When you’re dealing with flooding, a broken pipe, or another water emergency, time is of the essence. The longer the water stays in your carpet, hardwood flooring, and walls, the more likely you are to see the damage. How can you get rid of insidious dampness? The answer is dehumidification.

What is Dehumidification?
Dehumidification is the process of extracting moisture from the air. Why does it matter if the air is wet or not? Even if a room doesn’t have any standing water, it’s still at risk for developing mold and mildew if there’s enough humidity. Basically, if you’re only drying surfaces, you’re only doing half the job.
Having a dry environment is also essential to keeping your air quality at a high standard. If you’ve experienced flooding as a result of extreme weather, your home and furniture may contain harmful bacteria that flourish in wet environments. Making sure your air is dry deprives these bacteria of the conditions they need to thrive.
What is the Process?
How does dehumidifying work? It’s part of the larger drying process:
We make a thorough inspection of the area to locate all sources of moisture, including those hidden in walls, ceilings, and floors. To do this, we use state-of-the-art equipment that can detect lingering water without having to destroy structures.
Once we know where the moisture is, we can create an effective plan of attack. This usually involves bringing in heavy-duty vacuuming, evaporating, and dehumidifying equipment.
We use industrial-strength vacuums to remove water even from hard-to-reach places. To address any lingering moisture, we use evaporators to make surfaces dry out faster.
Once we’ve verified that your surfaces are dry, we use dehumidifiers to reduce moisture in the air. These machines pull in the air with their fans and cool it, so water droplets form. These droplets are then stored in their reservoirs, and the cool, dry air is blown out into the room.
What are the Benefits?
Dehumidifying offers several benefits:
- Eliminates musty odors that often accompany dampness
- Protects décor and furnishings from the moisture
- Improves overall air quality
