Sanitation of water damages

To successfully sanitize water damages it is important that as little time possible passes from the beginning of flood to the start of first sanitation measures.

The first step is to determine the level of damage. This is done by carrying out surface measurements; test bores (boreholes) and snap-shots of conditions.

Various methods can be used to drain floor and walls.

We always begin the drainage with powerful dehumidifiers to lower the amount of humidity in the air and consequently in present materials later (that way we protect eventual furniture and other goods). We use a new technique of drainage using microwave driers wherever possible. One must not overlook drying of insulation materials, floor fills and walls.

Drainage with systems for damp materials ventilation

Use of classic water damage sanitation method is much faster and cheaper compared to renovation of damaged object(s). That way affected rooms and/or objects are returned to previous state and purposes in a very short time. Only a few boreholes are necessary to dry out insulations or floor fills. With floor boreholes and special connectors we enable a supply of warm, dry air into layers of floor fills and insulation using air turbines and absorption dryers. This way we saturate damp insulation layers with hot, dry air which dampens itself with water vapor and blows out through dilatation slots or spatial drill outs.  With assistance of air dehumidifiers we turn the moist air into the condensate or water, which is then collected in dehumidifier containers or directly deviated into the sink. This method provides fast and complete drainage without additional material damage or influence to the insulation value. Regular control with precise measurement instruments and registration of measured data are enabling an effective sanitation management.
