This will help to carryout other drying processes once water removed from home. If water damage has happened due to small leakages and there is no water accumulated then you can skip using pump. After this we need to us air mover or industrial fans. Air mover is equipment which release high pressure directed air flow which help to dry wet walls, floor and carpet quickly. Quantity and capacity of air mover need to select depending on size of site and nature of damage. If site is industrial use then it is recommended to use hydroxyl generators. Hydroxyl generators since industrial site might have chemical spill, gas released which can make air hazardous. It is powerful machine with adjustment air speed, pressure control and washable filters which can work in any situation.
Why dehumidifier is important in water damage restoration process?
Dehumidifier and especially commercial dehumidifier plays very important role in water damage restoration process. After application of water pump, air movers and hydroxyl generator, still there will be wetness in area. And most importantly wetness in air which is know as humidity in air is still there. This high humidity in air causes bad smell, development of fungus and slow drying of area. Dehumidifier reduces humidity in air and helps to dry area very quickly. Also once humidity is less then development of fungus will stop. Along with dehumidifier to make air cleaner, air scrubber can be use.
