Once all of the standing water has been removed, the dehumidification process can begin. But what exactly is dehumidification and why do you need it?
Dehumidification process utilizes dehumidifiers which function by pulling warm, humid air in and releasing warm, dry air out. More air can be moved by a larger unit, which also allows it to dry a larger area more efficiently.
Air is drawn in through a fan on one side before passing through one or more components that actively cool the air. The air loses its ability to contain water in a gaseous state as it rapidly cools, and the humid air’s water vapor starts to condense onto the cooling device. Eventually, this water drips into a gathering place, thereby being taken out of the atmosphere.
This air is then warmed up and released into the water-damage area to collect moisture again and repeat the cycle, effectively reducing humidity levels of the property.
