Water Extraction Drying
After the water removal step, your floors and walls may look dry at first glance, but they are usually still wet to the touch we will use specialized moisture meters to detect further damage. Most building materials, like drywall and wood, are porous and will retain significant water. The retained water will cause these materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage.
Drying / Dehumidifiers
All City Water Damage will manipulate temperature and relative humidity to remove the remaining moisture. They use specialized equipment, including industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, to remove water retained by building materials and other hard-to-access moisture. They’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.
