All About Structural Drying

Structural drying is not merely about mopping up water; it’s a sophisticated process that aims to restore your property to its pre-damage state. When water infiltrates your walls, floors, and ceilings, it doesn’t just evaporate overnight. Left untreated, it can lead to severe structural issues, mold growth, and compromised safety. A dehumidification method must be used when drying elements for restoration to ensure desired and safe results. In more technical terms, Advanced Structural Drying (ASD) involves the effective and efficient drying of water-damaged buildings and dwellings using comprehensive knowledge and tools. That’s where Innovative Restorations steps in.

The Importance of Structural Drying

Structure drying is a critical step in water damage restoration, and its significance cannot be overstated. Let’s explore why it matters:

Preventing Secondary Damage:

  • Water damage doesn’t stop at the surface. Structural drying prevents secondary damage by removing moisture promptly from walls, ceilings, and floors.
  • Left untreated, damp materials can lead to mold growth, wood rot, and weakened structures. By drying everything thoroughly, you mitigate these risks.

Health and Safety:

  • Excess moisture creates an ideal environment for mold and bacteria to thrive. Mold spores can cause respiratory issues, allergies, and other health problems.
  • Proper structural drying ensures a safe and healthy living or working space for occupants.

Preserving Materials:

  • Water-damaged materials like drywall, wood, and insulation can often be salvaged through effective drying techniques.
  • Replacement is costly and time-consuming. Structural drying saves you money and minimizes disruption.

Mitigating Odors:

  • Damp environments lead to musty odors. Proper drying prevents unpleasant smells from lingering on your property.
  • Nobody wants their home or business to smell like a damp basement!

Reducing Restoration Costs:

  • The longer water remains, the more extensive the damage becomes. Rapid structural drying reduces the need for extensive repairs.
  • It’s a cost-effective solution that prevents unnecessary expenses down the line.

Our Effective Drying Methods for Mitigation

Innovative Restorations employs two primary approaches:

Disruptive Drying Methods

Removal: When water damage occurs, swift removal of wet items is crucial. These items could be anything from soaked carpets to waterlogged furniture. By promptly extracting these materials, we prevent further saturation and minimize the risk of mold growth.

Controlled Airflow: Strong fans and dryers move air, helping things dry faster and making sure no moisture stays hidden in corners or materials. This method is suitable for varying degrees of damage and contamination, from minor leaks to major floods.

Perforation for Evaporation: We use perforation to aid the faster drying of materials like drywall or wooden panels. Small holes are drilled into affected surfaces to allow trapped moisture to escape and aid evaporation. This technique is useful for wallboard or subflooring.

Aggressive or ‘In Place’ Drying

When removing wet items doesn't work, this method works by keeping the items in place and using warm, dry airflow to evaporate moisture. This method is ideal when contamination isn’t a concern (e.g., clean water damage) and when minimizing disruption is essential. By drying items in place, we reduce the need for extensive reconstruction, replacement and cost-effectiveness.
