Structural Drying Methods

Are several structural drying methods but the main types are:

In general, it is considered much more effective to take away liquid water than to dry it up and eliminate the vapour. As a result of extraction methods, specialized “water vacuums” and similar equipment like these are used to suck up moisture that might remain on cushions, carpets, or other such items. This method of structural drying is one of the most useful methods because it helps to salvage different materials and furniture of your house.

  • Air Flow/Evaporation

Of course are some small areas that water vacuums can’t reach or is unable to be fully removed directly. To prevent this problem, high-velocity air is used. Using high-powered air movers are strategically spaced and angled to get maximum coverage so no water can escape.

  • Dehumidification

If you have seen that evaporating moisture won’t do much if the water vapour is re-absorbed by your property easily you can choose the problem with dehumidifiers. They will help to speed up the structural drying process and to serve as one way to restrict any possible mould growths.
