What Do I Do?! -- Water Damage Tips! Dry The Area
Oh no! Water has damaged your home! What do you do?!
Take a breath. We’re here to help.
One of the steps in our mitigation process is drying the affected area. Certain materials dry at different rates and they all have a moisture content level they must meet before being considered “dry.”
Interesting enough, did you know that wood is not always completely dry? Did you know that concrete is not either? Water is in most materials in your home, just to a small degree. Unfortunately, if items get too wet, they may not be salvageable. Read more about removing materials in our last water loss blog.
When items can be dried in place, we set two different types of drying equipment: Air movers and Dehumidifiers. Air movers are large fans that move air throughout the room at a much higher rate than a typical fan you buy from the store. The Dehumidifiers we use are large or extra large in size, so they are not the typical dehumidifier units you find at your local store. Dehumidifiers pull water out of the air and bring it through the system to the hose and into a drain located on your property. With these pieces of equipment we can dry standard jobs on average in three to five days!
If you have a water loss occur in your home, give our team a call. We will do whatever we can to make it “Like it never even happened.”
