It’s essential to contain water damage in a building by sealing off the afflicted area as quickly as possible to avoid outside air or other sources adding additional humidity to the situation.
In most cases, it’s beneficial to add heat to the room to increase the evaporation of both humidity and water. This is especially true if the water damage occurred recently and the water has not had time to penetrate deep into walls, floors, and other parts of the building structure.
If the water has had time to penetrate deep into the building structure you need to use a larger dehumidification capacity to get quick results. In the image shown here, we used our mobile desiccant dehumidifier trailer to quickly dry out a large-scale water loss that occurred in a busy university’s student library and resource center.
Refrigerant and low grain refrigerants (LGR) are the standard dehumidification units used in water damaged homes and/or basements to lower humidity levels. Refrigerants are the most effective dehumidifiers in warm and humid conditions.
Single Source has a large variety of desiccant dehumidifiers fit for every job. Desiccants perform where other units in the industry cannot properly operate, such as in cold temperatures. Desiccants generally work to their maximum in large open areas and have capabilities of drying out structural materials such as wood, concrete, plaster, etc. much faster than traditional refrigerant dehumidifiers.
This can reduce drying costs and rebuild costs significantly. Examples of ideal locations for the use of these dehumidifiers are schools, multi-story homes or buildings and large commercial buildings. Single Source can accommodate residential, commercial and industrial buildings with a fleet of Desiccants ranging from 2000 – 15,000 cubic feet per minutes (cfm).
