Homes and businesses that are affected by flooding or water damage need to be dried immediately to prevent significant damage. Excess water and flooding are a problem because water spreads very easily through porous building materials which can quickly result in widespread damage. If the affected materials are not properly dried, they may experience structural damage or become affected by mold growth. Reacting quickly to water damage and starting the drying process is the best way to limit the spread of the damage.
At Philip White Water Restoration, we provide dehumidification and structural drying in Ocoee, FL to dry homes and businesses that have been affected by water damage or flooding. Our technicians will thoroughly dry all affected materials using advanced water extraction and dehumidification equipment. You can trust that we will leave your home or building 100 percent dry.
Water damage needs immediate attention because the water will continue to spread through porous materials until it is removed from the property. As the water spreads, it will cover a larger area and cause damage to the affected building materials and furnishings. Our professionals will work to contain the spread of the water as well as dry the affected materials using advanced water extraction and dehumidification equipment.
We will take these actions immediately when we arrive to your property:
- We will assess the extent of the damage and spread of the water.
- Based on our assessment, we will create a drying and dehumidification plan.
- We will place dehumidifiers and other drying equipment strategically throughout the property.
The following steps are part of our drying and dehumidification process:
Electronic Moisture Detection
Our technicians use electronic moisture detection meters that will detect how deep the water has been absorbed in porous building materials like wood and drywall, flooring, and building cavities. The non-invasive nature of the moisture meters allows us to get an accurate detection of the water absorption without damaging your walls or ceiling. We can create an effective plan to dry the affected areas once we determine the extent of the problem.
Before we can start drying the affected areas and materials, we need to remove any standing water from the property. Our technicians use water extraction equipment which can remove any amount of water including standing water.
We will thoroughly dry the affected areas and materials by strategically placing dehumidification equipment around your property to create airflow. This process will extract moisture from building materials and furnishings, leaving them fully dry.
