Structural Drying

Structural drying is a cost effective way to bring your home or business back to pre-loss condition after water damage has occurred. It has evolved over the years. Before modern technology it was a guessing game using trial and error. Structural drying has become a science with many techniques used by professional restoration companies.IMG_2074-150x150312-6-150x150

Why would I need this service? Structural drying is needed to prevent secondary water damage to your property. Water damage can be deceptive. If not taken care of promptly, greater damage will surface when materials delaminate, shrink, split and further deteriorate to where costly repairs are required. It is needed after flood and water damage has occurred as well as when there is mold present.   If you have condensation on windows or  pipes that are within your walls, there could be damage occurring to your home or business. If water damage is not remediated properly and there is more than a 16% moisture content remaining in building materials, mold could be present and causing damage. Mold can start to grow within 24 hrs.

Before structural drying equipment and techniques are used,  thermal imaging  and video boroscoping can be done to detect hidden moisture within ceilings, in and behind walls, within and under floors and in other unseen structures where moisture can be hiding. Dehumidifiers, turbo drying fans and hydroxyl generators are used to remove water and excess moisture from the air, furniture, flooring, carpets, and spaces between walls. Porous building substances like drywall usually are not able to be dried and keep there integrity therefore they should be replaced. After remediation has happened, thermal imaging can show that the moisture has been removed.bedroom-thermal-imaging-150x150
