What Is Structural Drying And How Does It Work?

Structural drying plays a pivotal role in averting the growth of mould, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms within a building. Without adequate structural drying, moisture can seep deeply into the structure, causing lasting damage and persistent musty odours. At Water Damage & Restoration Services, our approach extends beyond surface drying—we meticulously dry behind skirtings and framework to curtail mould growth on plaster and various building materials. Through our water damage restoration services, we prioritize safeguarding the well-being of occupants by preventing the spread of hazardous contaminants.

The Water Damage Restoration team utilises specialised equipment and techniques to eliminate water and moisture from your property. The process initiates with the removal of standing water, followed by the deployment of potent fans and dehumidifiers. These tools penetrate deeply into building materials, including skirtings, plaster, and timber framework, effectively extracting excess moisture to deter mould growth and musty odours. Employing thermal imaging technology, we meticulously detect and monitor moisture levels, ensuring comprehensive drying across all impacted areas.
