Building Response is one of the leading firms for flood drying equipment in London and surrounding areas. Whether you need to just dry out a basement or you have a major challenge to dry out an entire building, we can help.
Drying a Flooded Building With a Dehumidifier
The best thing you can do on your own is increase ventilation to the wet area as much as possible, so open the available doors or windows, providing any nasty weather has subsided. If it is safe to use electricity in the area, fans are a great help to circulate air. Many people run heaters to speed the recovery process, but one should be vary careful with this technique. Drying flooded materials too quickly with heat can easily cause cracking in plaster or twisting of important and expensive wood pieces like doors and floorboards.
That’s why Building Response has built an inventory of the dehumidifiers in London, and a well-trained staff who know how to appropriately use them. We have the proper flood drying equipment and experience to effectively address any flooding problem.
