Our team can expertly assess the extent of water damage for any sized emergency at any sized property, from residential homes to five-star hotels, to high-rise condominiums and beyond.

After completely removing any excess standing water and inspecting for mold on surfaces, we begin the process of structural drying. Our arsenal of restoration equipment includes the most technologically advanced air movers, injection floor drying systems, and air scrubbers available. To prevent structural damage, we also use non-penetrating meters that measure the moisture levels between layers of wood, flooring, drywall, and more to ensure the job is done thoroughly.

Structural Drying FAQs

What is Structural Drying?
Once water is removed from your property, it’s important to also extract any trapped moisture in the building materials themselves, such as drywall, wood, carpets, and more. At ASDT, we do this by ensuring powerful air circulation that will evaporate the moisture before mold, mildew, or rot can set in. We thoroughly test surfaces for harmful contaminants before bringing in air movers to ensure that we don’t cross-contaminate the area.
How Many Structural Drying Methods Are There?

In our industry, there are typically two options for structural drying: disruptive drying and aggressive drying. Disruptive drying involves cutting out materials like drywall, insulation, and baseboards to increase drying time, as well as materials that are beyond saving. Aggressive drying involves introducing warm, high-velocity air to dry materials in place without removing them.

Aggressive drying reduces the extent of repairs needed after remediation, but can only be performed if the water is removed in the first 48 to 72 hours. That’s why fast action is imperative. Call ASDT at 615.207.3877 for emergency service!
