3 Best Ways To Get Rid Of Moisture After Your Home Sustains Water Damage

One of the trickiest things you must deal with after your home sustains water damage is getting rid of all the water and all the moisture. Even once the visible water is gone, there is more than likely still moisture that you still need to get rid of. Moisture can penetrate the items in your home, and cause damage even once much of the water is gone. That is why you need to deal with the moisture after you get rid of the water.

#1 Open Things Up

The first thing you need to do is open things up to promote the natural flow of air through the space. For example, open any doors or windows in the space to help the air circulate. If there are any cabinet doors, open them up to get air moving. Take out and remove drawers to promote the flow of there through cabinets and furniture. Open things up and let as much natural air flow; this strategy works well if the humidity levels outside are not too high.

#2 Add in Artificial Air Movement

Next, you need to add in the mechanical movement of air in the space that was impacted by water damage. To get air moving, you are going to want to rent some high-powered fans. These high-powered fans move air at a much faster rate than a standard box fan and will really help get the moisture out of the damaged area.

Do not turn on your air conditioning unit if there is a chance that water could have damaged it. You don't want to use your air conditioning unit or furnace to get the air moving until they have official been inspected and cleared to be used again.

#3 Rent a Dehumidifier

When you are at the rental store, rent a dehumidifier as well as high-powered fans. High-powered fans will get the air moving, but a dehumidifier will literally pull the moisture out of the air. Keep an eye on the water reserve for your dehumidifier. You are more than likely going to need to empty it out multiple time as the dehumidifier does its job and pulls all the excess moisture out of the air.

After an area of your home has sustained water damage, and you have gotten rid of the standing water, you need to worry about the moisture that was left behind. Open up cabinets, drawers, windows, and doors to get air flowing naturally. Rent high-powered fans to add more air movement. Use a dehumidifier to literally pull the moisture out of the room. Getting rid of the moisture will help save your space and allow you to repair and rebuild.
