Having IICRC certified technicians in water restoration, Elite Restoration prides itself in extending beyond standard industry certifications. We utilize the E3 metric, (Enthalpy, Evaluation, Evaporation). This is a science-based metric to quantify the type of drying equipment in your home. The old way of doing it was a standard metric that was counterintuitive for promoting evaporation and drying the structure efficiently.
Water extraction and removal on its own is not enough to remove all of the moisture from your home or business after you've experienced water damage. Water is pervasive and remaining moisture can hide behind the walls, inside the ceiling, under the flooring, and even inside your HVAC system where it can wreak havoc if not properly dried out. Our trained and certified technicians have the equipment necessary to detect this hidden water. We're ready to handle your structural drying emergency 24/7 and have the expertise to provide expert drying and dehumidification services with high-velocity air movers and dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air and your structure. Your property is one of your greatest investments, and with so much at stake, you can trust Elite Restoration to help you get things back to pre-loss conditions as soon as possible so that you can keep moving forward.
Structural drying is the removal of excess moisture from building materials. The term structural in this case can be somewhat confusing for the uninitiated because it doesn't necessarily always mean materials that are part off the building structure, but to the parts of the building that are necessary to dry without the need for extensive demolition.
There are multiple aspects of the drying process that are used in combination to efficiently and effectively dry a property. Water extraction is the physical removal of excess water which can look like pumping out standing water or extracting water from a carpet. Air movement is integral to the drying process. Without proper air circulation water will not evaporate and will continue to saturate the surfaces where it sits. Not only does this slow the drying process and cause more damage to the excess materials, it can create the potential for mold and other microbial growth. Finally, dehumidification is one of the most important parts of the drying process. Dehumidifiers are used to collect excess water vapor by pulling it from the air. This helps pull water out of porous surfaces and other trapped spaces.
There are many kinds of equipment that are important to complete drying of a water damage. At Elite Restoration, our knowledgeable staff utilizes the best equipment available to ensure your home is completely taken care of.
Air movers, more commonly recognized as fans, come in different shapes and sizes. Each job is unique and will require different numbers and sizes of air movers. Our professionals have the knowledge to create the appropriate combination of fans and other equipment to effectively dry your home.
Dehumidifiers are integral to the drying process. hey pull excess water from the air and from building materials to ensure complete drying. Like fans, there are many different sizes and styles of dehumidifiers that can be used in combination to create the best solution possible for each job's specific needs.
Without meters, restoration professionals cannot determine the extent of the damage nor track the progress of drying. There are varying types of moisture meters, but all of them serve the same function: determine the amount of moisture in the materials that were affected by the water.
As with all insurance related questions, the answer is that it depends on your coverage. Usually, though, the answer is yes. While there are some types of water damages that aren't covered by standard policies or reasons your policy might not cover the damage, if the water damage is covered by your policy the drying process will also be covered.
