Experiencing a flood or escape of water is traumatic enough. But when water enters the fill or insulation of a floating floor, wall or ceiling, it can be a particularly stressful time. You’d be forgiven for thinking it’s going to be a costly and disruptive remedial process to fix it. But it doesn’t have to be. Suction drying is a quick and effective solution that minimises disruption without compromising on results.
Ideal Response Suction Drying Process
By using our suction drying process, which takes advantage of industry-leading technology and equipment. We can minimise disruption and help get you back up and running in as little time as possible. By minimising downtime, we save you inconvenience, stress and costs.
When we first begin the water removal process we look to extract any excess water from your property with the use of wet vacs. Wet vacs are able to quickly remove any excess water. After which the suction drying process begins. Once any excess water has been removed the next step is to bore holes into the damp surface. However, if the surface is porous enough this step isn’t required.
Next, the suction drying equipment is put into place and the process is commenced. When the technology is in use it will push dry air from the room into the damp surface. The damp air in return is pushed out of the damp surface. With the use of top of line turbine technology, this damp is air taken out of the property completely.
Used as the initial response when water enters a void – such as the fill of a floating floor – our suction drying method first pumps any excess water out of the construction, allowing the drying process to begin.
This final step is vital in the water removal process. Without the use of a turbine the damp, saturated air will be circulated throughout your property. This could result in more areas of damp or fungal growth. It is essential that you seek a professional suction drying company as soon as the issue first arises.
The benefits of Suction Drying
The rest of the process is similar to that of pressure drying. But unlike other methods, suction drying actually takes dry air from the room, which is then forced through gaps or purposely drilled holes into the damp areas.
Any damp air is then sucked out of the construction before it exits the room through the turbine. This process helps minimise the risk of further damage by stopping any free water from being pushed further into the structure.
As an added benefit, suction drying comes with a 3-step filter. This allows the machine to efficiently clean any dirt, water and dust. Thus protecting the turbine and cleaning the air. Perfect for situations when the amount of fibres and dust entering the room needs to be controlled or minimised.
And if that wasn’t enough, the air can be cleaned further with the use of a HEPA H13 multi-filter. Not only will this clean the air up to 99.95%, but it can also remove any foul, lingering odours.
Consequences of not Suction Drying
There are potentially very serious consequences of not fixing a damp issue. Damp may spread throughout your property if the root cause is not addressed and dealt with. Subsequently, fungi can also grow in your property if damp is allowed to remain.
Mould is more than just an eyesore. Not seeking a suction drying service could potentially lead to damp somewhere down the line. Excess damp and moisture can create an environment in which mould can grow. Mould comes with numerous potential health effects for the inhabitants of the property.
The mould spores that fill the air can cause very serious and potentially life threatening respiratory issues.
Alongside the suction drying service we can also provide you with additional services upon request. If the initial issue is dealt with quickly and correctly then it can mitigate the chances of secondary damage occurring.
However, if secondary issues do surface that are caused by the initial damp problem. Ideal Response have the technicians and industry leading technology to solve them. An example of secondary damage is the musty lingering odour that damp can leave behind. This can be so unpleasant you may not want to remain in the property. Using the patented BioSweep technology we can guarantee a 100% effective odour removal surface. Leaving you property completely free of any unpleasant odours. The BioSweep technology also removes all surface and airborne bacteria and pathogens.
