How do you dry out a large water damage?

Using a Commercial Desiccant for Drying

When there are multiple floors to dry because of a broken pipe or frozen sprinkler damage, it's important to have the right equipment. Some of the equipment used should be:

  1. Portable extractors to get up elevators.
  2. Low wattage / high powered air movers.
  3. Dumpsters for debris during demolition.
  4. A desiccant dehumidifier for quick drying.

The picture shows a desiccant dehumidifier that runs on either diesel or propane. It is extremely powerful and can move 5000 cubic feet of air a minute. The desiccant dehumidifies the building using tubbing that is ran through the wet areas to remove humidity at a rate that keeps up with the evaporation.
