Water Extraction

After all standing water has been removed, the structure must be thoroughly dried to prevent moisture damage or mold growth. Homeowners sometimes remove standing water themselves, then neglect to have the area professionally dried because the surfaces look dry or feel “dry to the touch.” However, without the proper equipment, it is impossible to determine how much moisture is still within the structure or to draw that moisture out before it cultivates mold or causes other structural damage. Increased moisture in the air after an indoor flood can cause “secondary” damage to drywall, decorative wood, books, artwork and other items, so thorough drying and dehumidification are critical.
