Torrential rain, floodwaters and flooding accidents can have catastrophic effects on buildings, infrastructure, businesses and homes. The humidity left behind by these events must be dealt with and adequately removed, otherwise, it can have negative and costly consequences:
- Moisture damage is caused until a balanced humidity can be established
- Laminates, glue, glued-together fixtures and furnishings suffer significantly
- Mould, fungi and bacterial growth affect the integrity, value and aesthetics
- Refurbishment and rebuilding costs increase
CONTROLLED DEHUMIDIFICATION IS VITAL FOR REPAIRING DAMAGE
Flooding itself causes considerable damage to buildings and their contents, and, to add insult to injury, additional damage can later occur from the resulting humidity until it is properly controlled. Humidity is exceptionally high when water has seeped into every crack and corner of a space, and when the materials present have effectively acted like sponges – soaking up and holding onto moisture.
Some types of structures, building elements and interior fittings need near-instant drying to avoid permanent damage, while other materials and components require slow, carefully controlled drying to avoid further damage. That is why controlled dehumidification is crucial.
