Most people who call Steamtic of South AL are looking for dehumidification services, usually following storm damage, plumbing damage, or even fire damage. However, did you know that there is a wrong way to dry a home out?
If an interior space isn’t dried out correctly, it could have lasting adverse health effects, and even future structural issues. Following a flood, a storm, or other event that adds more moisture than usual, black mold growth becomes a major problem.
Why Do I Need Dehumidification?
Dehumidification helps to restore your home to the right level of moisture for your home. Standing water and lingering moisture can make your house, and you, sick.
Following a storm, homes and commercial spaces can remain without power for weeks. In the meantime, that still, moist air continues to allow germs, mold spores, and other contaminants to spread in an environment where they thrive.
Protect Your Belongings
Even if your home is lucky enough not to develop mold issues, your belongings are still at stake. Electronics, paperback books, even portraits are no match for a hot, muggy home.
Closets can become especially humid without a functioning air conditioner or other source of circulating air. Here, your clothes can stay moist, where mildew can leave them unsafe to wear.
Even furniture is at risk to overly moist conditions. Leather sofas, upholstered couches, cloth bar stools, and other furniture can become sogged out, where they begin to deteriorate.
If your house or commercial building is still retaining its increased moisture, you’ll need a dedicated dehumidification team to properly extract it. Otherwise, it can remain within your carpet, its padding, drywall, wood surfaces, and practically everywhere else. If your home isn’t back to normal humidity levels before you replace hard wood floors, carpet, cabinets, drywall and repaint, then all your repairs will not meet the quality standards required for a proper restoration job. It can actually be a cause to repeat the entire process.
Our portable dehumidification fans use flexible tube vents attached to a high-powered commercial fan unit. This draws the air towards it, where the current leads the damp air away from the structure. This helps to quickly dry your home or building out while preventing lingering damage or health hazards.
