Serving Tampa, Clearwater, Carrollwood, & Nearby Areas.

Water damage can strike unexpectedly, wreaking havoc on your residential or commercial property. Whether it’s a burst pipe, flooding, or any other water-related disaster, quick and professional structural drying is crucial to prevent further damage and restore your space to its pre-damaged condition.

What is Structural Drying, and How Does It Differ from Regular Drying?

Structural drying is a specialized process designed to remove moisture from the structural components of a building, such as walls, floors, and ceilings. Unlike regular drying methods, structural drying involves advanced equipment and techniques to ensure a thorough and efficient removal of water, preventing potential long-term damage.

What Equipment Does Triton Restoration Use For Structural Drying?

Our professional technicians assess the specific requirements of each water damage scenario and deploy a combination of these tools to ensure thorough and efficient structural drying.

  1. Dehumidifiers – Desiccant and refrigerant dehumidifiers are employed to extract moisture from the air, accelerating the drying process. They play a crucial role in maintaining optimal humidity levels during structural drying.
  2. Air Movers – High-powered air movers are strategically placed to enhance air circulation and promote the evaporation of moisture from wet surfaces. This aids in speeding up the drying of walls, floors, and other structural elements.
  3. Moisture Meters – These devices are used to measure the moisture content in different materials. Moisture meters help technicians assess the extent of water damage and determine when materials have reached the desired level of dryness.
  4. Thermal Imaging Cameras – These cameras are utilized to identify hidden pockets of moisture within walls and other structures. By detecting temperature variations, technicians can pinpoint areas that require focused attention during the drying process.
  5. Hygrometers – Hygrometers measure the humidity levels in the air. This information is crucial for maintaining an optimal drying environment, as different materials may require specific humidity conditions for effective drying.
  6. Air Scrubbers – Air scrubbers help improve indoor air quality during the drying process by removing contaminants, odors, and airborne particles. This is particularly important in situations where water damage may have led to mold growth or other pollutants.
  7. Floor Drying Systems – Specialized systems designed for drying different types of flooring, including hardwood, carpet, and tile. These systems provide controlled heat and airflow to expedite the drying process without causing damage to the flooring materials.
  8. Drying Mats – These mats are designed for extracting moisture from hardwood floors. They are placed directly on the affected area and use a combination of suction and heat to pull moisture from the wood.
  9. Negative Air Machines – Negative air machines create negative pressure environments, preventing the spread of contaminants and mold spores during the drying process. This is particularly important in situations where there is a risk of airborne pollutants.
