Here we show you the principles of drying from water damage:

 

Water Extraction

The primary step of the drying process is to put away all the excess water from the affected rooms. CPR24 Restoration uses the best technology and techniques of water extractors and vacuums. All excess water is extracted from floors and all wet furniture is moved from the affected areas.

 

Evaporation

After a flood, your drywall, wood framing, and subfloors are typically saturated with water which needs to be dried as to not cause further damage. This happens with evaporation. We use industrial air movers that move thousands of cubic feet of air per minute. Also, we take care to place one of these air-movers as close of wall space to maximize evaporation.

 

Dehumidification

After turning water into vapors there is elevated humidity in the space. So, CPR24 Restoration uses industrial Dehumidifiers. They are used to remove moisture from the air and turn them back into water that is removed from the property.

 

Temperature

The temperature has a big effect on the drying process. We recommend turning up the heat. Proper temperature control will increase the drying rate. Restoration equipment also emits heat so that contributes to the drying and evaporation processes.
