What is Dehumidification?

Dehumidification is a moisture control process utilized by the professionals at BMS CAT after water damage has occurred.

Who needs Dehumidification?

Anyone whose home or office has sustained water damage as the result of a flood, storm, plumbing leak or virtually anything else should request dehumidification services from local water damage restoration specialists right away.

What does Dehumidification Accomplish?

Dehumidification reduces indoor humidity levels and removes any remaining moisture following the initial water extraction process.

Once our team has mapped out all areas of the structure that may be harboring excess moisture, we will use commercial-grade fans, directed air movement and desiccant dehumidifiers to:

Prevent secondary water damage (e.g. warping and/or swelling of walls, floors, furniture, etc.).
Accelerate the evaporation of all remaining moisture via enhanced, dehumidified airflow.
Prevent the growth of mold or mildew by depriving them of the moisture needed to take root. 

Why is it so Important to act Quickly?

The longer your structure and belongings are exposed to water, the greater your risk of developing mold or mildew. With mold and mildew come a host of other problems you’ll want to avoid at all costs, if possible. Plus, the sooner you act, the sooner you can have your life or business up and running smoothly again.
