Water Remediation Process
Raise the Temperature
We raise the temperature of water damaged materials to increase vapor pressure.
Increase air flow
To carry the vapor outside and speed up drying time, we increase the airflow of the water damaged area.
As the last step, we activate low-pressure dehumidifiers to drop the humidity levels and trap vapor molecules.
Our highly trained, water remediation experts utilize moisture meters hygrometers and thermal imaging cameras to detect moisture throughout your property caused from water damage.
WATER EXTRACTION & DRYING
When your property suffers flood damage or a broken pipe, we utilize both truck mounted & portable equipment to remediate water from the property. Once this is complete, our water remediation cleanup team sets up state-of-the-art equipment to create ideal drying conditions so that building materials are dried efficiently to avoid risk of secondary damages.
This process shows a visual picture so temperatures over a large area can be compared. Our water remediation team utilizes this technique as a non-destructive testing method to determine areas of water damage in your property.
Some building materials are unable to be dried due to excessive water damage, therefore they must be removed. We evaluate your property and determine what items need to be removed, ensuring the least amount of damage to surrounding areas as possible.
