Structural Drying Restoration Equipments for Rent in Toronto

The 4 Principles for Drying after Water Damage!

So you had a flood in your home. A burst pipe? Maybe a drain backup? Or just forgot the tap on. Whatever the case, you are now surrounded by water, your carpets are wet, water is sipping in your hardwood floors, clothing, toys and furnishings are wet. Where do you start? Water should be extracted as soon as possible to limit damage to your boards and drywall or worst, buckle your hardwood floor.

4 Drying Principles!

Calling a water damage restoration company is the right decision. We have professional grade equipment like vacuums for water, pumps, driers, dehumidifiers, and more. A home should be completely dry within 4 days or the risk for bacteria growth increases exponentially. Don't take the risk of trying to remedy the situation yourself.

Water Clean up - Extraction!

The first step of the drying process is to remove all the excess water from the affected rooms. We use the latest technology of water extractors and vacuums. All excess water is extracted from floors and all wet furniture is moved from the affected areas. When it comes to carpets, even if the top appears dry, the layer below acts as a sponge, so if possible lift the corners to accommodate the water extraction from that layer also.

After a flood, your drywall, wood framing and subfloors are typically saturated with water which needs to be dried as to not cause further damage. This happens by evaporation. We use industrial air movers that move thousands of cubic feet of air per minute. We place one of these air-movers every 6-8 ft. of wall space to maximize evaporation.


After turning water into vapors there is elevated humidity in the space, that is when industrial Dehumidifiers are used to remove moisture from the air and turn them back into water that is removed from the property.


The temperature has a big effect to the drying process. Turning up the heat would be recommended. Proper temperature control will increase the drying rate. Restoration equipment also emit heat so that contributes to the drying  and evaporation processes.
