying Equipment Lowers the Humidity and Traps the Moisture in the Air. Any standing water should be extracted prior to any Drying Equipment placement.
In order to dry certain materials you must prepare to remove moisture from the air. Setting up a Drying Chamber around the affected Area will contain the moisture in the air. Drying Equipment is placed within the Drying Chamber to Heat Up and Extract that moisture from the air and materials. All the Equipment work hand in hand together.
Drying Equipment is placed to dry Carpets, Drywall, Wood and Framing. Specialty Drying Equipment can also be placed to tackle unique drying challenges. Especially when you are attempting to dry certain materials like Hardwood Floors, Tile, Inside Walls or Under Cabinets. The correct type equipment and amount of equipment are critical for a balanced drying system the air movers pushing air over the materials create the evaporation of water from the materials to be dried once this has happened the dehumidifiers can then remove the water from the air that has been evaporated from the wet materials if there is not enough air movers then the evaporation slows down and there is not enough water in the air for the dehumidifiers if there are to many air movers creating to much evaporation and not enough dehumidification then the building sweat and not drying rapidly this is why a balanced drying system is important for water damage restoration to be successful at SERVPRO north Daytona/ Ormond beach we have trained technicians that can accomplish this for rapid drying in most water damage situations
It is very important to never turn off the Drying Equipment during the Drying Process. If the Process is stopped you will need to start the Process all over again.
