Understanding Water Damage

When flooding occurs in your home, it is something you’ll want taken care of quickly. Pooled water in your home continues to migrate through ceilings, under walls and saturates materials, so it is imperative to extract standing water as soon as possible. Extraction is accomplished with pumps and powerful equipment that pulls a high vacuum. Once standing water is extracted, all areas of excess moisture must be identified and targeted for drying. The technicians use sophisticated equipment such as penetrating and non-penetrating moisture meters, thermohygrometers, and infrared cameras to detect moisture in areas that might otherwise be invisible.

Drying is a process that involves getting rid of moisture from wet materials primarily using air-movement and dehumidification. Mould can begin to grow on materials that remain wet for 48 to 72 hours, so if your home is not adequately dried out inside the walls, the ceilings, and the flooring, mould will begin to grow. If not properly mitigated early, the mould in the walls, ceiling, and subflooring can grow and make your home a health hazard or even uninhabitable.

While air movers circulate relatively dry air around wet materials to draw out moisture, a powerful low grain refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifier then pulls the moisture from the air

Our floormat drying system enables us to save hardwood flooring that might otherwise have to be replaced. It draws warm, dry air down through seams around the mats and then pulls it back up through the seams under the mats at high vacuum to extract wet air and liquid water, drying the floor thoroughly.
