Drying and Dehumidification
Commercial & Residential

Drying and Dehumidification

Was your property affected by a flood? Was there water damage caused by a pipe leak? In all situations in which water reached any area of your home, drying and dehumidification are mandatory. There are so many different reasons you might need to contact Green Restoration i to give you access to professional dry out services. Water damage will always damage equipment and buildings if not adequately taken care of. Most homeowners drastically underestimate moisture damage. However, we think it’s enough to mention that moisture leads to mold and mildew growth, which are dangerous for humans and pets, to make you realize this is a serious issue. Our Green Restoration drying and dehumidification specialists can help you prevent any problems caused by water leaks and floods.

Water Removal

All excess water has to be removed. We use powerful pumps that can remove water from any area and powerful industrial vacuums to reach all the hard-to-reach areas. 

While you may think that ventilation is enough, you should never skip the water removal step. Ventilation alone is way less effective and the process takes way longer. Also, the risk of mold developing is too high.

Evaporation

After all sitting water was completely removed, affected areas remain damp. This is when we have to use high-power fans. This increases airflow and evaporation. A specialized fan, which is rarely available for homeowners, will dry out all the excessive dampness. Such machines use a lot less energy than the standard home fans, and they run very efficiently. This means you do your part to protect the environment while working with Green Restoration. 

During evaporation, we also carefully monitor air temperature. This is because when the air is warmer, water evaporates faster. A steady temperature between 70 and 90 degrees is usually maintained. Only in extreme situations, we choose to go over 90 degrees.

Dehumidification

This is particularly important when water stood in an area for a long time. After following the steps mentioned above, we install dehumidifiers so they can draw in the moist air and cool it down. Vapor is practically transformed back into water. Then, the water is collected to be disposed of. This extra dry out step protects all materials in your home since vapor will not transform into extra moisture that enters carpets or similar surfaces.

Other Considerations

Various different things can impact the dry out procedure. Drying and dehumidification should never be taken lightly. Even the time of the year when the damage happens will have an impact on the process. Even so, the necessary steps are always the same. However, how they are carried out can create a world of difference. 

Green Restoration urges you to contact us whenever you need to perform drying and dehumidification repairs because when you do not, major complications can appear. You might end up having to deal with decay, rust, rot, and dangerous black mold.

After any water damage, your main focus must be safety. You should ask yourself if it is safe to stay in your house. Look out for electrical hazards and wet materials in the house that can cause slipping.

Once you’ve decided on whether it is safe in the house, you can move on with the dos and don’ts of water damage.

What To Do After A Flooding

  • Remove any excess water using a mop

  • Wipe the water from wooden furniture after removing table top items and lamps

  • Remove any wet cushions or upholstery

  • Turn the air conditioner on so that it gets completely dry

  • Move any art objects you have to a dry and safe place

  • Gather any loose items present on the floor

  • If you have coloured rugs, then remove them from the wet carpets

What To Not Do After A Flooding

  • Don’t leave any wet fabric in place

  • Do not leave magazines and books or other items on the floor

  • Do not use your household vacuum to remove the water

  • Avoid using household appliances or the television

  • Do not turn the ceiling fixture when it is wet, and do not go in the room where the ceiling is saggy

Water mitigation can come from many different sources and events, but there is something common with them all. The first thing is that water damage is one of the main reasons many house owners claim insurance every year. It is also one of the reasons why the insurance rate keeps on rising.

The second thing in common is that, if ignored, it can lead to hazards, so handling it right away is very important. Water damage restoration and mitigation services also include:

  • Water and fire mitigation

  • Water cleanup

  • Floor water mitigation

  • Water damage repairing

  • Floor restoration and water remediation

The amount of damage that occurred in your house determines the time it will take for the restoration to take place. Usually, a normal-sized room takes 72 hours for drying. Once it gets dry, it can take a week for mildew and mold removal, and then comes construction, which takes another couple of weeks.

The entire process can take anywhere from two weeks to a month, depending on the damage caused.
