Structural Drying Techniques Can Totally Eliminate Water Damage.
Water damage is an issue that can be controlled if addressed quickly and effectively. Be it from the excessive downpour of rain or a broken pipe, we know that water can generate numerous damages in your residential and commercial places. When water enters a structure, it can start causing damage immediately.
What is Applied Structural Drying?
In its simplest terms, Applied Structural Drying is the process wherein restoration companies utilize a strategy, which saves time, money, and resources when it comes to drying a given space. Before structural drying, most afflicted areas were stripped off from floor to ceiling in order to remove all affected areas. It is time-consuming because it takes time to remove all the damaged materials in your home and then replace them.
Why is it important to remove excess water, you ask? Water that has not been thoroughly removed from your floors, walls, and contents can further damage them. It promotes wood rotting, weakens the structural integrity of your space, and creates perfect places for mold to manifest.
Given the importance of removing the water from your home, it is in your best interest that restoration companies do what they must to protect your home from secondary water damages. With structural drying, the process of drying your home will be faster and cheaper than traditional methods.
What Happens During Structural Drying?
OC Restoration Services follow a set of principles when they are facing a structural drying project:
They must actively extract the water with special tools
Use air movers to evaporate moisture
Dehumidify the air to prevent secondary damages (e.g. wood rotting and mold)
Maintain the ideal temperature for evaporation and dehumidification
They must understand the complexities of construction and how to find and remove water that has migrated into these areas without performing demolition.

Will my insurance company pay to put my home back the way it was?

We had a fire in our house and the walls feel sticky, what is that?
Some fires, such as kitchen fires, or anything containing plastic, or resin, will create a very sticky type of soot that must be cleaned with specific products and applicators.
What happens if something in our home, like our counters or cabinets, need to be removed to get to the mold or water, how do we know our insurance will cover it?
We always make sure we have insurance company approval before performing the work.
Why does everybody make such a big deal about mold?
Most people don’t understand the severity of mold and the types of complications and problems mold can create. And not everyone is allergic to the same mold. Most people don’t realize they have a reaction to mold until it already has happened.
Why do we need to hire a Contents Packing Company to pack our belongings instead of doing it ourselves?
When there is a water, fire or mold loss in your home, homeowners have a lot on their plate and to focus on. Typically your insurance company will approve and cover the cost of an approved Contents company to pack, clean and store your belongings. Many times some of the contents in your home are damaged, so having a professional company document the damage is crucial for your insurance company to cover the loss.
