Moisture and Water Clean Up Wood Floors.
The Process of Drying your Hardwood Floors is very important!
Two such types of equipment are the Dri-eaz Dri Force and the Injectidry HP60. Both of these devices are not designed as primary extraction devices but more to remove small amounts of water and large volumes of moisture. Water separator devices are used to keep water from entering the equipment. These devices are intended to be used with floor mat drying systems when used in this capacity. The drying mats suction themselves to the floor with the help of the suction units previously mentioned. Water and moisture are drawn up through the mats into the hoses. Ultimately the vapor is dispersed into the air to be removed by the dehumidifiers and the the water is caught in the separator. While these devices are primarily designed for use as suction devices, they can also be used in other capacities.
Different Type of Floors require Different Drying Equipment
The Injectidry and Dri Force are the two most popular mat suction devices in the industry. Los Angeles Water Damage utilizes both systems. We address water under laminate floors, water under engineered wood floors, water under traditional wood floors attached directly to the slab or sub-floor, and water under traditional wood floors on sleepers. Each scenario is dried by different equipment and techniques.
There are dozens of places where loose water will pond beyond that within the visible flooring. The water restoration experts at Los Angeles Water Damage are trained to recognize conditions that may be conducive to hidden water and remove it at the source.
