Commercial Rapid Structural Drying

If your commercial property has been affected by a flood or water leak, it’s essential to properly dry the area to prevent further structural damage, mold, and mildew. Water damage of any magnitude demands timely and professional assistance, especially in conditions such as:

  • A pool of standing water after a leak or flood
  • Saturated carpets or upholstered furniture
  • Stained, wet drywall that feels mushy to the touch and is sagging
  • Water that has been sitting for more than a day
  • Buildup of water behind crawl spaces or walls

Fortunately, the experts at Rainbow Restoration® provide safe commercial rapid structural drying covering water extraction, active evaporation, dehumidification, and temperature control to restore your business to its best possible condition.

Rapid Structural Drying Service and Process

Don’t let your building succumb to additional water damage — give us a call or request an appointment online!

Rapid structural drying is the process of removing excess and trapped moisture from building materials like carpets and upholstered items and from behind walls, ceilings, and floors.

Structural drying consists of four parts: water extraction, airflow, structural dehumidification, and temperature regulation.

  • Water extraction:

    Rainbow Restoration service professionals use state-of-the-art equipment to extract water from your soft surfaces using powerful industrial vacuums.

  • Airflow (active evaporation):

    After floods or leaks, wood framing, drywall, and flooring are usually saturated with water. Our professionals evaporate the water using industrial air movers that project a highly focused, powerful air stream for drying walls, wood framing, carpeting, and other soft surfaces. For instance, a 10' x 10' room will require four air movers to completely dry the room.

  • Structural dehumidification:

    Although air movers can dry out the moisture from affected areas, there still could be remnants of vapor in the air. This is where the dehumidification process comes in. Dehumidifiers work to extract moisture out of the air, put it into a liquid state, and remove it from your structure. Without proper dehumidification, moisture is absorbed back into surfaces like carpets and upholstered furniture, which can cause further damage from mold growth.

  • Temperature regulation:

    Our professionals maintain the appropriate temperature in areas riddled with water damage. The ideal temperature to dry out most items is 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 32 degrees Celsius) to prevent mold from forming..
