Using Direct Heat For New Jersey Water Damage Remediation
FEB 10, 2022 by JUAN MORALES
One method that often produces superior results for water remediation is the application of heat directly to the affected areas as quickly as possible. This can often allow many items that would otherwise be irretrievably damaged to be preserved and restored to use. Best Option Restoration (B.O.R.) of Tri-State offers disaster restoration services to clients throughout our service areas in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. Here is how the direct-heat water remediation process works.
Assessing the Damage
After a flooding or water damage event, your first move should be to document the damage with photographs and to contact your insurance company for further instructions. Once you have the photographic evidence in hand, you can typically move undamaged items out of the immediate area and to examine other items for potential damage. This can allow you to mitigate the potential damage caused by water in your living or working spaces.
Calling B.O.R. of Tri-State
Time is obviously of the essence when dealing with water damage at your home or business. In most cases, remediation should begin as soon as possible. At B.O.R. of Tri-State, we can often get started within 24 hours of your call to reduce the amount of damage caused by water leaks, flooding or other water events. This can allow you to begin drying out the damaged area quickly to produce improved results for your remediation project.
Applying Direct Heat to Damaged Areas and Items
The skilled technicians at B.O.R. of Tri-State can use direct heat to dry out smaller areas that have been submerged or damaged by water. In general, we recommend direct heat methods only for rooms and areas that have been submerged in water to less than one-fourth of the total height of the room. Other methods may be more effective and practical for areas that have been submerged more deeply and that require rapid remediation to prevent serious structural damage to your house or building.
