The first step in the process is to stop the source of moisture. Once the source is stopped our crews will proceed with removing the water from the affected areas.
In order to prevent bacterial growth and speed up the process of drying an application of an antimicrobial is used on affected areas.
Drying: Air Movement
Air movement is a necessity in the drying process. The proper airflow across wet areas helps expedite the drying process.
Dehumidification is the most critical piece of the drying process. The use of air movement dries the materials and the dehumidification pull the moisture out of the air to lower the humidity in the affected areas of the structure to prevent secondary damage.
