Water damage can cause serious problems at your home, business, or commercial structure. Whether it’s due to natural disasters like heavy storms/flooding or common issues ranging from an overflowing toilet to a burst water pipe; water in your home, business, or commercial structure is a truly destructive force that’s difficult to reverse. Here’s how Rhino can help:
Structural Drying & Moisture Extraction. Providing a complete moisture inspection ensures our clients thorough and comprehensive detail. Rhino utilizes non-invasive State-of- the-Art moisture detection instruments to establish the extent of water migration, water damages & moisture intrusion to building materials and contents. Utilizing information through discovery & detection helps us determine the dry standard & establish structural drying goals.
The first step in the water removal process is extraction. Rhino utilizes technologically advanced equipment. The process of water extraction is performed in an expeditious manner. Rhino determines which type of moisture extraction device should be used to best serve our clients. While it is important to remove as much water as possible initially, it is also important to stay focused on the amount of water that can be left behind in porous materials and using a professional water damage company for structural drying becomes very important.
Rhino takes careful considerations early on to determine if existing drying sources such as HVAC systems & ceiling fans may be utilized. State-of-the Art clean, decontaminated air moving devices are incorporated into the environment to more efficiently move air across wet surfaces and accelerate evaporation. Utilizing the science of drying, Rhino determines what equipment should be placed to best control the environment for structural drying.
Dehumidification is the process of removing excess moisture from the air. Utilizing clean, decontaminated, high efficiency dehumidifiers, Rhino can control humidity and accelerate evaporation and water extraction, moving you closer to the dry standard established early on in the process.
Rhino will monitor the site daily to record atmospheric readings & moisture content in building materials and affected areas. Rhino utilizes the recorded information to determine what areas if any may be holding the most moisture and re-locate air movers if necessary for additional moisture extraction. Taking measurements daily allows us to ensure our clients that drying goals are moving forward & in most circumstances being met within a 72 hour period.
Rhino has been helping its customers with water extraction and drying services since the early 2000’s. Regardless of the nature or scope, an immediate response to a water loss is critical. It takes only a few hours for a small loss to become a big problem. Our Staff and Technicians are certified and have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to keep demolition to a minimum.
The assumption that what looks dry, is dry is a common misconception. As water can wick up walls, under vinyl flooring, and into building materials and cavities. The only way to know that building materials are truly dry is to test with moisture meters.
Unfortunately, Shop Vacs are not powerful enough to extract the amount of water that may be in your carpet or flooring material. Industrial extractors, like the ones we use for mitigation are needed to properly ensure that all the water is pulled from surfaces. It is important to first remove standing water, including water collected under carpets and flooring, before effective drying can begin.
While there isn’t really anything that can fend off a flood, the damage due to mold growth can be controlled if an antimicrobial is applied prior to flood waters rising. In our experience, our customers that hired us for preventable measures fared better than the customers that did not take those precautions.
Drying time is determined by a combination of factors, including the location, duration and source of water, the types of building materials, the weather conditions and how quickly the drying process can begin. Through consistent monitoring and evaluation of the drying process, we can determine when the drying is complete. Your carpet may feel dry to the touch, but padding and subfloors may still be wet underneath. While there are no rules to determine how long your property will take to dry, we can tell you it may take between three and five days or more, depending on the conditions.
When water damage has occurred, water can be absorbed into the drywall (sheetrock), baseboards, subflooring, etc. Drying these surfaces requires high velocity air movers to accelerate the release of absorbed water into the air. Dehumidifiers are necessary for removing this excess moisture to help protect property and create conditions for efficient drying. Please do not turn off or move drying equipment without first calling RHINO. Turning off the equipment may result in extending the drying time.
