Best Dehumidification Services in the City
Dehumidification is simply the process of normalizing the humidity of a room by removing excess moisture from the air, resulting in conditions that are unfriendly to dust mites, mold, and other allergen-causing organisms usually brought on by leaks.
This is a step after the water removal process. Simply put, we can’t start drying your property while water is still entering and spreading throughout it.
Just a heads up: the dehumidification procedure can be somewhat inconvenient for homeowners and their families. The reason for this is that it can get quite hot and noisy while it is being done.
Having said that, our pros must perform this step in order to avoid the aforementioned organisms from proliferating. Simply removing water without drying out the damp walls makes no sense, don’t you agree?
Let’s get this done ASAP so you can get back to your daily routine. Call us for dehumidification services today!
What Equipment is Required for Dehumidification
Dehumidification requires quite a bit of equipment, including:
- Wet/Dry Vacuums: Also known as shop vacuums, these are versatile cleaning devices designed to handle both wet and dry debris. They work by using a combination of suction and filtration to remove a wide range of materials from various surfaces, including flooded rooms.
- Dehumidifiers: These draw in humid air from the surrounding environment through a fan. The incoming humid air is directed over a set of cold coils. These coils are kept at a lower temperature than the air’s dew point, causing the moisture in the air to condense into water droplets. The water droplets that form on the cold coils are collected in a drip tray or a collection bin located below the coils. After the moisture is removed from the air, the now drier air passes over a separate set of warm coils or a condenser. This process warms the air back to its original temperature, so it exits the dehumidifier as dry, warm air. This process is repeated for hours or days until the air is completely dry.
- High-Volume Fans: Also known as high-speed fans or industrial fans, they work by moving a large volume of air at a higher speed than typical household fans. These fans are designed to create strong air currents and provide effective cooling and ventilation in flooded environments, and they are perfect for targeting especially damp spots that dehumidifiers wouldn’t be able to completely dry out on their own.
- Moisture Meters: As the name suggests, moisture meters are used to measure the moisture content or water content in various materials, such as wood, building materials, soil, and other substances. There are two primary types of moisture meters – resistance and capacitance meters.

How to Dry Out a Flooded Room
We use the aforementioned equipment to do this.
The dehumidifier is placed in flooded regions with a lot of moisture, and we set the goal humidity level to be between 30 and 50%, which is the healthiest range for a home.
We keep a tight eye on the water tank after turning on the dehumidifier and empty it as needed.
We deliberately deploy air movers in specific moist regions to speed up the drying process.
We will work the hardest to help extract all moisture out of your drywall, insulation, flooring, and other materials so that we can prevent them from deteriorating past the point of requiring a replacement.
