Removing Trapped Moisture

When building a house, many problems may arise, including improper sealing, which can result in penetrating water leakages in areas that cannot be seen. If your house has shown signs of moisture damage, it’s imperative that the problem is addressed as soon as possible. Water damage can cause a building numerous issues including:

  • Microbial amplification, leading to mold growth
  • Warped wood
  • Swelling of materials
  • Structural instability
  • Increased utility bills

The Science Of In-Place Drying

Drying house foundations, joists, decking, sub-floors, and other integral structural components is essential to the integrity of your building or home and should not be ignored. It’s important to note that the older and more porous a wood product is, the more moisture will be absorbed.

Drying a room too fast or using too much heat can further damage material if the level of humidity is too high. A higher humidity increases the number of water molecules in the air which then has a tendency to be reabsorbed into the affected area.

Disaster Kleenup Services has industrial-sized dehumidifiers and moisture extractors to completely dry out your structures before microbial amplification has a chance take over.
