Professional Structural Drying and Restoration
Structural drying is a process that involves removing excess moisture from the structure of a building. The goal is to prevent further damage and potential structural issues by completely removing all moisture from the affected areas. The process involves tracking down humidity and removing wet materials, monitoring the drying progress until moisture levels reach desired goal, as well verifying and monitoring the humidity and moisture to make sure the moisture doesn't return.
Applied Structural Drying is part of the repair process after water damage which works with structural restoration and water extraction. It is a critical step in flood damage restoration because:
- Excess moisture can cause structural materials such as wood, drywall and insulation to weaken and eventually deteriorate. This can compromise the stability of your property and put you at risk of costly repairs or even collapse.
- Standing water and moisture can also lead to mold growth, which poses serious health risks to you and your family.
Structural drying needs to be executed as soon as possible after the water damage, using the right equipment for water extraction, evaporation and dehumidification.
