Despite their solid appearance, buildings can be fragile, especially when it comes to water and flood damage. Taking advantage of professional building drying equipment will ensure your property, whether domestic or commercial, has the best chance of recovering from water damage.
We’ve outlined below some of the main reasons you should invest in professional building drying services:
Professional building drying equipment is designed to work in both small and large spaces, while dealing with large volumes of water and moisture. Compared with domestic appliances which are meant for minimal water and moisture issues, professional building drying equipment is specifically manufactured to deal with large-scale water damage, often as a result of a flood. It can be used in domestic settings, but also in commercial spaces like factories and warehouses, offices, community centres or other large buildings.
As well as being able to efficiently dry large areas, professional building drying equipment will also get the job done a lot faster. A win-win for your home or business. The quicker you can dry your property, the lower the chance of long-term damage caused by excessive damp and moisture. Taking swift action also appeases most insurance companies who will stipulate in their policy that pay-outs will only be made if professional help is sought.
Using domestic equipment for reducing day-to-day moisture, such as a simple dehumidifier, is perfectly fine for keeping your house fresh and free from mould and mildew. However, if your property has been affected by floodwater, a leak, or other unexpected water ingress, professional equipment will be essential. Despite your building looking dry, water can seep into cracks and crevices, soak into plasterboard and floorboards, or damage soft furnishings. Professional building drying equipment will ensure the entire building is properly dried, not just what you can see on the surface.
After a flood, it can be difficult to know whether your building is completely dry or not. As mentioned, water can be soaked into many unseen places, causing long-term structural damage such as rot, or health issues such as providing the perfect environment for mould growth.
If you’ve sought help from a professional building drying company, they’ll always make sure your building is left dry by using additional equipment to monitor moisture levels. Moisture diagnosis and damp analysis helps to determine whether excess moisture is still lingering in the property which would indicate water is still being held within the structure or contents.
Using a building drying company to assist you with water damage doesn’t necessarily mean taking advantage of the latest equipment or building drying techniques. It’s important to ensure you’re using a professional company like CPL t/a Rainbow Restoration who have nearly 20 years’ experience in the industry and are backed by a range of industry-recognised accreditations.
Alongside this, knowing your chosen provider invests heavily in the latest building drying equipment is a must. At CPL t/a Rainbow Restoration, we’ve recently invested in a range of new building drying equipment and moisture detection equipment so we can help homes and businesses in and around London and the South East with water damage restoration. Recently, we’ve used the Aerial AERCUBE, the very latest in pressure drying equipment and much faster than traditional methods, to support the water damage restoration process at a wide range of premises across the South East.
Not all water damage is the same and often different buildings or even different areas within a building require different building drying methods and equipment. Working with a professional building drying company, your building will reap the benefits of a range of tried and tested equipment – rather than having to invest in your own – resulting in a much more cost-effective restoration process.
