Step 1 : Extraction
Extraction is the primary step in removing water from a structure. 95% of water is removed in this step. H2O Drying uses an extreme extractor with a water claw to remove water from carpeted surfaces. This combination is the highest rated method for removing water. It extracts not only the carpet, but also the carpet pad. This is the first step in the world’s fastest drying system.
Step 2 : Evaporation
The key to the worlds fastest drying system is our ability to provide hot, dry airflow to affected areas. When drying carpet hot air is pushed under the carpet and above the pad. Heat radiates to dry the carpet, pad, and subfloor. It also escapes at the edge of the carpet and dries the wall, baseboard, and sill plates.
When H2O Drying use the hot airflow method it will dries carpet and pad in 24 hours or less. Due to the rapid drying and high heat delivered we eliminate concerns over mold growth and odor.
Step 3 : Ventilation/dehumidification
As water is evaporated it is critical that all of that moisture be removed from the room. The more humid the air is above the affected materials the slower drying occurs. To overcome this H2O Drying sets up a thermostatically controlled exhaust to remove excess heat and humidity.
While in some cases dehumidifiers are used exhaust is the preferred method. The exhaust we construct on site creates a river of air, exchanging hot wet air for cooler dry air. This allows us to remove gallons of moisture per day instead of only pints.
