Structural Drying FAQs


You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers.

Flooding and water damage from appliance leaks or burst pipes can weaken the structural integrity of your home or business. Damage from excessive water can also ruin flooring, foster mold growth, and leave strong odors behind. That’s why it’s vital to act fast when your home suffers water damage. 

The quicker water can be extracted, and structural drying can begin, the better chance you’ll have at mitigating the damage. However, some homeowners or businesses may not know how the structural drying process works. If you’ve never heard of it, take a few minutes to read through these structural drying FAQs. 

What Is Structural Drying?

After your home or business has experienced flooding, its structural materials need to be thoroughly dried before people can re-enter. This process of drying out the building’s structures is known as structural drying. Professional restoration companies, like DRIRITE®, offer structural drying services that help you avoid further damage or mold growth. 

Why You Need Water and Structural Drying

Without structural drying, you risk mold growth and deterioration of the materials that hold up your home. This process is intended to preserve as much structural material as possible. Pieces that are deemed to be too far damaged or deteriorated will need to be replaced. 

Why Use Professional Services?

Sure, you could try handling structural drying on your own. But consider that the professional restoration companies who provide structural drying services know how to handle just about any situation. They’re trained to assess risks and use techniques and advanced equipment that’ll get the job done right.

How Long Will It Take My Property To Dry?

It’s difficult to say exactly how long the structural drying process will take. However, DRIRITE® specialists can be at your property within the hour of you calling us. 

The time it takes to completely dry your property will depend on:

  • Location
  • Duration
  • Water source
  • Types of building materials
  • Weather conditions

What Happens During Structural Drying?

The structural drying process used to involve the removal of walls and flooring. However, modern technology allows us to remove excess moisture and dehumidify the air with no removal necessary. Here’s how it works:

  • We use special equipment to extract water
  • We evaporate moisture using air movers 
  • We dehumidify the air to help prevent further damage from rot or mold 
  • We continuously monitor the temperature to ensure the ideal environment for evaporation and dehumidification

What Are the Benefits of Structural Drying?

From time savings to water damage mitigation, structural drying is an integral part of getting your property back to its pre-loss condition. Here’s a breakdown using structural drying services. 

  • Time Savings—Professionals know every step of the process and can get it done efficiently. 
  • Damage Prevention—You can’t control the initial damage, but our team can help prevent further damage to your property.
  • Not Damaging—The structural drying process is meant to preserve as much of your property as possible.
  • Keeps Mold at Bay—Mold growth needs moisture, which is why we use advanced equipment to ensure as much moisture is taken out as possible. 

My Wood Floors Are Wet and Buckling. Will They Have To Be Replaced?

Assessing whether you’ll need to replace your wood flooring happens during the drying process. Our equipment will extract as much moisture as possible to help your flooring return to its pre-loss shape. However, it may be too far damaged. We can help you file an insurance claim and work with your adjuster to determine if they need replacing.
