CENTRAL OREGON WATER DAMAGE DRYING EQUIPMENT RENTALS

The Drying Process

 

If you have a flooded house or home with water damage, a water mitigation team is going to want to dry out your home as quickly as possible to reduce damage and potential mold issues.

According to best practices set forth by the IICRC S500, the standard of care set by the governing professionals of restorative drying, the best course of action involves controlling airflow, temperature and humidity to increase the rate of evaporation.

 

The Purpose of Drying Equipment for Wet Homes

 

We use our equipment to dry wet carpet and pad, wet hardwood flooring, flooded laminate and vinyl. We can also use specialty drying equipment to dry wet cabinets and wet spaces in wall cavities and moisture behind walls. We also have commercial drying equipment to dry out water in crawl spaces and under homes.

We use the following drying equipment for wet homes below to dry wet floors and materials to quickly reduce water damage. This information is especially useful for insurance agents and adjusters.
