DEHUMIDIFICATION FOR WATER DAMAGE CLEAN UP
When a facility has flood or water damage, however minor, it is important to remove the moisture immediately in order to prevent mold growth. NJ Water and Mold specialize in moisture control and dehumidification by locating the source of the water penetration, mapping the moisture in the facility and developing a drying plan.
Building dehumidification necessitates quick response and material drying experience, which separates our Professional Teams from the competition! We begin by removing moisture from the air, which speeds up the process of removing moisture from affected items, preventing future mold growth and allowing you to reopen your facility quickly! In conjunction with fans and directed air movement, our desiccant dehumidification moisture control process removes moisture from the air of affected facilities.
Our high volume desiccant dehumidifiers will direct very dry air into areas affected by water or moisture. Fast drying minimizes the potential of hazardous microbial growth and further structural damage and helps you get back in business as quickly as possible!!!!!
HARDWOOD FLOOR DRYING
Hardwood Floor drying requires special attention and a scientific approach. Water will cause your floor to cup, warp, and buckle if it is not extracted immediately. One of many additional concerns that may arise from water damage is mold which can grow in floor crevasses and in subfloors. Before you start ripping your wet flooring out, call us, we may save it for you.
Using specialty state-of-the-art equipment, our team will measure the humidity, temperature, and moisture levels in the wood to determine the best course of action. Our cutting-edge equipment for extracting water from wet hardwood floors is a must. This equipment gently pulls water from the hardwood floor and pushes dry air in to remove any moisture that has been left behind, allowing the hardwood floor to settle properly and preventing mold from growing.
The myth of ripping and removing water-damaged walls and ceilings is still sadly being endorsed by many water mitigation companies. This is unfortunate because that concept does a disservice to those who are affected by floods and other forms of water damage. We are committed to educating the public by informing them of options that there is a better way of addressing water damage and removal.
The time has come to abandon the rip and remove mentality. With advanced drying methods we can dry and restore property with little or no damage. Our innovative, cutting-edge approach to drying and saving flood and water damaged properties also extends to other areas of flood and water damaged properties such as Hardwood flooring
If water enters structural cavities, it will create trapped pockets of moisture and saturation. If wet walls and wet paneling are left alone, they can cause a slew of structural issues.. As a result, undetected saturation may cause odor, splitting or deterioration of walls, and further damage may cause collapsing of wet walls and mold growth. Wet walls create structural concerns which should be addressed immediately.
When Drying walls with water damage our trained techs use specialty equipment that injects your walls with dry air pushing the moisture out. It is important to understand the structure of a building to know where and how to inject walls. There is so much going on behind walls, and for that reason our technicians are trained to expect unexpected and approach wall drying procedures with great caution.
You don’t have to rip your walls out! We may save them! Just ask our estimators to explain how we can do it and do it safely.
Undetected moisture behind and inside kitchen or other cabinets after a flood or other types of water damage will cause your wet cabinets to rot, delaminate, split, or crack, and repairing these can be costly. De-lamination is most likely to occur because the majority of cabinets are made of plywood or pressed wood. Leaving your cabinets wet for an extended period of time will result in mildew and mold build up, as well as material damage, and the only option will be to replace the walls and cabinets to prevent accidents or the mold and mildew from growing.
When it is determined that the cabinets can be salvaged we dry, wet cabinets using the least invasive and most effective techniques. Our teams specialize in drying techniques using in-place injection equipment to dry your cabinets inside out. High-power injector equipment not only dries cabinets but also the walls behind them by pushing the air into affected materials, preventing deterioration of your valued assets. Our trained technicians use the most up-to-date commercial dehumidification and air purifying equipment available, following all guidelines for indoor air quality.
Our technicians are specially trained to look for hidden water damage. Water can flow or be captured in the most unexpected places. If left undetected, it can quickly escalate into future issues. Moisture inspections are used to identify all wet materials, which include:
- Infrared Technology
- Electronic Moisture Detection Instruments
When determining what it will take to dry your property, we use a mathematical formula based on many different variables including:
- Impacted square footage?
- Impacted cubic footage?
- What is wet?
- Are materials saturated or damp?
- How many air exchanges are required?
WATER DAMAGE MITIGATION SERVICES
Our certified technicians assess the water damage and begin property and area water removal and drying immediately after a flood or water damage occurs. To prevent mold growth, moisture levels are measured and tracked, and contents, furniture, and wet carpet are removed for repair, cleaning, or disposal.
