It can feel overwhelming when your property suffers from water related damage. Putting your head down and letting your home air dry might seem like a good solution, unfortunately it’s one of the worst things you can do.

Professional Structural Drying

Structural Drying Tacoma
For complete structural drying, Tacoma weather can put up a fight, but our scientifically devised drying methods don’t let it stand a chance. We only employ IICRC certified technicians with the experience to perfectly execute the structural drying process. This saves you time, money, and stress. Our drying process always begins with immediate water extraction.

The Principles of Rapid Structural Drying:

  1. Extraction – Our methods utilize some of the most efficient drying techniques available to achieve productive structural drying in Tacoma. We use special hardware in order to quickly and wholly extract liquid water. Removing it before it vaporizes is 1200 times more efficient. This reduces the need for certain equipment in later steps. Removing as much liquid as possible also saves time, and we can even extract it from cushions and carpets.
  2. Air Flow – Once all the water that can be removed has been, we set up air movers and high velocity fans. Air moisture affects structural drying, Tacoma can be particularly wet and our equipment is designed to evaporate water in environments high in moisture. Equipment advances have made this process easier and faster than ever.
  3. De-humidification – De-humidifiers are an integral piece of the process. These pull the moisture out of the air moved by theĀ air-flow system. Without them moisture will bond and soak into attractive materials. Without proper dehumidifying drying is extended and mold growth as well as structural damage can occur. Our dehumidifiers use low grain refrigerant and are more effective than non-low grain alternatives.
  4. Temperature – We exercise careful temperature control throughout the drying process. Humidifiers are most effective between 70 and 90 degrees. Ensuring they maintain effectiveness is integral so we we create separate drying chambers throughout your property. Keeping air temperature at 80 – 90 for the initial 36 – 48 hours of structural drying can drastically reduce the drying time in a structure.
