If you need your structure dry, then PHJ Services know how to get the job done with dehumidification.
Surfaces, like carpet and underlay absorb moisture quickly and it is often much easier to get the water out by using the reverse of how the water got in there in the first place. Yes, by sucking or extracting the water out of the carpet, the majority is removed relatively quickly. However, surfaces like concrete and brick, where it takes a considerable amount of time for the water to penetrate the substance, become very hard to dry because of the same process. It holds the moisture more readily than a porous surface like foam underlay.
Accordingly you have to use more than just air movement to complete the drying process of hard surfaces like concrete and solid timber.
For that reason we use a lot of dehumidifiers in association with air movement to make the air space surrounding the wet material much dryer and so the principle of ‘wet will always go to dry’ applies.
So the dryer you can make the air, the quicker you can get your structure dry. Dehumidification, or removal of moisture from the air, allows you to do this much quicker .
Bear in mind a hard surface will never dry to the speed of something porous, such as carpet and underlay. Hard surface require prolonged periods of dry air to suck all the moisture from the substance.
PHJ Services knows all about the best way to get your hard surfaces and structure dry and have a Desiccant Dehumidifier to even make that process more efficient. Check out the Water Damage page or contact the professional and friendly PHJ Services team today to find out more.
