Structural Drying Services London
Like water extraction, structural drying is an integral part of the water damage repair and restoration process. The structural drying process isolates and removes excess water using a combination of thermal imaging technology, dehumidification and increased air movement provided by industrial drying fans. It aids in cleaning mold and removing moisture from the following areas:
- Plaster Walls
- Wood & Metal Studs
- Hardwood Floors
- Concrete Block
- Electrical Components
- Inhibiting Mould & Mildew Growth
- Preserving Unaffected Areas
Structural Drying lessens moisture levels in the immediate environment as well as in the structure itself, preventing mould and bacteria from developing and minimizing potential damage to computers, electrical operating systems and building utilities.
In cases where rising dampness has occurred, intensive structural drying should be accompanied by a thorough damp-proof course. This will properly waterproof areas which have previously been affected by water damage, and prevent the problem from occurring again in the future. A damp-proof course involves the insertion of damp resistant breathable plastic sheets at strategic structural points to prevent any latent water or evaporated moisture from re-entering your property.
