Drying Commercial Spaces - Desiccant Dehumidification
Commercial spaces often mean larger scale projects with many different factors. Is the space conditioned or unconditioned? Is there adequate power available or will portable power need to be brought in? Does the business own the building or are they a tenant? Finding answers to these questions are critical but what are some questions that pop up after a job has begun?
Due to commercial buildings complexity a proper drying plan needs to be put in place. This means identifying the answers to all the previous questions but also asking questions like, “what materials am I drying, how fast to they need to get dry, what is the best equipment to utilize.” On large scale projects with a variety of materials Desiccant dehumidification is king. Desiccant dehumidification utilizes hot dry air that is ducted from outside to help dry dense materials such as hardwoods, plaster, or lathe more efficiently than traditional dehumidification. They also can handle larger spaces more easily. When you look for a restoration company for your restoration needs, make sure they have the right tools for the job.
