Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Ensuring Your Property Is Dry After A Loss

Once any excess water has been removed from your property, the next step is to begin the drying and dehumidifying process. At first glance, your floors, walls, and ceilings might look completely dry. That is most likely not the case. Water loves to travel and will migrate as far as it possibly can. Water can soak up into your walls, or dig its way underneath your flooring. Our crew uses advanced technology, such as our moisture meters and thermal cameras, to quickly locate any remaining moisture on your property. We will then strategically place our drying equipment in the areas that allow for the most efficient drying process.

Drying / Dehumidification

Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.

  • Use Dehumidification Equipment
  • Use Monitoring Equipment to Track Progress

Monitor Floor and Walls

Drying Equipment

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
  • High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which accelerates the evaporation of moisture.
