The Advantage of Advanced Drying Techniques for Water Damaged Properties
March 27th, 2020
If you have recently suffered water damage in your home, then you know just how devastating, costly, and time consuming it can be. Whenever your property is damaged by water, everything must be dried up completely as soon as possible.
Homeowners that choose to do follow through with this process alone often find themselves unable to finish the job because they just don't have the know-how or tools needed to get the job done quickly and effectively.
Today we will go over the advantages of advanced drying techniques for water damaged properties.
Powerful Water Extraction Equipment
In the past, there were few options available for water damage restoration contractors to perform water damage restoration effectively. The equipment they did have access to was limited in availability and didn't always perform as it should.
However, with the new technology available today, they now have access to innovative tools and the expertise needed to remove and discard water-damaged items and completely dry out the area to prevent mold growth and other problems.
A faster drying process means less time for mold to develop. This can help alleviate common health problems that are associated with mold and mildew growth, including respiratory discomfort and allergic reactions. The mold can also cause damage to and weaken structural materials in the home, which means they will need to be replaced.
With quick-drying techniques, water damaged properties now have access to advanced dehumidification systems that can effectively remove all the moisture and prevent mold growth.
LGR dehumidifiers are often used for water damaged properties because they can reduce the humidity down to as low as 10 percent. They can also remove up to 10 gallons of water from the air per day. If you tried using an older dehumidifier on your own, you would quickly find that it is not nearly as effective.
This kind of dehumidifier uses a silica gel that helps to absorb the moisture in the air. Even when the environment is in below-freezing temperatures, this dehumidifier works. It is suitable for both residential and commercial applications.
This is newer equipment that can help eliminate moisture in water-damaged properties. For this process, the baseboards in the home are removed and then small holes are drilled through the walls near the base. This process is a way to dry the inside of the walls without removing the drywall. It can help save money when it comes to having to replace the drywall and repaint.
When you experience any kind of water damage in your home or business, you must get the water cleaned up and dried up as soon as possible to avoid costly problems in the near future. To do this, you need to have access to the best equipment and knowledge about the most advanced drying techniques to get the job done right.
