What is In-Place Drying?
In-place drying is the restoration technique used after what the Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration refers to as Category 1 “clean” water damage, or damage that has been cause by clean water from a known source (such as a flood from a washing machine or bathtub). Because Category 1 water damage is the mildest form of water damage, carpets, pads and floorboards can be dried “in place” without having to be moved or replaced. In-place drying proceeds in three steps:
- First, as much excess water as possible is removed from the area.
- Second, the remaining water is evaporated using particular drying tools.
- Finally, the area is dehumidified and temperature controlled to prevent fungal growth and structural deterioration.
