What Goes On In the Dehumidification Process?
Dehumidification is a process where excess moisture is removed from your property. The process often takes place following a deep cleaning or when water has to be cleared out following a flood. Our team at Spangler Restoration will provide you with the help you need for dehumidifying your property.
But what happens during dehumidification? You should look at what will go on when getting your surfaces dried oDehumidificationff.
- The dehumidifier must be sized based on the area you need to have treated. The size is based on the number of pints of water a unit can remove in a 24-hour period. Use a humidifier with a capacity of 10 pints for every 500 square feet.
- A fan will start working in the dehumidifier. This will take in air from the area, particularly air with high moisture content.
- The air that is collected will get in contact with cooling coils. Those coils will remove moisture as the temperature is lowered.
- The treated air is released back into the room. The air should be dry at this point.
- The key is to get the relative humidity in a room to around 30 to 50 percent. This is a natural level of moisture that does not cause surfaces to become wet but still ensures the surfaces will not wear out.
