Commercial Water Removal In Charleston
During Commercial Water Removal Projects In Charleston, Various Drying Techniques Get Utilized
If the office of your business in Charleston is located on the lower level of a building with multiple floors, there is a chance that a pipe burst from a unit above yours could send moisture into your software company's office. Once moisture gets in the interior of your structure, commercial water removal should be conducted by a professional restoration contractor such as SERVPRO as soon as possible.
If moisture is left inside a building for too long, secondary issues related to increased humidity levels and mold growth could arise. During commercial water removal operations in Charleston, our SERVPRO technicians utilize several different procedures to prevent any type of secondary damage to your business's office. To begin, our crew uses heavy-duty extractors to remove any moisture while it is still a liquid. Then, we utilize other industrially-advanced pieces of equipment to conduct the applied structural drying or ASD phase.
During ASD procedures, our SERVPRO team works toward creating an environment that helps speed up the natural drying and evaporation processes. To do this correctly, we set up a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers. The air movers create air circulation to speed up the evaporation of moisture from your office's wet contents and building materials. The dehumidifiers then pull water out from the air and dispense it in liquid form while supplying warm, dry air to be used by the air movers.
When implementing ASD, we know that the angle that air hits dry building materials like your walls makes a difference. If the air movers get placed so that the air gets pushed into your walls directly, then moisture can get pushed further into your building materials. However, when the air movers get placed so that the air coming from them hits walls at a 45-degree angle, the air pushes away wet air close to damp surfaces so that more water can evaporate from the affected items. We also often remove your baseboard and drill holes behind it so that air can get pushed into your wall cavities. When working with offices that have metal wall studs, we can drill more holes in case standing water has built up inside your wall cavities.
When restoring moisture-related damage, we can implement various drying techniques to get the job done in a timely matter. For professional assistance when restoring your business's property after a disaster, call SERVPRO of South & West Charleston at (843) 823-7400 any day of the week.
