Optimised drying of water damage

When drying water and moisture damage there are a range of different drying techniques available. Each incidence of damage is unique and the solution to the problem is almost never the same. This depends on what the damage looks like, if it is small or large, what type of material and building construction is to be dried and not least what the requirements are for drying time, noise levels, energy consumption etc.

Causes

Water damages can have a variety of causes: floodings, burst pipes and heavy rainfall.Water for firefighting, a washing machine or high humidity can cause water damages as well.

Corroventa’s contribution

When there is water in the house or walls are damp swift action is required. Floodings or water damages do not need to result in a catastrophe. With the right expertise and the right handling of the water damage, it is possible to prevent a total catastrophe. This would usually involves large costs for time-consuming demolition and rebuilding work. With our knowledge we can obtain a fast drying and dehumidification process and thus ensure an efficient water damage restoration.

 

 

Drying Methods

  • Pressure drying

    Pressure drying is one of the most effective and fastest available methods for drying layered structures.

  • Suction drying

    Suction drying is always used as the first step prior to pressure drying.

  • Push-pull drying

    The push-pull method is an effective drying method where the risk of particles from the construction spreading to the air in the living environment is minimized.

  • Floor joist drying

    One of the most effective ways of drying insulation in floor joists or a framed construction is to use a low-pressure fan and dehumidifier in combination.

  • Plastic enclosure

    To speed the drying process, a limited surface where the damage occurred can be wrapped in plastic.

  • Room dehumidification

    A dehumidifier is placed in a room where the damage occurred, and it blows dry air into the whole room, which dries all the surfaces.

  • Construction dehumidification

    It is important in connection with new construction or renovation to dry out and check the humidity levels in the construction.
