Structural Drying

Water that has entered or flooded your residential or commercial property can cause significant damage to both the structure of the building and the contents—damage that can be both costly and permanent, if not properly and thoroughly dried and treated. When water damage occurs, time is of the essence. Immediate remediation may help mitigate the extent of damage your property will suffer.

Structural drying from water damage involves more than placing a few fans in the area in an effort to dry the carpet. Structural drying involves focusing on the walls and other building materials in the drying process. When you know these materials have been properly and thoroughly dried, you can be assured the structure is sound and safe from the possibility of permanent damage or an infestation from mold.

The technicians at All Flood & Fire understand the science behind structural drying. It is a process that takes into consideration ambient airflow, humidity, and temperature. By understanding the levels of airflow, humidity and temperature, and using the most appropriate combination of equipment for the size of the space and materials that need to be dried, we are able to obtain the best drying results for each scenario.

Structural drying from water damage occurs in phases that include: 1) extracting liquid water, 2) drying surfaces, and 3) drying materials. We use air movers to facilitate water evaporation by supplying dry air directly to wet surfaces. Our water and flood damage restoration experts use dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air and encourage continued air movement and drying. And, maintaining the best air temperature for the current condition will ensure the equipment being used in the dry-out process works at optimum levels.

Water-damaged building and structural materials can often be salvaged if they are dried and treated quickly and professionally. When we combine our technical expertise and know-how with our years of experience and state-of-the-art drying equipment, we can readily calculate how much and what type of equipment is needed and exactly how long it will take for structural and material drying to occur.

When water enters and floods your property, both the structure of the building and the materials and contents inside can sustain substantial damage.
