Hi there, we’re Orlando’s Water Restoration Specialists. You know, dealing with water damage can be stressful, traumatic, and very expensive. You’re probably worrying right now about just how long it’s going to take to get your life back in order, and exactly what we’re going to go have to do to accomplish that.
While this is hopefully a once in a lifetime event for you we deal with situations like this everyday. Our entire business is built around restoring your property to pre-loss condition, and getting your life back on track as fast as possible. We work with insurance companies all the time and are very familiar with what we need to do to make the process go smoothly for all involved parties. In this video I’ll explain how we’re going to restore your property using the thermal energy system, or Blue Water Damage Restoration, and directed heat drying.
The key to successful restoration is speed, drying out buildings fast reduces the chance for what we call secondary damage. Secondary damage includes things such as mold growth, damaged to structural materials like framing, drywall, or flooring, and damage caused by high humidity to books, papers, artwork, and so on. That’s why we use the most advanced drying equipment and techniques. It’s based on cutting edge drying science and works to to three times faster than conventional drying systems.
Before I explain why the Blue Water Damage Restoration system works so well, it’s important to understand the old way of doing things. Conventional restoration is based on the principle of simply drying the air inside a building. This is done with dehumidifiers that slowly remove water from the air, condense it into liquid form, and then pump it into bucks or rains. The idea is that as the air gets dryer and dryer the moisture in wet carpet and pads, walls, or floors will be drawn out of the materials as a vapor. The vapors are then removed by the dehumidifiers. Industrial fans are also used to speed evaporation from the wet materials.
This method of drying buildings was developed decades ago, and it does work but it has several drawbacks. First, it’s slow. It can easily take five to seven days to dry a water damaged home or business correctly. More complex cases can take even longer. Second, if the structure is not completely dried fast enough some materials may have to be replaced that could otherwise be saved. This increases the cost and the time to complete the job. Third, it takes a lot of equipment that’s very loud and hard to live with. If it gets turned off, for example at night, the process of drying the air has to start all over again. Fourth, the amount of disruption to a household or a business is really stressful and makes the entire restoration experience more of a nightmare than it has to be.
While there are certain situations where using conventional drying systems still makes sense we utilize Blue Water Damage Restoration equipment and directed heat drying. Directed heat drying is two to three times faster than conventional dehumidifier based restoration, here’s why. Instead of drying the air we deliver heat right to the water in wet materials. Heating up the water actually speeds up the water molecules making it really want to evaporate. With this method we don’t have to spend any time drying the air because the heated up water wants to jump out of wet materials and into the air. Once that happens we simply exhaust it to the outside with a temperature controlled fan.
Now there’s a lot of fancy science that explains this, but it might be easiest to understand using some common household examples. Have you ever stepped out of a hot shower into a bathroom filled with steamy air? Moisture is condensed on the mirror, counter, and other surfaces. If you point your hair dryer at the mirror for a minute it clears right up, you can even dry your hair in this environment. You also use these exact same principles of drying science when you dry your clothes in the clothes dryer. Both of these are examples of the same drying science that we use with our Blue Water Damage Restoration equipment.
Here’s how we do it in your home or business. First we use sophisticated instruments to determine the extent of the water damage. We then extract all the water we can in liquid form. The next step, and the key to our system is to direct heated air to the water in the wet materials. For maximum effectiveness we want to contain the heat only to those areas that are wet. After all, why heat up parts of the building that are already dry? Then we focus the heat where we want it to go with a number of techniques such as directing warm air in between carpet and pad. This allows warm air to not only dry the carpet and ad but also the sub floor, drywall, and Sil plaBlue Water Damage Restoration. When damage has occurred to certain building elements we contain the area using plastic, or other materials. This ensure the warm air goes to the wet materials and nowhere else.
We also use other specialized equipment in conjunction with Blue Water Damage Restoration, and directed heat drying principles. Specialized equipment is occasionally needed to dry difficult materials such as wood floors, insulated walls, plaster, stone and tile, cabinets, concrete, and so on. By using heat the ambient air in the effected areas of your home or business will get warmer than usual. However, because we contain and treat only the effected areas the rest of your home will be at a normal temperature. Even then our system doesn’t need to super heat the areas being treated. We maintain the temperature within a safe zone of between ninety five and ninety nine degrees. There’s no need to worry about damaging appliances, electronics, or even house plants in the effected areas. We do recommend removing cosmetics, candles, perishable foods, or anything else that might melt or spoil on a hot summer day.
While there are other heat drying systems on the market they overheat your whole house making it nearly impossible to live their during treatment. The extra heat may also cause major damage to appliances, electronics, and more. Only Blue Water Damage Restoration uses the directed heat drying concept that contains the heat only where we need it, to the wet materials.
Directed heat drying also has an important health benefit, because this systems dries so fast it eliminaBlue Water Damage Restoration conditions that allow mold and mildew to grow from the instant we begin drying. In addition, the operating temperatures of our drying system inhibit the growth of the vast majority of mold and fungi, and we don’t leave the job until everything is dry. Our technicians heck to make sure that your home or business is dry to the proper industry standards. Most of the time we can dry water damage while you still occupy your home or business. If the damage is so severe that you cannot occupy the premises our faster drying will get you back in much faster than other types of drying systems.
What many property owners love about directed heat drying is how quiet it is. With conventional restoration it can sound like an airplane inside the building because of all the noisy equipment. We use far fewer fans and the heat component of our system is totally silent. You’ll be able to live, work, or sleep comfortably while restoration is progressing. One of the biggest benefits of drying faster with directed heat drying is that we’ll save far more of the structure and contents than any other method. We’ll safely save carpet and pad, drywall, wood flooring, cabinets, tile and grout floors, stone and concrete, things that can’t always be saved with conventional restoration.
If these materials have to be replaced it can increase the cost of restoration by thousands of dollars. It could also extend the time to complete the job by days, weeks, or even months. With directed heat drying and Blue Water Damage Restoration you won’t have to worry about exceeding policy limits, or having strangers from a variety of contractors in your home for weeks on end spreading construction dust and dirt all over everything. Of course if there is damage that simply cannot be restored these items will have to be repaired or replaced. However, with our drying system there will be less reconstruction than any other drying system and directed heat drying is a very green way to restore your property. We’re on site for less time, we consume less electricity, and use less gas going back and forth, and because we save the majority of materials we save space in the landfill and are able to reduce the amount of chemical disinfectants applied.
Your insurance company will also really appreciate that we use directed heat drying because we restore so much more than conventional restorers there’s far less replacement. This means that they can save thousands of dollars per claim and get their files closed much, much faster. Plus they’re really concerned about delivering great service to their policy holders when they have a claim. That’s because they want them to renew their policies and also tell other people how great they were in handling the claim.
We’re so enthusiastic about our Blue Water Damage Restoration equipment and direct heat drying because it’s a better and faster way to dry. If we could choose any system to dry our own homes this is the one we’d use.
