Structural Drying

Applied Structure Drying and Dehumidification

MeterAfter the excess water has been thoroughly removed from all the flooring, the structure drying begins. A properly planned building dry-out and dehumidification provides cost reduction, decreases the drying time and reduces the potential of mold growth. The results are simple: the building occupants return to their normal daily routine.

Arizona Fire & Water Restoration, Inc. utilizes a drying method called Applied Structure Drying a.k.a. Vortex Drying a.k.a. Top Down Drying.

What Is Applied Structure Drying?

Applied Structure Drying is the quickest and most thorough way to dry a structure through non-destructive methods.

The first key is to maximize the removal of water from carpet and padding by using a "Hydro-X" Extreme Extractor unit that will remove the water out of the carpet and pad without removing, disturbing or lifting the carpet and padding.

BlowerAfter the extraction process, the next step is to set up turbo drying fans in such a configuration that creates a vortex air flow that draws the moisture out of the flooring and structure.

MeterProper selection and application of dehumidification equipment is the next critical step. Arizona Fire & Water Restoration, Inc. uses high efficiency LGR and desiccant dehumidifiers to remove the moisture in the air.

Daily monitoring, charting and adjusting the drying process will reduce the drying time. Arizona Fire & Water Restoration, Inc. uses Psychrometric charting to take the guess work out of drying every structure. (Psychrometry is the study of atmospheric air and its associated water vapour.) BlowerDaily adjustments of the drying equipment is required for maximum effectiveness.
