A storm will not only damage your home in Kansas City, MO but the associated flooding will result in significant water damage to your home. In such a situation, hiring expert storm damage cleanup professionals (like ServiceMaster DSI) gives you the assurance that the necessary safety measures will be implemented while cleanup is performed.
Additionally, cleanup experts understand how to properly use advanced equipment to ensure your home becomes completely dry after a water damage situation occurs. Below, we’ll go through the details of how professionals accomplish these tasks.
Using the Right Heating System
There are two heating systems options that cleanup professionals use when it comes to drying water in homes. However, these electric heating systems have very high amperage requirements; accessing this amount of power can lead to safety concerns.
Professionals are well aware of these safety concerns and often look for alternative options such as heating systems that use fossil fuels.
There are two options to choose from: direct or indirect heating systems. Experienced storm damage cleanup professionals have becomes skilled in the use of these systems and know how to select the most appropriate option that will not result in any security concerns.
- Direct Fired Heating Systems: In these systems, the by-products (such as carbon monoxide) generated due to combustion aren’t separated from your home’s air system and may result in health safety concerns
- Indirect Fired Heating Systems: These systems properly vent by-products of combustion with use of different air streams. One is used for heating of building and the other for burning and generating heat
Experts are fully aware of these differences and typically select indirect fired heating systems in case additional heating is required to expedite the drying process within your home.
Use of Advanced Equipment
Another benefit of hiring experts is that they have access to advanced equipment (like infrared cameras). Such equipment can be used to determine whether the drying process is progressing as expected and also helps in analyzing the presence of latent moisture in inaccessible parts of your home (i.e., behind a wall) after the drying procedure is completed.
Experts also understand that a home can quickly attain temperature equilibrium after water extraction has been carried out. As a result, the infrared camera won’t be able to examine the home’s moisture content, even if the drywall is soaked with water (if the temperature of the drywall is same as its surrounding air).
This is where the experience of a professional becomes so important. They can easily solve this problem by switching on the air conditioner. As soon as the air conditioner is turned on, it’ll have an effect on air temperatures and the infrared camera will catch the temperature differences in the wet sections of your home.
